Pure and simple trash masquerading as significance.

Its preoccupation with snazzy computer-generated special effects has left key plot points so unclear at least one baffled viewer had to retreat to the book to find out why some things happened and others did not.

The presence of Douglas, who has made a career of being pursued by beautiful, dangerous women, turns this sexual-harassment thriller into instant camp.

This witty, wily battle between genders is not so much about sexual harassment as it is about power politics in the workplace, where water-cooler gossip is replaced by E-mail, and where memo warfare is waged by combatants in virtual-reality goggles.

For those who would question Crichton's motives, Levinson and Attanasio haven't let men off the hook.

This is the least personal movie [Levinson has] made in years, and the script is more a shortening of Crichton's story than a dramatization.

If the best parts of Disclosure are its sideshows, its biggest drawback is that infernal infatuation the filmmakers have with technology and power.

Douglas, with Fatal Attraction and Basic Instinct behind him, knows all about playing male victimization without total loss of amour propre. Moore's ferocity is totally unredeemed, therefore totally riveting.

In this world of Information Highway sophistication and virtual-reality marvels, the pivotal plot points are all rickety coincidences: an overheard conversation, a fortuitous phone call.

A glibly entertaining corporate thriller.

You know in advance what the politics will be: strong women in positions of power are just fine as long as they aren't sexually dominant and obey middle-class rules of propriety.

Levinson and Attanasio don't ignore the basics of the tale, but don't indulge them either, subjectively approaching Tom's character to maximize dramatic involvement and treating the most explosive aspects of the story more rationally than emotionally.

Hokey and classy in equal measure, this is better than it ought to be.

This time, it's the author who's the dinosaur.

It is an exercise in pure cynicism, with little respect for its subject -- or for its thriller plot, which I defy anyone to explain.

As a thriller, this movie is effective and gripping, if occasionally contrived as a result of overplotting.

Smashingly entertaining.

As the poor shlub fighting several battles at once -- all of them against shrewder, meaner adversaries -- Douglas is a complex and sympathetic Everyman.

You should read what happens in the book. It would make a helluva movie.
