Pointedly ugly vigilante screed.
September 9, 2004
It doesn't take long for the film to devolve into a ludicrously far-fetched Celebrity Death Wish.
September 7, 2004
An egregiously self-serving slice of celebrity worship.
September 7, 2004
Visually uninspired and dramatically overheated, Paparazzi has overall look and feel of generic direct-to-video production.
September 7, 2004
A vigilante movie so sleazy and creepy it makes Death Wish look like a comedy.
September 7, 2004
A vigilante fable so boorish, brainless and mean-spirited, everyone involved should be locked up for assault.
September 7, 2004
For anyone who's ever wondered how good it would feel to knock down a photographer with his car and then back over him.
September 7, 2004
No serious exploration of the issue of the invasion of privacy of celebrities but a classic exploitation picture -- topical, punchy, occasionally unintentionally laughable and morally dubious.
September 6, 2004
A cheeseball revenge thriller with an alarmingly twisted moral.
September 6, 2004
One has the sense that if the level of violence had been ratcheted up a little, Paparazzi might have been more of a guilty pleasure and less of a chore to watch.
September 5, 2004
Burdened with wooden acting and a laughable, Death Wish-like premise.
September 4, 2004
The film is directed by Paul Abascal who exhibits all the subtlety you would expect from a director who got his start as a celebrity hair stylist.
September 4, 2004
Amazingly arrogant, immoral film.
September 3, 2004
Laughably heavy-handed and violent.
