As generic as the title suggests, this routine psychological thriller about a yuppie shrink whose daughter is kidnapped can't be saved by Michael Douglas's screen presence.
| Original Score: 2/5
This could have been a pretty tight little thriller if it weren't for the gaping, bleeding plot bulletholes.
| Original Score: 3/5
Rarely rises above the status of conventional thriller.
| Original Score: 6/10
Fleder can only fling the camera about and indulge in some familiar screen sadism ... as he tries to squeeze a few thrills from material as desiccated as his leading man.
Michael Douglas has to use nearly every acting trick in his arsenal to distract us from a plot that's as flimsy and fragile as a house of cards.
O roteiro contém vários buracos colossais que tornam a trama ofensivamente inverossímil.
Dull and drab, with a lack of imagination
| Original Score: 1.5/4
As the film moves along, the action becomes more exaggerated, more coincidental, and more absurd, yet it never becomes any more exciting.
| Original Score: 4/10
Shhh don't say a word ... it's not that good.
Heaps of implausibilities inhabit the ridiculously twisty plot, and questions abound.
una opción disfrutable y válida...
A smart script and great casting elevate a pedestrian premise to the status of satisfying thriller.
Features inexplicable actions, dubious coincidences, and characters you'd happily murder yourself given half a chance.
| Original Score: 2/4
Plodding and lacking in logic.
| Original Score: C+
Starts off simple, gets unnecessarily complicated, ties itself into further knots.
Gary Fleder directs this thriller with panache making the most of interlocking elements of the drama.
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Gary Fleder's Don't Say a Word is one of the most complimentary films to hit the screens in years.
If only this workmanlike thriller were as much fun as mimicking Brittany Murphy's singsong delivery of the film's tagline.
Little more than wasted potential - a would-be thriller that could have been great fun, but instead is as appealing as a plate of cinematic leftovers.
| Original Score: 68/100
