The kind of movie where you ask people how they liked it, and they say, 'Well, it was well made,' and then they wince.

Trite, weird, ridiculous, uneventful, sick. Cronenberg at his worst.
| Original Score: 1/5

A spotty affair that sometimes makes sense and sometimes does not.

People like myself who find the character played by [Genevieve] Bujold (in one of her best performances) more interesting than either of the twins are bound to feel rather frustrated by the end.

Really sordid stuff that becomes ridiculous, painful, unbelievable and tedious.

Dead Ringers is not a fun or particularly upbeat film, but it does grab you by the collar and it sucks you right into the screen.

Cronenberg and Irons achieve perfection in horror.

October 18, 2008
This is arguably David Cronenberg's masterpiece.
September 24, 2007
Director David Cronenberg handles his usual fondness for gore in muted style.
January 26, 2006
An intense psychological drama which confronts [Cronenberg's] familiar preoccupations -- fear of physical and mental disintegration, mortality, the power struggle between the sexes -- without the paradoxical protection of visceral disgust.

March 2, 2007
It's one of Cronenberg's more complex relationship tales, that puts a deadly spin on separation, loss and hopeless love.

Watching Ringers is not unlike watching a critical operation -- unnerving but also enthralling.
November 6, 2001
To watch Irons not merely inhabit two characters in the same frame but chart the dizzyingly subtle, complex dynamics between them -- their history, dependencies, fears -- is to see the thespian equivalent to splitting the atom.
February 28, 2002
Irons deserved an Oscar.

Irons is startlingly off-kilter, his performance a veritable textbook example of deranged if icy brilliance

February 18, 2014
In a weird variation of the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde theme, the Mantles are drawn relentlessly and frighteningly towards an inevitable and appalling fate.
