Not what it could have been, but memorably moody
| Original Score: 3/5
August 22, 2002
As a vampire picture -- pure and simple -- it's in a class by itself in both scope and stylishness.

August 16, 2002
A fabulous adaptation of the Anne Rice novel and one of the best modern vampire films. In a genre dominated by trash, this is a rare gem.
| Original Score: 5/5
August 5, 2002
A well-made yet failed film that could give real pleasure only to those who prefer form over content.

Filled with a great cast and a very talented director, Interview with a Vampire is a great film

A night stalker yearns to maintain his human emotions of love, grief and guilt.

The movie may well make money, but no matter how many zillions it grosses, Tom Cruise will forever after be something of a joke.

What everyone missed, while hanging on to Tom's every "mon Dieu," was Jordan's ability to turn a novel with a flaccid film premise into something worth watching.

For all its visionary brilliance, the movie version of Interview never lets us close enough to see ourselves in Louis. We're dazzled but unmoved.

When Interview with the Vampire works, it's as compelling and engrossing a piece of entertainment as is available on film today. When it falters, the weaknesses seem magnified.

My complaint about the film is that not very much happens, in the plot sense.

The movie's energy starts to drain like blood from a vampire's victim. You'll feel that ebb, sooner or later, as you begin to glance regularly at your watch.
January 1, 2000
Passionately anticipated and much ballyhooed, the film, alas, is little more than a foppish, fang de siecle costume drama. Its pulse barely registers.
January 1, 2000
The film is all mood, but little drama.

A very satisfying film, and surely the first in a long franchise.

I got bored silly and totally disgusted.

Whatever one's preconceived notions might have been about Cruise as Lestat, he is very powerful in the role and literally takes charge every time he's on the screen.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
January 1, 2000
While vampire stories tend to be either scary or campy, Interview somehow manages to be neither...
| Original Score: 2.5/5
January 1, 2000
Outfitted in prosthetic fangs, translucent white makeup and a long, frizzy wig that makes him look like Tiny Tim, Cruise brings tremendous exuberance -- if not a lot of insight or nuance -- to the role of the vampire.
January 1, 2000
Cruise will surprise Anne Rice fans as he did the author herself.
