Critic Reviews for Obsessed
Fans of the Final Destination flicks should enjoy seeing how Larter's horror roots are revisited in the over-the-top climax of this trashy exercise in glossy B-movie-making.
Elba grimaces, Larter is seductive, and Beyonce says, 'You better do something about this woman, or I will.' That better be enough because that's all this one's got to offer.
"I knew it would come to this," hisses Sharon when finding Lisa lurking around her beautiful Brentwood home--at which point I exclaimed, "Me too!"--and then the fun (and, for many, the entire purpose of the film) starts.
Another movie that demonstrates it's bad feng shui to place a glass coffee table beneath a chandelier beneath an attic that can't even support the weight of a blond wearing little more than the whipped-cream bikini she sported in 'Varsity Blues.'
Audience Reviews for Obsessed
Just take the basics of movies like Fatal Attraction, Swimfan, Notes on a Scandal, even The Cable Guy, mix them all up together, then spice it up with Beyoncé giving a major badass attitude and what you will have is this mediocre little thriller.
Who wouldlike this crap, its so boring and stupid, i being generous with 2 stars, a bad movie.
The ending was predictable, as they always are in these types of films. Although, must admit that it kept me on the edge of my seat towards the end and Ali Larter played a fantastic physcopath, loved her perfomance and Beyonce wasn't as bad of an actress as I thought she would be.
