Don't Say a Word is mediocre, shrink-wrapped Hollywood pap.
September 28, 2001
The movie as a whole looks and occasionally plays better than it is.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
October 4, 2001
In the place of consistent psychological tension, we are saddled with shoot-outs, chases, and fight scenes.

In a word, Don't Say a Word is bad.
October 12, 2001
If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Gary Fleder's Don't Say a Word is one of the most complimentary films to hit the screens in years.

Whenever I watch one of these crime stories, I find myself musing about whether it's as intelligent and involving as Law & Order, which I can see on TV for free. Don't Say a Word isn't.
September 28, 2001
It's not interesting enough to watch, and not dull enough to walk out of. It prompts a mild state of catatonia, and nothing more.

Fleder can only fling the camera about and indulge in some familiar screen sadism ... as he tries to squeeze a few thrills from material as desiccated as his leading man.

It all gets back to that suspension of disbelief. Are you willing to make the leap?

Fleder attempts...to puff this picture up with quasi-intellectual hot air. But the truth is, Don't Say a Word is the kind of movie Hollywood makes on auto-pilot...

"Don't Say a Word" pleads on bended knee for its audience to abandon common sense.

I, for one, am getting damned tired of a ritzy street address, a killer wardrobe, and Calphalon cookware substituting for things like character. And plot.

The old adage holds true - if you can't say something nice, "Don't Say a Word."
Full Review | Original Score: D+
February 25, 2002
As the film moves along, the action becomes more exaggerated, more coincidental, and more absurd, yet it never becomes any more exciting.
