Critic Reviews for Impulse
A painfully atrocious would-be thriller with some of the worst directing and acting you're ever likely to see. William Shatner is amazingly bad, and the little blonde girl is even worse. Truly hideous.
Audience Reviews for Impulse
What's really the strangest part of this movie - beyond the bizarre direction, the hokey acting, the hilarious outfits, the lame dialogue and the snooze-worthy plot - is the movie's assumption that ALL children (at least every child in this film) have an Oedipus complex. And that leads them to go from jealous to stabby in like, boy, 5 seconds. I want to know what happened to the writer in their past that caused them to write such an out-there concept. In a way, this movie is so bad it's watchable, but at the same time if you miss it like, you're probably better off. Bonus points for the unintentionally hilarious scene where Shatner punches a dozen balloons and berates a stranger for carrying them.
Low budget junk that managed to rope in Ruth Roman in the cast. She was far too good an actress to be stuck in trash like this. Shatner chews the scenery shamelessly.
It was fun to see Shatner playing the bad guy for once. This movie is actually more funny than scary, but I really enjoyed it.
