An overstuffed, head-scratching paranoid thriller with shades of horror and sci-fi thrown in for sometimes confounding measure.

If only the writing measured up to the cinematography, the score, and the immense talent of its two leads.

Random creepy images grow tiresome after 80 or so minutes. Unmercifully, A CURE FOR WELLNESS has another sixty minutes to go, without a coherent thread or satisfying payoff. Or any payoff, really.

A Cure for Wellness is a utterly banal and ridiculous visual spectacle. [Full review in Spanish]

Verbinski's return to horror is a complete mess. With its impressive first half, A Cure for Wellness promises a lot, though in time it proves to be placebo with a ludicrous ending leaving no room for remedy.

For a film that makes its enigmas so paramount, it's strange to see [A Cure For Wellness] treat its audience so disdainfully.

In the end, Wellness has nothing to say...In its desperate attempt to shock, it's sick and twisted in all the wrong ways.

The cinematographer may have gotten some great material for his reel... for the rest of us, it is a two plus hour long waste of time.

A two and a half hour mess that needs to be cured.

The first half of the film sets up some nice intrigue at a pleasantly languid pace, but then the experience grows frustrating. The plot has more twists and turns than ... yes, an eel! And the more the story zigs and zags, the less sense it makes.

The problems lie in an excessively lengthy runtime resulting in repetition of scares before an utterly bizarre finale.

Gore Verbinski's A Cure For Wellness is weird, wordy and unforgivably long-winded.

I don't think I can recommend the film, but there are enough unique traits here that could satisfy curiosity seekers or completists.
