Unfairly dismissed on its original release, this really deserves to be better known: the ultimate example of bad-trip mainstream cinema.

Despite all the confusion, it's a simple case of the script being too ambitious. It may emulate a man experiencing flashbacks, but it doesn't help the audience.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Truly frightening and visually unique, this messy, challenging film is anchored by Tim Robbins' remarkable performance.

Lyne's giddying, unsettling direction conjures up moments of horrifying hallucinogenic power from the bad-trip hell of his protagonist.

Ambrose Bierce and Clive Barker decided to collaborate? Who knew?

Movie Eye

Although slightly convoluted and disjointed, Jacob's Ladder is a hypnotic psychological thriller that makes use of its fuzzy orientation. An exceptionally odd and captivating drama that will leave one scratching their head

| Original Score: 3/5

A slick, riveting, viscerally scary film about what in other hands would be a decidedly unsalable subject, namely death.

Some of the most disturbing things you've ever seen in a horror film . . . should you have a problem with sleeping too well at night, try watching this movie a few times

Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)

Pretentious tripe from Adrian Lyne with a plotline not unlike the 'surprise' of The Sixth Sense.

| Original Score: 2/5

Flipside Movie Emporium

An absorbing mindblender cut short by a tacked-on political ending that tries to assign meaning to it all.

| Original Score: 3/5

Good premise undercut by too much last-minute editing
