Obsessed (2009)

TOMATOMETER

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.

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.

Apr 27, 2009 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

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.

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 you will end up with something like 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.

Cast: Beyoncé Knowles, Idris Elba, Ali Larter, Christine Lahti, Bruce McGill, Scout Taylor-Compton, Ron Roggé, Jerry O'Connell, Richard Ruccolo, Dana Cuomo, Candice Cunningham Director: Steve Shill Summary: Derek Charles (Idris Elba) seems to have it all -- including the perfect job and the perfect wife (Beyoncé Knowles). But his charmed life takes on an ugly tarnish when sexy office worker Lisa Sheridan (Ali Larter) sets out to seduce and destroy him. Now, it's much more than a dangerous liaison; it's a full-blown occupational hazard. My Thoughts: "Simply, it was bad. Bad everything. Directing, plot, acting, and even the fight scene was bad. Beyonce really needs to work on her facial expressions. During the fight scene her face made it hard for me not to laugh. She looked a bit constipated. The story is predictable and a little boring. Even the scary suspense music was awful. The film was just trying too hard to be something more then what it was."
