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.

Revealing mistake: When Hobbes is searching for information about Milano, he types his search into the webcrawler search engine and it takes him straight to the front page of the newspaper that is reporting on the events he is searching for. With the search terms he used there is no way he would get that result. You may argue that all the boring bits of websearching were cut, but for his second search he goes back to the web search instead of the newspaper's own search to get the next year's article.
