All Critics (8)

A talented cast wasted beneath the muddled script.

Cinema Crazed

Rosen isn't quite clever enough as either a writer or a director to pull off the multiple twists 'Curve' finally takes. The satiric edge and much of the movie's logic disappear in its last 20 minutes.

Rare that you'll see this many moronic plot twists in just one movie.

Full Review… | January 1, 2000

So concerned about its plot that it doesn't pay much attention at all to its characters, and therefore, the film only comes off feeling even more empty-headed.

Audience Reviews for Dead Man's Curve

This thriller had me really enjoying it - if you can get past the silly premise, the set up of the crime and the initial twist was fairly gripping. The acting is above average, and I always enjoy seeing Dana Delaney in a movie regardless of how big the role. After building up a good head of steam, all heck broke loose at the end and what seemed to be a well crafted story veered into absurdity. Good enough to watch, but not as good as it could have been.

I think I'm rating this a little higher than it actually deserves, but I enjoy Matthew Lillard's performance in it and can overlook the maybe one too many plot-twists that it throws at the audience just because it's a bit of 90's nostalgia that I recall from the VHS days. I like it, but it's probably a rental for most.

I saw this movie in the "free movies" section On Demand and decided to check it out! I actually ended up liking it. Movies from the 1990's make me laugh and this did too. Point is that this kept me intertained for 2 hours. My Reccomendation: its alright, and ok for free :)
