All you really need for a good crime thriller like this is the stupidest, most belligerent cop who ever lived. It would be helpful if the people who want to help also have the stupidest, most belligerent boss who ever lived. Dr. Who is in fine form as the evil psycho. He's so kooky! Just a little over the top. A smidge.
A very tightly scripted, fun thriller. David Tennant really chews the scenery and makes a cartoonishly evil and clever villain. Devlin did a wonderful job of keeping the surprises coming and building the tension in every scene. Downtown Portland makes for a great backdrop to the story, though I may be a bit biased since it's my hometown.
