340 meters per second

Trust only movement. Life happens at the level of events, not of words. Trust movement.

You are what you do.

Mindhunters struck us as a good rental for a lazy weekend: a by-the-numbers thriller featuring the cutie from ER, the voice of Cesar "where the holiness does his business, is his business" Vialpando, Angelina Jolie's least famous (but most charming) husband, a couple of slumming burnouts and (yay!) the Canadian lead from Cold Case.

While the first act is a little pedantic and the second unfolds according to the formula for these kind of "die individual grisly deaths" movies, the fight scene in the final act is worth the rental all by itself: three characters go at it in a knock-down, drag-out brawl across three rooms and two floors. It's a well-shot, visceral and creative skirmish that almost seems out of place, it's so good.
