Good movie with wonderful performances
This movie was panned by the critics when it came out since the plot was considered to be "non-original". I can't say Jon Amiel is my favourite director, but I think he's got potential and he can make at some point in his career a truly great film. Copycat is an an example of how a psycokiller movie that could have been just another clone ends up being an exciting and a very interesting film that holds your attention until the end.

I'm sorry to put it so bluntly, but the reasons why this movie is good are the following: 1- Holly Hunter is in it, and only that makes the movie a must-see 2- Sigourney Weaver proves again she's a great actress that can perfectly impose herself though acting with Holly Hunter in the same movie. 3- The way the killer murders is rather imaginative, and many important details from the killings he tries to imitate have been included. 4- The relationship between Hellen, M.J and Reuben is one of the most interesting points of the movie

As for the bad things, McNamara's character could have been focused-on a little bit more, and Daryll Lee Cullum is too similar to Hannibal Lecter, or at least the way he "helps" the main characters, but Harry Connik Jr. gives a good performance and seems to be having a lot of fun.

This movie should not be missed just to see how two wonderful actresses can make such a movie stand out so much from the rest. (Except for the Silence of the Lambs and Se7en, which are better)
