Absolute Evil, released in 2009, is a thrilling mystery movie that follows the journey of a group of high-profile detectives as they investigate a serial killer who, for years, has been targeting young women. The movie begins with a flashback to a previous crime scene where one of the lead detectives, Jack, played by David Carradine, painfully recalls his inability to save a young girl from the killer's clutches. Years later, he is called back to action when the serial killer resurfaces, bringing with him some shocking clues.

The movie is masterfully crafted, drawing the audience into the complicated and dark world of the detectives tasked with investigating the murders. From the outset, it is clear that all the detectives have skeletons hiding in their closets, making it hard to define who they are, what motivates them, and who they can trust.

Rusty Joiner plays Detective Rick, a good-looking, but conniving detective who has a history of getting too close to the suspects. Carolyn Neff is Detective Jane, Rick's partner, who is trying to break free from her mentor's dark influence. During the investigation, the detectives start confessing things to each other and trying to solve the puzzle pieces of the killer's identity.

The plot of the movie becomes increasingly convoluted, as the detectives must not only track the serial killer, but also solve the mystery of why he is targeting the specific women on his hit-list. The investigation takes them down a dangerous and complex road as they discover clues that link the victims direct to the detectives themselves. Every plot twist and turn will leave the audience spellbound, trying to solve the mystery themselves as the detectives are.

David Carradine's performance as Jack is particularly impressive. He portrays the detective's wounded soul and his internal fights brilliantly, conveying the pain of the past with grace and sensitivity. But, he's not the only one who shines in this movie. Carolyn Neff and Rusty Joiner's impressive performances cannot go unnoticed.

The movie's visuals are stunning, bringing every aspect of the story to life. Shot in an eerie and dark city, each scene evokes a sense of foreboding and dread. The music adds to the suspense, heightening every moment and keeping the audience on edge. The combination of these elements creates a high-tension film that leaves the audience breathless.

One of the strengths of the movie is how it handles the subject matter of serial killers. Rather than glorifying the killer and his actions, the director paints him as a twisted, very human character who has deep-rooted motivations driving his actions. The audience is left with a sense of horror at the same time that it is motivated to help find the criminal in the way reality shows do.

Absolute Evil is a must-watch movie for fans of mystery, thrillers and crime dramas. Its masterful storytelling, powerful performances, and impressive visuals makes it stand out amongst the crime movies of its time. Along the way, the plot twists and turns leading the detectives and the audience on an emotional journey that is sure to leave an indelible impression on one's psyche long after the movie is over.

Overall, a must-watch thriller due to its gripping storyline, masterful direction, and brilliant acting with Carradine's sensitive and moving performance being a standout.
