    The Watcher

    The Watcher stars James Spader, as Chicago Police Detective Joel Campbell, Keanu Reeves stars as David Allen Griffin... a serial killer. Academy award winner Marisa Tomei stars as Polly.

    Joel(Spader)receives a photo of a young intended murder victim, through the mail. Griffin (Keanu Reeves) is the serial killer who seeks Joel's attention by murdering young women. Polly is the doctor that Joel sees for therapy. He tells her about Griffin and seeks to understand why Griffin has chosen him with whom to play this deadly game.

    Griffin's luck changes when he makes the huge mistake of abducting Polly.

    This is a very good movie.
    The Performances are believeable. The visuals are not too graphic and there is a real plot. The scripts is very good. The soundtrack helps to set the mood for mystery and danger. This movie can become an unforgettable favorite of yours. There isn't really graphic sex but the fact that the victims are all female may qualify it as a little sexy...maybe. There is a lot of excitment and emotion. The rest speaks for itself.

    I really like this movie.

    The Watcher is an entertaining and intriguing psychothriller about the troubled lives of a police detective,(played by James Spader) and a serial killer, known as Griffin (played by Keanu Reeves)and how their lives become interwined in a deadly game of cat and mouse.

    Wow !!!, Keanu is an awesome Villian

    Keaunu Reeves intended on only plating a small part inThe Watcher actually makes the movie work. This is his first role as a villian and he was superb. I think he is going to contnue playing the bad guy, atleast I hope so.
