Critic Reviews for Murder at 1600

All Critics (49) | Top Critics (14)

Murder is a fairly diverting game of whodunit, like a big-screen version of Clue, until it sinks into routine thriller antics and wraps up preposterously.

...a forgettable '90s thriller.

If this sounds like a by-the-numbers, formulaic government conspiracy thriller, it is.

Audience Reviews for Murder at 1600

Starts well but falls apart into unbelievability at the end.

Pretty average 90's action movie. Wesley is okay...but he should stick to playing badass badguys

I liked this one. A little action and a good mystery.
