slick and twisted tale provides two delicious hours of intrigue and mystery, along with some unexpected wit and black comedy...

...a fast-paced thriller that probably will leave Alfred Hitchcock aficionados mourning its shallowness -- but not until after they've enjoyed an adrenaline rush.

What the film lacks is suspense, surprise (the new ending is a dud) and passion.

You don't have to believe a word of the strained dialogue in A Perfect Murder to be seduced by the movie's chilly high-gloss ambiance and its skillfully plotted update of Frederick Knott's play...

I think it works like a nasty little machine to keep us involved and disturbed; my attention never strayed, and one of the elements I liked was the way Paltrow's character isn't sentimentalized.

While the resolution may never be in doubt, how the film arrives there is a constant source of pleasure.

Loaded with dramatic irony in the first half and with tension in the second, the film gives Douglas another chance to do his slick, sinister best; Paltrow a chance to extend her emotional range; and Mortensen a chance to play the chameleon.

What Andrew Davis has essentially done is to take one three-star movie and turn it into another three-star movie.
