Writer Joe Eszterhas's follow-up to his Showgirls fiasco is every bit as hopeless, and this time he takes some good actors down with him.

Car-chase aficionados are advised not to miss out on Jade, but others can safely give it a pass.

It's a good, solid thriller with some terrific touches by Friedkin and some truly bizarre ones by Eszterhas.

An Erotic Thriller that's as unsexy as it is unthrilling

A fairly suspenseful and entertaining thriller.

FilmsInReview.com

A monotonous and misguided sexual thriller that certainly doesn't cater to the typical Friedkin vibes. And Caruso left his top-rated critically-acclaimed ABC-TV cop show for this?

A high point of the show, even if it does go on a bit too long, is one great car chase scene.

Audience Reviews for Jade

½

Decent thriller that could have been much better if the script would have been better fleshed out, Jade is one of those films which has good ideas and plenty of potential in being a good film, but it never becomes anything truly riveting or memorable. Jade could have been quite good if the film's script would have been better though out, and it's a shame that this is such a tiresome, lazy affair. The cast are fairly ridiculous in their roles and in turn, it doesn't do much to make this film really standout. Jade plays out like a low budget film and it has that feel to it as well. If you're looking for something good here, then you'll be disappointed as the film never becomes anything truly entertaining. Overall it is amusing, but it could have been much better as well, and leaves a lot to be desired in terms of good storytelling. The Exorcist director William Friedkin directs and he makes one of his least accessible works here. Jade is amusing at best for its camp value and to me it felt like a cheap wanabe Basic Instinct film, but it failed due to a lack of original ideas and good performances. If you enjoy low budget affairs, then Jade is worth seeing, but even then don't go into this one expecting a highly entertaining film, it's one of those films that tries to be something great, but never gets there due to too many script limitations. Jade is worth seeing only once and doesn't demand multiple viewing due to its sheer ridiculous acting and lack of immersive storytelling.

i always harbor an oddball appreciation for the pulp b-movies, especially when they mesh all those classic stereotypes in an awesomely campy manner which is so bold it's almost "epic fail"...jade is one of the cases. most of all, the scriptor joe ezsterhas, also the writer of basic instinct, is the sleazy genius behind the whole picture. it toys with some of the formuli formed in basic instinct: highly educated intelligent but sexually corrupted sexy women of upper class who happens to be a shrink, the uncompromised hard-boiled detective who is more than anxious to set the justice right even thru pervert voyeurism, and priviledged aristocratic men with masochistic preference for the dominatrix-type woman, who gains her pleasure of sex through extreme hard-core acts like bondage and role-playings. and they happen again in SAN FRANSISCO! and ezsterhas adds the morally corrupted lawyer-womanizer into the picture to savour up the delicious rot of jade. in this time, linda fiorention is his fetishized seductive murderess whose super-cunt literally owns the movie!

here are all the fun facts. first of all, the name title jade has a exotic undertone, jade is a dominatrix whore who takes an oriental name to entice her men-prey. and among the remains of the victim, pubic hair is stored within a elegant box made of silver, inscribed with a chinese character of jade. second of all, some of the scenes are deliberately arranged within some chinese festival in frisco's china-town to give the picture an other-worldly feeling, and some of oriental decorations are used as the adorments in those secret rooms for the purpose of illicit sex. (in the script, it's called THE FUCK HOUSE.) if you read raymond chandler's the big sleep, chandler seems to favor associating the oriental exotica with sexual perversions. (bisexuality and promiscuity...the world of pagans always has an aura of emanicipation from puritanical abstinence, to the westerners)...now we witness the modern homage to the metaphors of vintage stereotypes. third of all, one of those most interesting dialogue in the movie is a naked woman in solitude, leaving some desperate message in his answering machine while the man is about to engage in a sexual dalliance with his adulteress: "i'm reaching hysterical blindness, you better be careful, i might give in to one of those uncontrollable urges," which is repeated in the end of the movie by the man as the real murderer is exposed.

david caruso from csi crime scene is still quite dreary as ever while chazz palminteri still remains as the fantastically sleazy typecast of the nasty power-obsessed slick man in b-noir flicks. (king of sleaze!) how about linda florentino? all i could say is that i never knew she was that super-sexy back in the good old 1990s while her husky voice spells out like "i dare you to do me" manifesto which fulfills every frame of picture. and those demure-lady garments seem particularly obscene while you envision all those wild crazy things are done under those conservative customes.

jade is a b-movie-cult homage to noir, just like basic instinct, which is redeemed into a flick due to its strong production backset (which means..they just used all those top-class director, actors and cinematographers,,to make a b-movie), but jade also adapts the chiaroscuro technique to render protagonist's mental states, for example, woman on bed, the dichotomy of light and shadow appears on her face to symbolize something dark is looming within the woman's mind. jade might be a messily, loosely made b-movie, but it's definitely far from boring!

(at least, better than show-girl, another ezsterhas' campy cheer of sleaze.)
