More powerful than most give it credit for, and if this was your first time seeing Jeremy Renner, the quiet intensity of his performance is a massive part of that power.

August 8, 2004
A little too boring, when you think about the subject.
August 11, 2003
Worth a look, if only for Renner's complex performance.
February 19, 2003
January 22, 2003
A story which fails to rise above its disgusting source material.
January 8, 2003
A chilling movie without oppressive gore.

Renner?s face is chillingly unemotive, yet he communicates a great deal in his performance. See it for his performance if nothing else.
November 29, 2002
Director David Jacobson gives Dahmer a consideration that the murderer never game his victims.
November 24, 2002
Does what should seem impossible: it makes serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer boring.
November 17, 2002
Renner carries much of the film with a creepy and dead-on performance.
October 18, 2002
Since Dahmer resorts to standard slasher flick thrills when it should be most in the mind of the killer, it misses a major opportunity to be truly revelatory about his psyche.
September 9, 2002
It's not that "Dahmer" was a bad film, which it certainly wasn't, but it was a pointless one that was more unsettling than informative or penetrating.
September 6, 2002
Writer-director David Jacobson and his star, Jeremy Renner, have made a remarkable film that explores the monster's psychology not in order to excuse him but rather to demonstrate that his pathology evolved from human impulses that grew hideously twisted.
August 11, 2002
It's shocking, intense, and totally creepy, yet compelling and sad. Jeremy Renner gives a career-making performance.
August 9, 2002
It's a hellish, numbing experience to watch, and it doesn't offer any insights that haven't been thoroughly debated in the media already, back in the Dahmer heyday of the mid-'90s.
August 8, 2002
In Dahmer's pillow game the atrocity is all about existential tragedy.
August 8, 2002
Renner's performance as Dahmer is unforgettable, deeply absorbing.
