Rated 2.0

A group of FBI profiler trainees is isolated on an island for an exercise to investigate a mock murder, but before the fake crime can be committed, the real ones start, with someone killing off the trainees one by one. Writers Wayne Kramer and Kevin Brodbin boldly rip off Agatha Christie’s Ten Little Indians—so boldly that they must have been confident none of their audience had read it, but so badly that they may not have read it themselves (or, if they did, they didn’t learn very much). Characters are so thin, and motivation is so absent, that the only suspense comes from wondering what outlandish Rube Goldberg-style contraption is going to hit the next victim. The cast is a mix of some who have proven they deserve better (Val Kilmer, Christian Slater, etc.) and others who have yet to prove anything.
