Hands-down worst movies of the season!
January 1, 2000
Sloppily structured, snoozily paced!
January 1, 2000
[Hopkins and Gooding Jr.] keep Instinct afloat on its sea of simplisms through a succession of climaxes until at last it reaches its unavoidable ending.
January 1, 2000
Strong performances!
January 1, 2000
Heavy on formula and lean on revelation.
January 1, 2000
Gooding is at his best!
January 1, 2000
A moribund, noisome redux of any disposable prison movie you care to remember.

Instinct" is a marketing hook attempting to pass itself off as a movie.
January 1, 2000
Solid directing and good acting!

Instinct is the second one in a row that Gooding lifts out of mediocrity by the sheer force of his talent, intelligence and personality.

If there's anything worse than a movie hammered together out of pieces of bad screenplays, it's a movie made from the scraps of good ones.
January 1, 2000
Too simplistic and schematic!
January 1, 2000
Gooding hurts the film more than his energetic presence helps it!
January 1, 2000
The result is so artificial.

Regardless of how familiar the storyline and characters seem, everyone connected with the movie seems to think it's of invaluable importance. Instinct is one suffocatingly pompous flick.
