We actually don't see very much killing at all--except, maybe, that of the careers of Morrissey and Stone.

Silly, shock-pandering lines like that nearly sink the film to Showgirls level.

In spite of Sharon Stone's hearty encore performance as the ultimate femme fatale, "Basic Instinct 2" falls unbearably flat.

jedan od rijetkih primjera kada je publika pokazala kako, za razliku od Hollywooda, ipak ima pojma o nekim stvarima

Sadly, nothing following lives up to the prurient promise of this sequence, as the film becomes a monotonously talky, gloomy affair.

Poor Sharon Stone. She's still big; it's the erotic thrillers that got small.

...a script that is so full of cliche's that I actually knew the end of the film 10 minutes before it ended.

This is psychoanalytic fable rewritten as pulp fiction. Perhaps that's why it's so ludicrously entertaining.

As a stand-alone film, this doesn't work; but viewed through the prism of the original, it offers some twisted, self-conscious pleasures.

I won't say I didn't enjoy it; this is the kind of film that begs to be talked back to, that satisfies our highly developed taste for schadenfreude.
| Original Score: 69/100

Michael Caton-Jones directs with bland disinterest, but Stone hams it up with the campy relish of a drag queen doing Faye Dunaway in Mommie Dearest.

With her raunchy innuendo and near-parodic sexuality, Stone seems to be coming on as the Mae West of film noir.

You've been here before when it was fresher.

It's left to David Thewlis as a know-it-all cynical cop to walk away with the whole film. He brings a mischievousness and wit to a movie sorely lacking in both and offers a fine example of what this sequel should have been.

Everything about this movie is bad.

A veritable cold shower of a sequel to 1992's softcore spectacular.

Morrissey's performance is much better than the film really deserves - he pulls off a complex blend of pride and barely suppressed rage whilst still remaining sympathetic.

[A] garish, deliciously awful sequel.
