Critic Reviews for Zero Effect
There's an idiosyncratic talent at work here with the potential to blossom into bigger, better and more accomplished films.
Kasdan's is a very promising debut, its own dearth of feeling offset by able writing, engaging playing and a sure sense of pace.
Kasdan is onto something, but he needs to develop it. If he tries to bring Daryl Zero back for a sequel, maybe he'll have a better idea of what to do with his eccentric private eye.
Audience Reviews for Zero Effect
Starts off a little slow but once it gets going, it really goes. A thoroughly enjoyable experience.
A satisfactory entertainer in the veins of Sherlock Holmes.
Little seen gem, this sleeper phenom is simply a must watch. Pullman is at his best and the character he creates is simply wonderful to behold. Great performances. Excellent brain teaser. Funny. Intriguing. Watch this movie,...NOW.
