City Pages, Minneapolis/St. Paul

De Palma continues perfecting his brilliant visual style within the most blatantly artificial plot scenarios.

TV Guide's Movie Guide

Brian De Palma's exercise in flashy paranoia and shallow cynicism comes out of the gate like gangbusters, but falls apart in a flurry of preposterous plotting.

Wispy threads of dramatic plausibility and character involvement unravel completely by the time of the incredibly silly final reel.

Film4

Aside from a sensational, continuous 20-minute opening take, and an amazing shot that literally swoops over the top of a row of hotel rooms, there's little of interest here.

Never loses its bearings as it hovers between preposterous paranoia and a Billy-Wilder-like moral fable about a deeply flawed hero who draws a line in the sand beyond which he cannot go.

Snake Eyes is about multiple perceptions of one major event, their relationship to each other and to the audience.

The first 20 minutes of Snake Eyes are among the most imaginative and energetic minutes of film I've seen in a while.

The film echoes the technical wizardry and complex plotting of De Palma's best film, Blow Out.

Chuck O'Leary
Fantastica Daily

A moderately suspenseful thriller that seems somewhat conventional compared to De Palma's earlier envelope-pushing efforts. Intriguing, but the mystery villain is rather obvious from the start.

Film Threat

Unfortunately, the material that De Palma chooses to hang his flair on feels like a paltry version of No Way Out as if penned by Crichton or Grisham.

I give De Palma and company credit for not succumbing to the usual bloat we see in big-budget Hollywood films.

The mundane plot of Snake Eyes is disguised with lots of camera razzle-dazzle.

Promises to be a masterpiece, only to succumb to Hollywood mediocrity -- just like its director.

A dazzling piece of entertainment -- a mystery so cleverly constructed you find yourself wanting to see it again before it's over.

DePalma, a director who chooses his projects carefully, has scored again.

The film that not only made me give up on Brian DePalma -- the man can't make a good movie anymore -- but it also made me doubt the judgement of Nicolas Cage and Gary Sinise.

It is a bravura display of acting from Mr. Cage, and equally dazzling work from director Brian De Palma.
