For anyone who likes to stoke adrenaline with anxiety, Copycat delivers the goods.
Copycat, despite two tough-babe leads to kill for, flies in more directions than scattered kitty litter.
The movie creates an atmosphere that is tense and rousing without descending into caustic nihilism.
[Gives] Weaver equal billing with everyone's favorite Southern spitfire, Holly Hunter. Teaming up these heavyweights is the genius notion of Copycat, a solid serial-killer thriller elevated by phenomenal acting. [Blu-ray]
It's not the kind of title that anyone would seek out, but it's a fine movie if you're just going to be watching a little TV.
A striking, consistently engaging thriller...
There are so many numbskull moves by almost every character, it becomes more of an exercise in frustration than an enjoyable viewing experience.
Great cast but too nasty-tempered to elevate it from its sordid serial killer roots.
Not -half-bad serial killer thriller. A great cast helps immeasurably.
Boasts fine performances by Hunter and Weaver, but it's the inept work of the villains that keeps it from really coming alive.
Entertaining -- for all the wrong reasons -- thriller,
Chilling serial killer thriller. You will never look at Harry Connick Jr the same way again.
Standard serial killer thriller with the hook of the killer especially targeting the academic whose specialty is serial killers. The leads, Weaver and Hunter, lift this into watchable territory. There will be echoes of Silence Of The Lambs, but at least this is a better than average knockoff.
Gripping serial killer thriller that was overshadowed by the release of Se7en a month earlier. Weaver is an agoraphobic psychologist that specialises in serial killers. Holly Hunter is a detective with three similar and unsolved murders on her hands. It soon becomes apparent that these murders are copycat killings. The film is a bit disjointed in its who-done-it first act, before just revealing the killer to the audience. The does eventually work out in the film's favor as it becomes more of a character piece. Patton is wonderful as a jealous ex-lover of Hunter, one that spars verbally with Mulroney, but soon becomes a tragic and sympathetic character. Connick Jr. does well in a batshit bonkers role. The acting and characters carry the movie, even if the material becomes stretched. It's predictable and surprising in equal measure, but contains wonderful moments, such as an unrelated shooting, which intrude on the main plot, but flesh out the characters. Didn't bore me once.
An ok thriller.
Ive seen this a fair few times and still think its brilliant!
I Think its clever stylish, different, and exciting with a great cast and great performances especially from Sigourney weaver!
It keep me glued to my seat and though it did get a bit predictable it was still and really enjoyable and great thriller movie that is completely different to any movie ive seen before !
Sigourney weaver plays an acraphobic where shes frighten to go outside because of a previous frightfull experience but she then starts getting haressed by a murderer who has now turned to hurt her, so whilst under protection she try's to find out who it is !
A really good movie exciting thrilling and enjoyable completely worth a watch!
