Obsessed (2009)



Critic Consensus: The inevitable Fatal Attraction comparisons aside, Obsessed is a generic, toothless thriller both instantly predictable and instantly forgettable.

A silly, contrived film.

Elba and Larter are actually pretty good. Beyonce, through, strikes one note throughout.

As far as the crazy-stalker-chick genre goes, Obsessed isn't horrible. It's just intensely simple-minded.

Spends much time spinning its wheels and making auds practically beg for an explanation to all the madness and obsession.

Audience Reviews for Obsessed


Just take the basics of movies like Fatal Attraction, Swimfan, Notes on a Scandal, even The Cable Guy, mix them all up together, then spice it up with Beyoncé giving a major badass attitude and what you will end up with is this mediocre little thriller.

The ending was predictable, as they always are in these types of films. Although, must admit that it kept me on the edge of my seat towards the end and Ali Larter played a fantastic physcopath, loved her perfomance and Beyonce wasn't as bad of an actress as I thought she would be.
