Amazing
31 October 2003 | by See all my reviews

I don't know why I loved this movie more...the blatant seduction, the beautiful cinematography or John Malkovich's performance, but one way or another this movie took me completely away. I've always loved the Jekyll and Hyde story - lifelong fan of those older tales - and this has to be the best version I've ever seen. Yes, it got lots of trashing. Why? No idea. The script is a bit melodramatic in parts and Julia Roberts does not exactly blow one away, but those two little issues aside, it really captured me as a film (and believe me, I've seen many). As the twisted schizo, Malkovich truly delivered. Hands down it's one of my favorite of his performances. He was so different from Jekyll to Hyde; I really appreciate people who can do that. Definitely see this movie, it's very worth it. Very well done.
