Rebecca Romijn's sexy performance will no doubt mercifully distract some viewers from the silly story, overblown melodrama, and general cheesiness.

Like a great bottle of low-cost wine, it's a sexy, silly, thrilling indulgence to satisfy your cravings.

...suspenseful and sensuous, exasperatingly preposterous, and almost every minute entertaining.

Wickedly funny, visually engrossing, never boring, this movie challenges us to think about the ways we consume pop culture.

What's so fun about this silly, outrageous, ingenious thriller is the director's talent. Watching a Brian DePalma movie is like watching an Alfred Hitchcock movie after drinking twelve beers.

A lovely, unapologetic rendering of all the stuff that makes De Palma films tick -- and great stylish fun to boot.

Zertinet Movies

But in a disastrous third act, "Femme Fatale's" more enjoyable moments are eviscerated by the film's final surprise. One monstrous twist too many and De Palma seems to apologize for his earlier, edgier decisions.

A movie as glossily silly -- and guiltily pleasurable -- as a waiting-room fashion magazine.

a tour de force of giddy-enthralling cinematic trashiness.

I found myself capitulating to its inspired formalist madness -- something I've resisted in [De Palma's] films for the past 30-odd years.

Jeremy Heilman

Perhaps more than any film he's made up to this point, [it] is DePalma's most humanistic defense of his body of work, but only a director with his unique obsessions and talents could make a statement of humanism that's so provocative, sexy, and exciting.

This is SO De Palma. If you love him, you'll like it. If you don't...well, skip to another review.

Whatever else it is or isn't, Femme Fatale is pure filmmaking of a kind we don't see much of these days. It's vintage De Palma and I, at least, am glad to have him back in form.
