Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: [It's] meant to have a whiff of the philosophical, even if its intellectual ambition seems mostly limited to spelling affectations. – Janet Maslin, New York Times, Dec 18, 2009

Fresh: Jennifer Jason Leigh is an ideal Cronenberg heroine, projecting a personality that is smart, wary and capable of obsessiveness. – Kevin Thomas, Los Angeles Times, Dec 18, 2009

Fresh: It's a pleasure to find the brooding Cronenberg turning out a trifle, even if it's a dark trifle. – Craig Seligman,, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: This darkly sexual sci-fi horror variant by Cronenberg makes The Matrix look like child's play. – Bob Graham, San Francisco Chronicle, Dec 18, 2009

Its alright

I love cronenburg and even the flesh films like Videodrome but this movie was a disappointment. It might have been the scripting but I think my problem was with Jennifer Leigh. I think….I think I don't like her. Something about her voice, her face, her persona. I don't like it. It's very uncomfortable to me.

The movie also seemed very lazily put together. Great concept, just poorly executed.

love it

One of my favorite movies. Low budget, creative, surreal, dream-like absurdity. It's not for everyone, but it is definitely a cult classic in my opinion, and my opinion rules. :)

SCANNERS please!?

Can we have SCANNERS please. The greatest movie of all time.
