Thriller • R • 1981 • 1 hr 48 min
Travolta gives a good performance in what is ultimately a hit and miss script.
Cinematography, acting, story, wit, it’s all there. Truly a Thriller as well. On a technical level, one of the best to do it.
Good movie and excellent story concept.
This is how you make a thriller. Also, I don’t think Travolta has come close to being as good as he is in this. Greatness.
Fantastic Brian De Palma thriller, one of his best, incredibly tense, engaging from start to finish
They don't make original mistery thrillers like this anymore. There's always something happening, different POV, and superb sound design.
The ending is perfect, this is an obvious masterpiece from beginning to end. Almost any Brian De Palma movie is worth your time.
Insanely interesting, just a well told, beautifully made movie. An absolute blast
Good story but the film score is a bit overpowering.
Pulpy but effective update of a classic. Great, kinetic cinematography. Overbearing, melodramatic score detracts.
