Detective John Hobbes (Denzel Washington) attends the execution of Edgar Reese (Elias Koteas), the serial killer he caught. Hobbes disregards a cryptic message Reese shares shortly before he dies. Not long afterward, murders are committed that are eerily linked to those of the late Mr. Reese - and that coincidentally frame Hobbes as a suspect. An investigation leads Hobbes to the doorstep of Gretta Milano (Embeth Davidtz), a late cop's daughter who leads him to believe innocent people are being "touched" by evil.

Factual error: In the scene where Hobbes is talking to Reese in his cell, Reese talks to him in a foreign language. It's stated on at least two occasions that Reese is speaking Dutch. He isn't - he's speaking German.

Suggested correction: It's Dutch. "Wie de bal kaatst." Just what Reese said. "What goes around..."
