Critic Reviews for Mesmerized

All Critics (2)

Laughlin é um diretor de assustadora incompetência, o que só piora um filme cujo roteiro já não prometia muita coisa. O resultado é uma produção que embaraça seu elenco e que poderia ter custado a carreira de Jodie Foster.

4.5/10. What a huge disappointment! Great cast, expect so much more from Jodie Foster. Nicely produced but boring as hell.

Letter to Jodie Foster: Part II. Dear Jodie Foster. What the fuck was Mesmerized (aka My Letter to George, aka Shocked)? You had a perfect track record with me until today! That's ok. In the same way that I forgave Eliza Dushku for Soul Survivors, and Sarah Michelle Gellar for Harvard Man, I shall forgive you for this piece of dynamo turge. It wasn't that it was bad; it was just interminably boring. I almost wished that I'd been slipped that chloroform. Love from your 'shocked', but still loyal fan, Robert. PS. Fingers crossed for Nim's Island!
