In Conclusion: This is a not a good film. Sara Shahi will play police Captain Lisa Watson. After phoning in roles throughout the 2000s, Pacino has had a minor career resurgence in recent years, and gives this movie a lot more than he gets out of it. Crime journalist Christi Davies Brittany Snow shadows the detectives, aiding them with her own insights into the criminal mind. As an example, our intrepid reporter Brittney Snow gives this insufferable and endless speech complete with fake tears about how hard it is to be a cop, how great cops are, and how she asked for this assignment so she could expose the greatness of cops to the general public.
Certainly, more character than the one-dimensional script would indicate. Can they solve the puzzle in time? Brintey Snow Sloane has zero charisma and screen presence, and there is little tension when most of the victims are random and unknown till they are found hanging around. At the end of the speech, an incredulous Al Pacino ad-libs a weary yeah great whatever with only his facial expression that is simply the best thing in the movie. For starters Tommy Wiseau has a more believable New Orleans accent than the southern fried nonsense Al is trying to pull off here.

There is a subplot where we need to keep it out the press as if daily lynchings in a mid-sized southern metropolis would ever go unnoticed. Screenplay: Michael Caissie, Charles Huttinger. Film Review: 'Hangman' Reviewed online, Houston, Dec. She stumbles upon the first victim while on a ride-along with Ruiney and, for some reason, sticks around through the rest of the investigation as the detectives track the killer.
The journalist tramples over crime scenes throughout the movie but winds up doing most of the detective work, so it evens out. He pinpoints training as the main issue. Summary: Decorated homicide detective Ray Archer Al Pacino partners with criminal profiler Will Ruiney Karl Urban to catch one of the city's notoriously vicious serial killers, who is playing a twisted version of murder using the child's game… Hangman, while journalist Christi Davies Brittany Snow reports on the crime spree, shadowing the Decorated homicide detective Ray Archer Al Pacino partners with criminal profiler Will Ruiney Karl Urban to catch one of the city's notoriously vicious serial killers, who is playing a twisted version of murder using the child's game… Hangman, while journalist Christi Davies Brittany Snow reports on the crime spree, shadowing the detectives. Outside of her yay cops speech, Britney Snow seems to have no purpose in the film. Ruiney Urban , a homicide detective barely recovered from the unsolved murder of his wife, treats his latest investigation as a personal matter when he finds two badge numbers — his own and that of Archer Pacino , a retired associate — carved into a desk at the scene of what turns out to be merely the first of several interrelated crimes. Bonus points off in that at no point do the detectives actually try to solve the hangman game the killer leaves.

In Hangman, Al Pacino plays retired police detective Archer, who bides his time by doing crossword puzzles, in Latin, outside of a donut shop.

The two detectives rejoin forces to piece together clues tauntingly placed behind at subsequent slayings by a serial killer somehow inspired by the guess-the-letter game of Hangman, all the while accompanied — whether they want to be or not — by Christi Davies Brittany Snow , an investigative reporter bent on writing the ultimate ride-along story. In the director's defense, I am not sure how one could have shot this without a rewrite and cutting some of the killings. The movie is one of those one step behind serial killer procedurals Think Seven where the cops have to guess the next victim using clues left behind at the previous crime scene. An intrepid reporter Britney Snow has been assigned to tag along as the three try to solve the case while the victims pile up one every twenty-four hours.
