slick and twisted tale provides two delicious hours of intrigue and mystery, along with some unexpected wit and black comedy...
December 8, 2002
...the film is so lacking in anything original that it is hardly worth recommending.

...a fast-paced thriller that probably will leave Alfred Hitchcock aficionados mourning its shallowness -- but not until after they've enjoyed an adrenaline rush.

A resolução não faz jus às duas primeiras horas de projeção.

None of the amusement gained in watching the performances, unfortunately, amounts to much, as the script, in a desperate attempt to lend action interest to the original, static, puzzle plot, compounds surprise turn after surprise turn.

What the film lacks is suspense, surprise (the new ending is a dud) and passion.

A Perfect Murder begins better than it ends, and the pleasures it offers turn out to be more of a transitory nature.

You don't have to believe a word of the strained dialogue in A Perfect Murder to be seduced by the movie's chilly high-gloss ambiance and its skillfully plotted update of Frederick Knott's play...

...A Perfect Murder has inexplicably managed to eliminate almost everything that was worthwhile about Dial M for Murder, leaving behind the nearly-unwatchable wreckage of a would-be '90s thriller.

I think it works like a nasty little machine to keep us involved and disturbed; my attention never strayed, and one of the elements I liked was the way Paltrow's character isn't sentimentalized.

Davis weaves a gorgeously lush film, charged with high tension, but the listless script renders his efforts alarmingly mundane.

...the story offers so many lapses in logic, so many plot holes and so much dialogue to howl for that there's plenty to talk about afterward.

While the resolution may never be in doubt, how the film arrives there is a constant source of pleasure.

Andrew Davis (of Fugitive fame) has created a new and improved version, with first-rate performances.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
January 1, 2000
A streamlined, high gloss, touch-tone remake of the lesser-Hitchcock classic. Harken ye back to the days of rotary dialing.

Loaded with dramatic irony in the first half and with tension in the second, the film gives Douglas another chance to do his slick, sinister best; Paltrow a chance to extend her emotional range; and Mortensen a chance to play the chameleon.

A thriller without much genuine suspense isn't much of a thriller even if the atmospherics are dead-on.

What Andrew Davis has essentially done is to take one three-star movie and turn it into another three-star movie.
