    Too easy to predict. Keanu Reaves cannot play a bad guy, he doesn't scare me.

    An extremely entertaining cat&mouse thriller that will have you guessing at every turn.

    This was actually better then most critics rated it- Keanu Reeves does better playing a bad guy -his best role is in THE GIFT. Of course the plot is not very believable, but that is true for most thrillers-pretty enjoyable if you turn off your brain.

    Too predictable story. Same old serial killer thing. I hated the tricky camera effects.

    Holy crap this is one of the most predictable, boring and dumb movies i've ever seen.

    This movie was okay. It got 28 reviews from critics. Critics are like weathermen. They're almost always wrong.

    A dismal new serial-killer thing.

    An uninspired, standard-issue mimeo whose only distinguishing feature is a reversal in its casting.

    What distinguishes The Watcher from all the films it consciously or unconsciously emulates is the intermittently witty, offbeat writing of debuting screenwriter David Elliot.
