FBI agent Jennifer Marsh is tasked with hunting down a seemingly untraceable serial killer who posts live videos of his victims on the Internet. As time runs out, the cat and mouse chase becomes more personal.
On a remote island, the FBI has a training program for their psychological profiling division, called "Mindhunters", used to track down serial killers. The training goes horribly wrong, however, when a group of seven young agents discover that one of them is a serial killer, and is setting about slaying the others. Can the few that are left figure out who the killer is in time? Written by

At the end Lucas is shot in the top of his head and falls over in the water. When he's in closeup, just as he is about to tip over, his arms are down his body. Then in the next shot from the water surface, he actually falls in the water and his arms are raised above his head like he's diving in. See more »
When Christian Slater is on the marquee of the movie you're about to see, you can pretty much expect a couple things. The first one is that Slater most likely will die within the first reel and the other one is that the movie will probably suck. "Mindhunters" doesn't disappoint on either level. This is not a spoiler, this is fact.
Val Kilmer, another fallen star, is a sadistic trainer for a group of would be FBI profilers. The group is on the verge of advancing in the program but as a final test, Kilmer brings them to a secluded island to test their skills. The problem is that a killer is offing each profiler one by one and the agents all suspect each other. They all become paranoid and there is a lot of gun pointing.
This movie has some entertaining moments and I give it some props for coming up with such interesting ways of impalement and death. But for the most part, this movie is pretty stupid. The motivation behind all the violence is really pretty weak and I knew exactly when the little twist comes in to play.
"Mindhunters" is decent popcorn fare, but it's really a waste of time. (**)
