A student (Marc Blucas) gets caught up in the twisted game of an unseen psychopath and must confess a sin from his past or die.
" Directed by Robby Henson, this theologically driven thriller from 20th Century Fox's Fox Faith division, steps gingerly around sex and watches its tongue. But it's far too comfy with the lingua franca of American cinema: violence. "
" If Thr3e is any indication of what we can expect from the emerging trend of studio-funded faith-based movies, we may find ourselves wishing The Passion of the Christ had been a box-office bomb. "
" It's a pretty run-of-the-mill B suspense movie. "
" Rent Se7en for an authentically scary thriller with religious undertones. "
" Suspenselessly directed by Robby Henson, Thr3e commits the eighth deadly sin -- boredom. "
" The vile sadism of the Saw movies has been replaced by decorative references to Saint Augustine and Immanuel Kant, and there's a beautiful but brainy police profiler (Justine Waddell) on hand to dispense a thick layer of psychobabble. "
" There are no dead bodies here, but perhaps filmgoers, tired of all those secular scares and heathen horrors, won't miss the aesthetic pleasure of a creative murder scene. "
" There's precious little in the way of clammy tension or mounting apprehension as Thr3e plods toward a climax that is startlingly absurd, yet not entirely illogical. "
" Thr3e needs help with more than spelling. "
" Ultimately Three, for all its philosophizing, is little more than a standard serial-killer movie with pretensions. "
