Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: Kutcher is the wrong actor to anchor a psychological freak-out.
Rotten: Nothing can save this repetitive bore. Dude, where's your memory?
Rotten: It's one of the most unpleasant Hollywood films in some time.
Rotten: Not one second of this bilge makes a lick of sense.
Great Great Movie
This movie is hands down amazing, Ashton's best performance by far. There are so many shocking scenes in this movie and the story line is brilliant. But please do not watch the directors cut because it kinda ruins the movie, it has extra flashbacks and a different ending (all of which ruin the movie). So yeah, enjoy this amazing movie. And remember watch the theatrical version NOT the directors cut.
The director's cut is soooo much better than this crap....
I can't believe how different this version is from the director's cut. The director's cut is worth four stars - It's more compelling, has a genius ending, and treats you like you have half a brain instead of just regurgitating bad hollywood formula. Trust me - the released version really is sub par comparatively. So don't see it - see the director's cut!
