The actors are splendid, especially Sarah Polley and Sean Penn, but we never feel confident that these two plots fit together, belong together, or work together.

Bigelow is so intent upon making a non-exploitative movie that she de-sensationalizes the film to the point where it loses all energy.

The superior plotline isn't quite enough to drag along the dead (water) weight of the other.

Weaves a spell over you, with its disturbingly close-up look at damaged psyches and its subtle undercurrents of danger. But its awkward structure keeps breaking the spell.

No matter how deep her hurt, Jean and her insecurities make for an impoverished counterpoint to the tragedy of a woman imprisoned by history as well as by madness.

Bigelow offers some flashy twists and turns that occasionally fortify this turgid fable. But for the most part, The Weight of Water comes off as a two-way time-switching myopic mystery that stalls in its lackluster gear of emotional blandness.

Despite an impressive roster of stars and direction from Kathryn Bigelow, The Weight of Water is oppressively heavy.

From the diary of Kathryn Bigelow - "Maybe this whole project was some subconscious effort to take shots at the jackasses in my life."

It doesn't surprise me that this film sat for two years in storage before released, as the final version appeared clunky.

Nem as ótimas performances de Sarah Polley e Sean Penn conseguem conferir energia a este filme, cujas histórias desenvolvidas paralelamente se anulam de forma implacável.

Lovingly detailed but unaccountably clumsy, obviously ambitious, and unfortunately chintzy.

When the movie finally collapses on itself late in the game, it leaves you in the frustrating position of having to pick up its scattered pieces and assemble them as best you can.

A boring, pretentious muddle that uses a sensational, real-life 19th-Century crime as a metaphor for -- well, I'm not exactly sure what -- and has all the dramatic weight of a raindrop.

It's got a good director. Good cast. Good source material. Yet it still sinks like a stone.

The Weight of Water uses water as a metaphor for subconscious desire, but this leaky script barely stays afloat.

It's a 100-year old mystery that is constantly being interrupted by Elizabeth Hurley in a bathing suit.

The film might appeal to those who've already read the book, but it's unlikely those who haven't will find much of anything to enjoy here.

Makes its belated arrival sporting the bloated, pruny appearance of something that's been floating aimlessly for longer than anybody cares to remember.
