Smart & Ingenious Thriller

MindHunters is a modern day tale of the great Agatha Christie's "Ten Little Indians". It is a GREAT who-dun-it and you dont know & wont know who, up until the very, very end. It has suspense, thrills, laughs, ingenuity, keeps you guessing & is a very smart thriller. There is some language, a mild sex scene, violence and mild gore. In my opinion this should have been rated PG-13, simply because I dont think it warrants its R rating. There are plenty of PG-13 flicks worse that this, But, we do have too many PG-13 "wanna be suspense/horror" flicks out there now that & this is welcomed mid teen-adult thriller fare. I give the great action director Renny Harlin, 2 Big Thumbs Up & 5 Stars out of 5 Stars. Rent this today, you will not regret it.
