Three Blind Mice

"Weak"

Three Blind Mice Review


What the title Three Blind Mice has to do with a movie about a serial killer and webcams is beyond me, but I'm not losing any sleep thinking about it. This Edward Furlong vehicle is a poor film at best, and its odd title is the least of its problems.

The story introduces us to Thomas Cross (Furlong), who is obsessed with Internet webcams (so 1999!). One night, he witnesses his favorite gal Cathy as she is murdered while she's preparing dinner in her apartment. Yipes! The dinner preparation isn't so exciting (though Thomas is enthralled by it), but that murder certainly wakes him up. Too bad he doesn't really know where she lives, just her web URL, which the cops don't really grab on to.

Thomas ends up hooking up with a lady cop (Emilia Fox) who's wise in the ways of the web, and a helper named Mark (Chiwetel Ejiofor - say that five times fast! Hell, say that once!!) to trap the killer. Oh, these kids today...

Three Blind Mice doesn't make much sense any way you cut it, and the acting falls somewhere on this side of believable. Fox makes the least likely cop I've seen since Sandra Bullock, and Furlong's punky schtick wears thin awfully fast. What we're left with is a lot of grainy webcammish footage -- often featuring scantily clad ladies -- in lieu of actual cinema. And that's unfortunately the best thing the film has going for it.
