Ricci is convincingly terrified in a film that's never scary enough to justify her performance.
Distorted leaves viewers with a disjointed, unoriginal story, a made-for-TV feel, and underwhelming thrills, with the only saving graces being the presence of Ricci and Cusack.
"Distorted" plays one too many tricks, and its casting is abysmal.
All told, Distorted doesn't entirely waste but also doesn't do much justice to a premise that, in the right hands, could have elicited more thrills, more relevance, or, at least, more obvious interest in its own ideas.
A would-be psychological thriller that manages to be both boring and goofy...generates tedium rather than tension.
While the premise is mildly intriguing, the film's reliance on visual gimmickry never serves to establish consistent suspense before the whole thing runs off the rails in the incoherent final act.
Rapid-fire disturbing images in paranoid thriller.
A slick and gripping psychological thriller that fizzles out by the end. Christina Ricci's raw, convincingly moving performance is one of the best of her career which somewhat compensates for the screenplay's lack of emotional depth.
The idea is that through state-of-the-art invasive mind control we can be made to perform acts against our will. Not a bad starting point, but the follow-through is simply all smoke and no fire. Blah.
