(I) (2004)

Critic Reviews



Based on 34 critic reviews provided by Metacritic.com
Twisted is an unusual forensic crime film because it's witty and sophisticated as well as taut and creepy.
Philadelphia Inquirer
By Twisted's final twist, though, it's all Judd can do to keep a straight face.
Chicago Tribune
A neo-noir movie nightmare gone sadly wrong.
Miami Herald
Twisted is a movie so derivative it's hard to pinpoint exactly how many other thrillers it poaches from.
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
It's always rather sad to watch gifted performers stranded in a tepid thriller. You can see them, as professional pretenders, trying to believe that they're creating a character, but the lie is transparent -- all they're really doing is advancing a retarded plot.
This is by far Kaufman's worst outing since becoming a major filmmaker more than a quarter-century ago, and the fact that his only other stinker from this period is 1993's "Rising Sun" means that maybe he ought to stay away from cop melodramas.
New York Daily News
It's an old maxim that you can't make a good movie from a bad script. But with the suspense thriller Twisted, Philip Kaufman shows that you can make one that looks like it should be good.
Chicago Sun-Times
Walks like a thriller and talks like a thriller, but it squawks like a turkey.
The Hollywood Reporter
Combining the ludicrous with the lurid, Twisted is twisted all right.
Entertainment Weekly
A pretty lousy movie, which would be offensive were it not safely neutered by its own stupidity.
San Francisco Chronicle
Not surprisingly, only Samuel L. Jackson seems fully to understand that he's in a bad movie, and he makes a virtue of it, using it as an excuse to hang loose, overact and ride the scenes for wherever they might go.
