Critic Reviews for Profile
The performances are unremarkable, the direction minimal, while the clumsy appropriation of a real world Isis threat for cheap cinematic thrills seems, at best, questionable.
The answers to these mysteries are mighty predictable (a fact that Bekmambetov tries to obscure by reaching them through a string of silly plot twists), but Profile nevertheless sells us on how seductive these interactions can be.
It is contrived but it does hang together, just about, although Bekmambetov cheats it a little with speeded-up "time passing" sequences.
An undeniably engrossing but almost entirely specious affair: Any factual grounding gives way beneath the film as it devolves into shrill heart-versus-head melodrama.
Screenlife format isn't just a gimmick, it's an effective and unconventional cinematic method that allows you to step straight into the mind of the character and put you through the ringer right with them.
