Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: It remains the most structurally elegant and sneakily playful of thrillers!
Rotten: Contains nothing to outrage or offend partisans of the original, yet neither does it stand to add much to their appreciation.
Rotten: The movie lacks the chutzpah to even be a travesty.
Rotten: Van Sant has cranked up the realism about 20 points, but somehow what he achieves for the effort is a larger sense of banality!
Everyone- see the Hitchcock original. It's much better. This still wouldn't have been a good movie even if it wasn't a remake of a classic and didn't have such big shoes to fill.
Watch the original!
Good, but not
Psycho 1960 is better than this one, everybody prefers a the better & a Hitchcock film. So just rent this, buy or watch the original instead!!
