The real shame about Psycho is that there are glimmers of the very smart satire that could've been.

When not bludgeoning a business rival with an ax, well-heeled killer Patrick Bateman bludgeons the audience with the film's messages.

A wimpy horror movie that could have been so much better.

The film left me with an empty feeling...

As it nears a conclusion, the picture becomes almost as empty as the title character.

...a dark satire, a black comedy, and a slick slasher rolled into one.

I wish I hadn't seen it.

As the antihero himself sneers at the bloody finale, 'This confession has meant nothing.' It's a form of poetic justice that American Psycho would be impaled on its own point.
January 1, 2000
Well-filmed, well-acted and certainly riveting, American Psycho nonetheless is a movie without heart about a man without heart.

All we get is a second-rate nightmare.

Harron can't find an angle, therefore a reason, to have made a film of this book -- beyond the simple fact that she could.

Much of American Psycho feels like déjà vu.

It's hard to summon up enthusiasm for a performance so rooted in bloody banality. I mean, as Patrick, Bale's most emotionally pressing dilemma is: Chainsaw or butcher knife?
January 1, 2000
American Psycho is seamless in its inability to engage emotionally, message or no message.
August 1, 2003
Despite a game performance from Christian Bale, American Psycho never quite achieves lift-off.

Those looking for an exploration of what makes an American Psycho tick are bound to be disappointed, as are those looking for a good scary film.

Decidedly out of date.

Are you, more or less, setting yourself up for disappointment if you go to see a film adaptation of one of the most powerfully written novels you can recall reading?

The problem, again, is the book, an insurmountable obstacle. If Harron and Turner had set out to make a real movie on these themes, they would never have started from a script like this.
