Critic Reviews

Consensus: Despite its promising pedigree and a titillating premise, Chloe ultimately fails to deliver the heat -- or the thrills -- expected of a sexual thriller.
  • Many intriguing psychological crosscurrents roil this scenario, but Egoyan too often lapses into a soft-core dreamland. The film somehow manages to be both a turn-on and a turnoff. More...
  • The story is the problem here, devolving into a ridiculous situation that produces far more groans than chills or thrills. More...
  • I enjoyed because the actors don't camp it. More...
  • Egoyan is an expert at isolating people, but he's less sure of himself when it comes to how they connect. So what happens to the character of Chloe is the worst kind of surprise, the "Huh?" that throws you fatally out of the movie. More...
  • The only Verhoeven element that's missing is deliberate camp, a healthy ladling of which might have made Chloe worth watching for some reason other than the prospect of glimpsing Seyfried's and Moore's admirably formed torsos. More...
  • This is a high-toned erotic thriller, handled with style and some emotionally raw scenes, aiming for an effect that's pleasingly unnerving, if not outright arousing. More...
  • As it slides wearily into worn-out sex thriller conventions, Chloe becomes tedious and mechanical. When it's over, you're left feeling kind of cheap. More...
  • Atom Egoyan gets the erotic stuff right but pretty much drops the thriller part on its head. More...
  • It's a "Fatal Attraction" wannabe with some admittedly erotic scenes--but the script is from the "Basic Instinct 2" playbook. More...
  • Chloe descends into a preposterous third act that, by any measure, qualifies as a disaster. But it's proof of Egoyan's skill that the film works for as long as it does. More...

  • Chloe is one of those films that is hard to review without revealing too much of the plot. Atom Egoyan has adapted a foreign film, and for my taste,...
  • Atom Egoyan's remake of French sex puzzle Nathalie, the ending is so disappointing it dilutes the fine lead-up work of the two female leads -...
  • A woman who suspects her husband of having an affair hires a hooker to seduce him. Sometimes I'm asked why I hate a certain actor or actress, and now,...
  • Utter and complete crap. Not worth the time to watch it.
  • Weird in all senses of the word. Disturbing, creepy and scary. Yet you couldn't help but be intrigued and the film was without a doubt extremely good...
  • Oh boy, another 'sexy movie' with a BIG twist at the end, where the sexy person is actually psycho. Add this one to the other 5000000000
  • Chloe is a twisted sexual thriller that focuses on the importance of trust in loved ones and the power of persuasion. The plot becomes very involving...
  • Most of the visionary intellectuals would find this movie as some sort of magnificent creation by Atom Egoyan, but it failed miserably in leaving a...
  • Underperforming on all cylinders, Chloe might have satisfied audiences fifteen years ago, but now it feels like Atom Egoyan told two highly talented...
  • Director Atom Egoyan, working simply as a director, brings some serious heat to this somewhat lurid and Euro trashy art house potboiler. Egoyan gives...
