Flies completely off of the rails, morphing from tantalizing trash to nowhere nonsense.

Brian De Palma returns in full style with his best movie since Scarface.

Rebecca Romijn's sexy performance will no doubt mercifully distract some viewers from the silly story, overblown melodrama, and general cheesiness.
| Original Score: 6.5/10

Like a great bottle of low-cost wine, it's a sexy, silly, thrilling indulgence to satisfy your cravings.

This script is as oblique as it is pretentious.

De Palma pulls his own switcheroo on the real story as it's about to reach its climax and replaces it with a fake one.

...suspenseful and sensuous, exasperatingly preposterous, and almost every minute entertaining.
| Original Score: 7/10

Wickedly funny, visually engrossing, never boring, this movie challenges us to think about the ways we consume pop culture.

So what was De Palma thinking...did the moviemaking mastermind behind such intriguing fare like Blow Out, Scareface, and the super-charged Mission: Impossible drink too much cough syrup to the point where it left him uncharacteristically disoriented?

Como obra de arte, este projeto falha grosseiramente (e vai despertar a revolta de muitos espectadores). Já como exercício cinematográfico, merece um pouco mais de atenção.

What's so fun about this silly, outrageous, ingenious thriller is the director's talent. Watching a Brian DePalma movie is like watching an Alfred Hitchcock movie after drinking twelve beers.

Emotionally and intellectually resonant.

A lovely, unapologetic rendering of all the stuff that makes De Palma films tick -- and great stylish fun to boot.

But in a disastrous third act, "Femme Fatale's" more enjoyable moments are eviscerated by the film's final surprise. One monstrous twist too many and De Palma seems to apologize for his earlier, edgier decisions.

This is a return to form for De Palma.

Not-so-nifty camera tricks did little to mask a downright lame script and the plot twists were crushingly heavy handed and unoriginal.
| Original Score: 2/5

There's no humour, no suspense, little drama, not much sex appeal and hardly any intrigue.

Even accepting this in the right frame of mind can only provide it with so much leniency.

A movie as glossily silly -- and guiltily pleasurable -- as a waiting-room fashion magazine.
