If you're really looking to be terrified, skip this film and rent Uptown Girls instead.

There was a point in the movie when suddenly everything clicked, and the Law of Economy of Characters began to apply. That is the law that says no actor is in a movie unless his character is necessary.

Movies about the psychological abuse of a child can be powerful when the subject matter is handled in a serious, sensitive manner. But when it is employed as a plot device to enable a surprise revelation, it becomes offensive.

The film's weakness lies in its transparency more than in its execution.
February 1, 2005
This barely even qualifies as a movie. It's an easily digested piece of commercial product, not unlike a loaf of bread or those pantyhose that come in an egg.

June 20, 2005
A lame showcase for DeNiro's monotonous blankness and the hysterics of Fanning.
Full Review | Original Score: D
February 2, 2005
An ordinary, mildly suspenseful, eventually preposterous thriller that warrants no more attention or thought than the time it takes to watch it, if that.
Full Review | Original Score: C
February 7, 2005
If it wasn't already the case, Robert De Niro's name on a project now means absolutely nothing.

Robert De Niro rises to a formidable challenge in this sufficiently unsettling thriller: he holds his own against the scene-swiping 10-year-old actress Dakota Fanning.

Seek ends with a whimper and not a bang, but at least it finally ends; sadly, this turns out to be the highlight of the experience.

Even though Hide and Seek's chilling tag phrase--"Come out, come out, wherever you are!"--may be enticing, just stay right where you are.

February 3, 2005
The movie follows a tired formula almost from the start. It's a long road, and we see every twist coming from miles away.

Robert De Niro is batting 0 for 2 with creepy thrillers.

Another movie in which rich white people who don't seem to have or need jobs move to a mansion in the country to be terrorized by a mysterious, faceless, evil.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

"Come out, come out, wherever you are" sounds hauntingly inviting. Still, one should take the contrary view and remain hidden from this perfunctory peek-a-boo picture

January 30, 2005
It is one thing for a movie to be boring and awful, but it is quite another to be insulting, in bad taste, and utterly ridiculous at the same time.
Full Review | Original Score: 0/4

This film is ultimately a waste of one's precious time.

Another wrongheaded, stilted and obvious thriller. Yawn...
