Basic Instinct 2 Reviews

This is psychoanalytic fable rewritten as pulp fiction. Perhaps that's why it's so ludicrously entertaining.
June 24, 2006
As a stand-alone film, this doesn't work; but viewed through the prism of the original, it offers some twisted, self-conscious pleasures.

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.

[This] is one of those guilty pleasures that, in your heart, you know you should loath but can't help being amused by the kitschiness of the writing, acting and direction

This movie rocks ... by boldly embracing the preposterousness at the core of its story right away, and then moving on to more important things like ultra-nasty sex [and] hyper-lurid dialogue.

Basic Instinct 2 isn't quite the spurting geyser of sexual excess that the original was, but it has a sense of reservation and a rather graceful desire for worth that makes it an acceptable distraction.

It's the sort of movie some people call a guilty pleasure, although I don't see any reason to feel guilty about a movie that is so much fun.

Basic Instinct 2 isn't bad, exactly, but it lacks the entertaining vulgarity of the first film.

Spatting one-liners and sucking on cigarettes, the vampy, campy Sharon Stone does Bette Davis proud in this reasonably fun but ultimately empty suspense/thriller. Proceed at your own risk!

Okay, it's awful. But I liked it. Stone "acts" (if you want to call it that) with a campy sneer as Morrissey heroically carries the movie. Rampling is a goddess.

There are plot developments occurring throughout the picture that have the subtlety of a carnival sideshow, and things never add up sufficiently as an intellectual exercise.

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.
January 27, 2007
Poor Sharon Stone. She's still big; it's the erotic thrillers that got small.

December 13, 2006
...a script that is so full of cliche's that I actually knew the end of the film 10 minutes before it ended.
