It goes off the rails, but in a way that's exciting and reinvigorating.

Trance is high-order, film noir nonsense that takes Boyle back to the thrillers he made at the start of his career with John Hodge (he wrote Trance, too), like Shallow Grave and Trainspotting, that were preoccupied with the grimy corners of the psyche.

Cinema Crazed

In the first half I was definitely invested in what was unfolding, but couldn't believe by the end that director Boyle could deliver something so ham fisted and clunky.

The muddled mental states of the characters (and that of the audience) are mirrored by the film's visual style, which oscillates between languorous dreamscapes and frenetic action sequences.

[Director Danny] Boyle has not only delivered a first-rate thriller, he has produced a film that should inspire healthy debate... both about its plotting and characters. In a world of disposable entertainment, it is a lasting piece of art.

The trance angle adds an interesting dimension to an otherwise routine crime caper flick.

Big Hollywood

Multi-layered and beautifully-filmed by Oscar winner Danny Boyle, this drama lets viewers into the world of art and hypnosis in a tale that should be talked about long after the credits roll.

It's a film that blurs several lines - including those between fantasy and reality, heroes and villains, and fact and fiction - and does so in a way that puts a fresh and compelling spin on contemporary film noir and heist pictures.

Fan The Fire

A complex, breakneck and stirring modern thriller, superb in both execution and conceptual ideas even if it is a little over-indulgent.

An occasionally frustrating and far-fetched psychological thriller with enough deceptive plot switchbacks and visual tricks for three movies.

At least the film looks great, but without much of a spark, 'Trance' can only make you sleepy - very sleepy.

The unpredictable journey through fluid and malleable concepts of reality and identity is consistently gripping.

Cinema em Cena

Aparentemente, Danny Boyle encontra-se encantado demais pelas possibilidades da lógica visual que criou para se incomodar com a (falta de) lógica da história que está contando.

Trance is an elaborate tease. Trance is more mindless than mind-bending.

The best we can say about this is that it's better than Guy Ritchie.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

Boyle's showboating has none of the impact of the film's most memorable image, a sudden full-length shot of Rosario Dawson, as bare as a Renaissance Venus. This is a startling example of cinema's original and unsurpassed special effect: the human figure.

Trance isn't the director's best by a long shot, but it's a perfectly serviceable thriller with all Boyle's trademark flourishes.

... a flashy time-killer, a hodgepodge of trompe l'oeil ruses that add up to your standard noir mystery, only tricked-out in the latest in digital effects.

Trance is a busy, glittering picture, but you never have much of a stake in the outlandish twists (unless you happen to take hypnotism very seriously).

Like any good thriller worth its weight in red herrings, Trance keeps the audience guessing for the vast majority of its running time.
