[Director Andrew Douglas] is only partially successful at depicting its many twists and turns in convincing fashion. But it's compelling nonetheless, if only for the sheer bizarreness of the events depicted.

Andrew Douglas, who directed the 2005 "The Amityville Horror" remake, mishandles the standard noir as straightforward drama and gives it an unfortunate after-school-special vibe.

A compelling but ultimately unsatisfying film.

Walden's structurally elaborate script can't quite conjure the social and environmental detail necessary to make the belief-defying believable on a dramatic level.

If Spike Jonze's Her seeks to destigmatize and legitimize the existence of online relationships, Douglas's U Want Me 2 Kill Him? seeks to do the opposite.

Gripping, hypnotic and unassuming, Uwantme2KILLhim? takes its teen angst-ridden tendencies to a whole new deceptive level.

A slick, taut, reality-based little cyber-thriller that may be a mite dated in technological terms but still fascinates because of its sheer luridness.

It's effective, in its way, and the acting is excellent, across the board. But "U Want Me 2 Kill Him" side-steps the real fascination with the story, its real guts, which is: Why?

The bad news is that uwantme2killhim? is less engaging than the 2005 Vanity Fair article on which it's based. After the bizarre and sadly sordid details of the real-life story are smoothed away, what's left feels both familiar and simplistic.

Provocative, though it never builds to astonishing peaks of illness. Instead, it remains somewhat faithful to the crime, which is just crazy enough to keep the feature intriguing.

Even with its sloppy second act, the narrative picks up enough momentum to power it through to a creepy conclusion.

Too calculated for campy exploitation fun, the film settles instead for the dreariness of shocked revelation, a kind of onscreen tabloid journalism.

A true story is turned into an eerily relevant cyber-thriller that remains grounded in sympathetic characters rather than a formulaic movie plot.

British director Andrew Douglas (2005's Amityville Horror remake) takes a clever look at youthful naivete in this strikingly inventive thriller, which is based on a true story.

Engaging, well acted thriller that gains an extra chilling edge from the fact that it's based on a true story, though it's slightly let down by a questionable directorial decision.

The evils of the internet are unnervingly unearthed in this teen-oriented thriller.

Interesting material let down by the occasionally pedestrian direction.

Massively unlikely, but compelling to the last, it makes a decent fist of conveying the strength of internet attachments, even if filtering the unfolding drama through endless computer screens becomes a well-worn device.

This true story ... has been knit into a taut thriller by British director Andrew Douglas.
