All Critics (17) | Top Critics (3)

A silly and unconvincing contempo sci-fi thriller.

Tediously convoluted.

Top Critic

The plot is pretty silly but Mr. Crichton's handling of it is even sillier, though it is bold.

Top Critic

This confusing, silly story from writer-director Michael Crichton concerns hypnotic TV commercials, models, and stun guns.

Audience Reviews for Looker


Interesting premise, but very dated (80's) and quite choppy in places. Bring a barf back for the title song.

Anthony Valletta

Super Reviewer

I loved this flick and the required stretch of the imagination, wasn't that far fetched for me. Consider this film in light of current and improving CGI technology. If/when the technology is good enough, flesh and blood actors could become obsolete. Think of it: being able to bring back to life some of the really, really great actors. Wow! And the current and not so recent past crop of so called "good actors", Are, well honestly and with very few exceptions, simply pitiful. I personally can't wait. βΆ--βΆ Russell Johnson.

I don't know why the summary here says it's silly, this isn't silly at all. This movie makes me paranoid about the industry today, with the way everything is being done with computers now, how do we know that this isn't what they're really doing? This was a great sci-fi thriller, I especially liked Coburn in one of the bad guy roles. Very cool movie.
