Critic Reviews for Bad Influence
Lowe's surface performance is distracting and eliminates much of the suspense necessary to keep this sort of grasping Hitchcock wannabe afloat.
...improves substantially once Alex drops his charming facade and becomes a flat-out villain...
An overlooked classic satire/thriller
The production values give a sense that the movie was quickly and haphazardly put together.
Features Rob Lowe at his most creepy
Lowe and Spader deliver some great work in this fairly familiar, yet still enjoyable, thriller.
Audience Reviews for Bad Influence
Good thriller. Makes you think twice about making a new friend!
a down hill point in Rob Lowe,
Awesome movie. There's a nice buildup of Lowe's character Alex. It makes Alex seem like a great guy after he stands up for Michael, and they have a nice friendship together, until the relationship slowly spirals into an out of control life or death situation. The pacing of this movie is perfect; not too fast and not too slow. There aren't any boring parts either, which I'm very thankful for. Nothing worse than watching a boring movie. Both characters are likable (at least until Lowe's true character is established), and they both have qualities that make them seem like real individuals. The development of Spader's character was great. I like seeing a character evolve into a completely different one by the end of a movie. It was a slow transition from shy/passive office worker to aggressive/violent gunman, but it worked. It was awesome. It was a very cool movie to watch.
