The movie seems to have been made almost in spite of the efforts of all involved.

Twisted is so bad I'm embarrassed to have seen it and therefore am a bit ashamed to write even an unkind review.

Walks like a thriller and talks like a thriller, but it squawks like a turkey.

Twisted is just another example of a motion picture that will surprise and delight only those who see movies less frequently than they see their dentist.

Fifteen minutes into this movie, I figured out who the murderer was. That left me the rest of the movie to ponder why any of these people agreed to be in it.

Numbingly predictable, inept, and boring.

A complete jumble of a movie that could have a talking albino gnu wander into the last frame and not make any less sense

You've seen better mysteries on Murder She Wrote, you'll hear better dialogue in an Ed Wood flick, and you'll experience better sex scenes on a hot day at your local zoo.

Characters get distorted and motivations warped in this police thriller in order to keep bodies piling up and clues pointing in all directions.

This movie plays like they were reading [Roger Ebert's] little movie glossary and they took every cliche in there.

Some of the Judd-in-jeopardy movies have been diverting in a perfect-for- an-airplane-ride way, but Twisted is marred by goofy subplots, a Judd head of hair that goes from short to long to short and inane dialogue.

The problem with being asked to name the worst Hollywood thriller starring Ashley Judd is that you first have to be able to tell them apart.

Sarah Thorp's script is twisted in all the wrong ways.

Judd kicks a man in the crotch within four minutes of the film's beginning. I believe the purpose of all Ashley Judd movies is to allow her to kick a man in the crotch.

Twisted is rubbish, but it looks good enough, moves fast enough and does improve as it progresses, principally because its plot disintegrates to the point of outright comedy.

Twisted dies at almost the very moment it begins.

Judd, Samuel L. Jackson, Andy Garcia and David Strathairn all are wasted.

The only way you could stuff one more movie cop cliché into Twisted would be with a shoehorn and a sledgehammer.

...generic and hysterical hackwork...utterly tepid and inconsequential...an unoriginal and flavorless suspense piece that's shunning more than shocking
