Critic Reviews for The Last Seduction
The movie is a spirited attempt at modern film noir, and huge parts of it are enjoyable.
What Sharon Stone did for the ice pick, Linda Fiorentino does for the ice princess.
It's an entertaining and caustically humorous thriller if you like that sort of thing.
[A] well-paced, cleverly written and quite diabolical thriller.
[A] tortuous, well-acted, witty, crisply photographed and immensely enjoyable thriller.
Audience Reviews for The Last Seduction
An efficient film noir with a clever plot and an extremely diabolical femme fatale played by a very inspired Linda Fiorentino. Also deserving praise is Bill Pullman, who is surprisingly funny as the furious husband trying to catch her in this witty cat-and-mouse game.
Quite chilling and zingy, but I'm slightly conflicted about Bridget's feminist rhetoric. I found myself liking her because she takes what she wants at whatever cost, but then I realized I was glorifying a sociopath. Is it feminist or unfeminist to like a woman because she's evil and damn good at it? Can we, as a gender-conscious society, like a "strong" female character only if she's also villainized? Sidebar: Doesn't Linda Fiorentino look like Lauren Bacall in that movie poster? I don't know if that's an implied reference to film noir, and as such, why every other review calls this film a neo-noir. I personally didn't see much film noir elements. It seems more screwball black black black comedy.
Wonderful performance from Fiorentino.
