    The movie is not intended to be subtle. It is sweaty, candle-lit melodrama, joyously trashy, and its photography wallows in sumptuous decadence.

    Lavish and florid, the corny venture falls into so-bad-it's-good territory.
  3. The lead performances are very strong -- few actors possess as much sheer physical presence as this pair -- but their dialogue is stilted, as though lost in transit from a Victorian hothouse.
  4. It's too labored and ponderous to qualify as a so-bad-it's-good amusement. Original Sin is merely an old-fashioned bore.

    Even the lovemaking scenes between two of Hollywood's most attractive stars -- often shot from above, like Cinemax soft porn -- are so unerotic, they make your skin crawl.
  6. About half a notch above disaster.

    This is a great movie from beginning to end. At any time I did not know what would happen in the next scene. It is welll written, well This is a great movie from beginning to end. At any time I did not know what would happen in the next scene. It is welll written, well directed, well acted, and the choice of actors was great. I am surprised there are many negative reviews. It seems to be a movie that either you love it or you hate it. Even the citics are in the two extremes. If you like Angelina Jolie and Antonio Banderas you will like this movie. Also, don't see the trailer before you watch the movie. Expand

    The movie looks very cheap and decadent, but its melodramatic, soapish development makes it trashy fun. Besides, the sex scenes are hot.
