Banderas should be in a real King adaptation, not a paraphrase of one.
A charmless, nonsensical thriller that doubles as a hack screenwriter's wet dream, filled to the brim with faux-insights that wouldn't impress even the most inattentive college freshmen.
Three stars! Well played! But wait, there's one more scene. Look children - it's a falling star.
Thanks to tight direction by Brian Goodman and lively performances from Antonio Banderas and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, the film's engaging even when it's ridiculous.
None of it is earth-shattering, but Goodman gives it muscle and makes it work.
Black Butterfly would've be a modest but effective thriller had its creative team not attempted to get too clever.
There's a lot of material here for a tidy little thriller, but Goodman and screenwriters Justin Stanley and Marc Frydman don't seem to know how to stick the landing.
Thanks to smart casting and fine use of chilly, damp mountain locations, this "B"-level thriller packs enough of a punch -- and has enough surprises up its sleeve -- to make it worth a look.
This would not be a thriller without revelations and the film has some good reveals, but the final surprise almost ruins the movie, because it feels like a "twist" for no particular reason.
'Black Butterfly' offers thrills and nerve-wracking excitement as well as strong performances by its excellent co-stars.
A riveting whodunit spoiled somewhat by a rabbit-out-of-the-hat resolution.
Black Butterfly [is] a strong, if still somewhat vexing, thriller I'm glad I took the time to watch.
If it could have cut out the last two to three of the seven or so endings, then I could maybe have seen Black Butterfly getting a bigger score. As it stands, I can get it to fresh by the skin of its teeth.
