A shining example of greatness and one of the finest movies of the 90's; Basic Instinct is undoubtedly a masterpiece of the thriller genre.

great neo-noir thriller where the real villain never captured

Wow, this was kinda terrible. I had high expectations but it was basically just a ton of gratuitous sex scenes that were more awkward than anything else.

There is a lot of sex in this movie!

A suspended detective who falls in love with a mysterious blonde woman, while a nice brown loves him. Has to fight his past dark mistakes and sins in the sunny San Francisco. And this is not the Vertigo.

Basic Instinct continues to keep you on the edge of your seat. Thrilling and suspenseful, plus Sharon Stone is incredibly sensual. Michael Douglas is great in the lead as well.

Yes its trashy, filthy, and silly. Its easily the best B movie shlock ever made. The acting in this movie is so over the top, but fun to watch. Just like a train wreck like one critic said. It reminds me of the film noirs of the 40's. Blasphemy!

Basic Instinct is campy, schlock-cinema. I was embarrassed throughout the entire film. It's a film set in 1992, written like a cheap knockoff of an Edward G. Robinson 40's film noir, laced with f-bombs. If a throwback was the point, maybe they should've done a much better job. All this film had going for it, and precisely why it was a popular in the 90's was Sharon Stone's sex appeal. She's a beautiful woman, yes. She crossed her legs... OOOOOH HOW SCANDALOUS. Were people really this amused back then?

believe it or not, but this is the first time i've seen this movie; the only thing i knew about it was the iconic scene everyone talks about, and i'm not sure i really cared for it. didn't seem nearly as riskay as it's reputation holds it to be -- but it is 2017, not 1992. a lot can change in 25 years.

Of the better 90s thrillers that came out. Very well done and suspenseful. Very violent and sexual. Ending was predicable though. Worth a watch.

As a Douglas super-fan I am a little biased but this was great.

A hard core sexy movie.

An entertaining suspenseful movie with a few nice twists. Sharon Stone really carries this film.

People don't give this movie enough credit. Michael Douglas is a king, strong supporting cast, oh yea and Sharon Stone's beaver.

I really enjoyed this film in Blu Ray. This is the first time I have ever actually seen this after it being recommended. Gets you gripped. Great performances from Douglas and Stone. Worth having in your collection. Will watch the second soon and give this a re watch soon

Joe Ezsterhas was such a gloriously shitty writer

Sharon is sexy, started off very engaging, kinda slipped through. Nice ass, suppose she set everyone up

What softcore porn looks like on a Hollywood budget.
