Primarily, the movie works as a showcase for Garcia and Keaton.

A preposterous yet entertaining thriller with Michael Keaton stretching admirably as a Hannibal Lecter-style killer.

"Desperate Measures" is a drawn-out, and purely disposable, suspense thriller.

Keaton and Garcia have never been any more desperate than in this silly film.

an astoundingly inept thriller that's easily the worst movie ever directed by Barbet Schroeder and may well prove to be an all-time low for everyone else involved with it.

É uma pena que este seja um filme de ação. A premissa do filme é tão forte e bem armada que, com certeza, poderia ter gerado uma história muito mais dramática e complexa.
