  1. It's scary. It's well-acted. It's filmed with a degree of flash and elegance.
  2. A moderately diverting thriller that builds suspense and entertains effectively... strongest selling point is Charlize Theron.

    Aggressively stylish but dramatically flaccid.
  4. Could have been written by a computer programmed to cannibalize previous sci-fi films.
  5. 30
    This hypersleek film is surprisingly lax for its first half... The ending is dumb.

    One of the least endurable films of 1999.

    Actually, it could have been a classic thriller. It's not so bad if you think about it and watch it for a second time. It's not one of Depp's and Theron's best, but COME ON!! It's not bad. Expand

    I always bring this film this film up when talking to my wife about the worst film I have ever watched. No redeeming features at all. One of the few movies I have wanted to walk out on. Expand
