SOLACE Blu-ray Review

The Movie

Synopsis

Anthony Hopkins, Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and Colin Farrell bring to life this ripping tale of a brilliant psychic- and the serial killer that stays one step ahead of him. When three bodies turn up with identical wounds, cryptic notes nearby, and no other evidence, an FBI Agent (Morgan) calls on his clairvoyant colleague (Hopkins) to solve the case.  But when the all-seeing killer knows every move they’ll make, how can they stop the slaughter?

My Thoughts

I give this Blu-ray a B+.

I was excited to watch the Blu-ray as some familiar names were calling out to me on the blu-ray cover.  Anthony Hopkins, Collin Farrell, James Dean Morgan (just to name a few). This blu-ray is a ride from beginning to end.  It had me on the edge of my seat literally.  I really like the scene where John Clancy (Hopkins) was replaying the events prior to the murder.  He was placed on paused while the events unfolded around him.  Hopkins does not disappoint. Charles Ambrose (played by Collin Farrell) is intense.  There are a few “WTF” moments that will have you scratching your head.  Find out for yourself!
