Director Robby Henson translates Christian author Ted Dekker's book to the big screen in a movie full of incredible twists and turns, and the ending comes out of nowhere to shock the viewer.

Seminary student Kevin Parsons (Marc Blucas) is coming home from a class when his cell phone rings. The disguised voice on the other end says that Kevin has three minutes to "confess his sin" or the voice will blow up his car. Kevin doesn't know what the voice is alluding to, so he jumps out of the car just before the car is completely blown up. The police department believes that the Riddle Killer has resurfaced after months of inactivity. Kevin is paired with police psychologist Jennifer Peters (Justine Waddell) to help keep him safe and solve the mystery. More riddles are given to Kevin, and his childhood friend Samantha (Laura Jordan) also enters the picture to help Kevin. Can they unmask this psychotic killer before it's too late?

The acting in Thr3e leaves a little to be desired. The actors move woodenly through their parts, and it doesn't seem to flow well. The plot is nowhere as intriguing and captivating as the book, and it's obviously low-budget. However, the shocking conclusion and the overall theme of good versus evil make it an interesting and worthwhile movie to view on DVD. Unfortunately, though, the Christian audience who have enjoyed and appreciated Dekker's book might be turned off by the PG-13 rating (for suspense and minor violence).

There are no special features offered other than trailers, which is a little disappointing. With the breadth of Dekker's career, an interview with him would have been interesting. But Thr3e wasn't in theaters for long, so those who missed it will enjoy the movie on DVD.
