An effective remake of an ineffective Hitchcock thriller.

This unscary thriller also suffers from dreadful miscasting, not the least of which is pairing Gwyneth Paltrow and Michael Douglas as the leads.

His [Davis] direction is swift and very effective, and the movie, shot in shades of ebony (the color of black marble), looks exceptionally handsome.

Somewhere, Alfred Hitchcock is yawning.

...there's nothing about this thriller to prevent it from soon becoming enmeshed in the memory with others in which Michael Douglas wears a starched collar and grits his teeth.

Paltrow, too, is generally a good actress but there is a paint-by-numbers quality to her work here.

As is the case with too many remakes, the slick new take falls short.

Andrew ("The Fugitive") Davis' film is less than perfect but it's a murderously fun way to spend a couple of hours in a darkened movie theater.
