A dim reworking of Fatal Attraction, directed with anonymous efficiency.
May 29, 2009
It's execrable; a fist-chewing embarrassment that has no right to a theatrical release.
May 29, 2009
Idris Elba, so good in The Wire, looks a long way from Baltimore in this overcooked Fatal Attraction-style yarn about a cocksure executive laid low by the office temp.
May 29, 2009
It could be the least erotic thriller ever made, unless die-you-bitch catfights through broken attic floorboards constitute some sort of kinky subgenre.
May 29, 2009
The best ladies' final to be seen this side of the French Open.
May 29, 2009
Bunny boilers ahoy. This lame and laughable stalker-thriller makes Fatal Attraction look thoughtful.
May 4, 2009
A silly, contrived film.
May 4, 2009
Elba and Larter are actually pretty good. Beyonce, through, strikes one note throughout.
May 1, 2009
Obsessed delivers in its limited way, as the audience audibly responds to the characters' choices and actions, even though we know exactly what to expect.
April 27, 2009
As far as the crazy-stalker-chick genre goes, Obsessed isn't horrible. It's just intensely simple-minded.
April 27, 2009
Spends much time spinning its wheels and making auds practically beg for an explanation to all the madness and obsession.
April 27, 2009
If the producers had done their work properly on Obsessed, I would not now be wishing I could reclaim the two hours I wasted on this tepid, sexless, thrill-free melodrama.
April 27, 2009
Great-looking actors, glossy locations and a knock-down, drag-out girlfight still don't make Obsessed anything more than a predictable and tawdry Fatal Attraction-style guilty pleasure.
April 27, 2009
Obsessed takes far too long to get cooking, and it works so hard at not being exploitation that it loses sight of its reasons for existing in the first place.
April 27, 2009
One doesn't expect a movie of this type to be plausible, but this one stretches the plausibility factor past the snapping point to the unintentional-laughter point.
April 27, 2009
Obsessed, is short on dimension and subtlety, but it turns into a mess believable enough to keep us invested.
April 27, 2009
Until Beyonce and Ali Larter duke it out at the climax, this is one dull film.
April 27, 2009
Obsessed is a safe, dull morality play. The most that can be said on its behalf is that, unlike Fatal Attraction, no bunnies were boiled in the picture.
April 27, 2009
Obsessed dutifully revises the 'blank from hell' genre which gave the world ridiculous, misogynist thrillers in the mid-1980s and early 1990s.
