As slithery and seductive a thriller as you'll find.
Arguably the most satisfying distillation of Highsmith's nastiness, ingenuity and humor, with the added dividend of Mr. Malkovich's diabolical charm and insouciance.
The movie may, late in Cavani's career, come to be seen as her best work.
Malkovich's elegantly malicious performance gives Ripley's Game a magnetic center.
A surprising film with so much going for it including a lot of intrigue in Hitchcockian proportions...
Malkovich is perhaps the best, most chillingly precise Ripley to date.
See this film for its story and for Malkovich' performance, or if you are easily distracted and irritated, buy the book and imagine everything yourself instead.
Ripley's Game draws you in with its virtuoso performances and moody aura of menace.
Representative of the fear and loathing attendant to the death rattle of domestic culture.
Now we have the real Ripley: John Malkovich.
John Malkovich [delivers] a performance that's as playful as it is perverse.
Não é surpresa constatar que John Malkovich se revela o melhor entre os quatro intérpretes do personagem.
My predicting rating: 3.5
A film that is reasonably slow moving in parts and yet still manages to be intriguing. It does lack a little psychological feel to it, but John Malkovich is one smooth criminal in this, watchable, but lacked a little something.
Uhhh well shocked really at how much i didnt really enjoy it compared with the reviews its had!
Fantastic cast brilliant scenery , nice acting but the storyline just wasnt as good as id hope to be honest!
for a psychological thriller its not very manipulative or physcho really i mean first he doesnt like the guy and wants revenge so he pushes him into murder but then in the end he helps him out so i just thought it was a tad weird and confusing for a simple story to follow!!
Its a bit slow and not that much action to be honest, apart from the near end with a shootout as such and is fairly amusing with Mahlkovich being brilliant!
Good Cast...Great Locations...A Surprisingly Mediocre Film.
I think if you go into this with no knowledge of any of the other "Ripley" films, you will probably enjoy this a lot more then I did.
Having greatly enjoyed "The Talented Mister Ripley", this was a little disapointing. To spite it's notable cast it seemed a little low budget and slightly dated, even though it is only a few years old.
Not entirely without merit, just forget everything you you THINK you know about "Mr. Ripley" and enjoy the ride.
Did make me more interested in reading some of Patricia Highsmiths other "Tom Ripley" books.
Tom Ripley, formerly played by Matt Damon returns for another thriller, in this in the shape of John Malkovich. The look, feel and direction of the movie sometimes feels really old-fashioned, almost like a French film noir from the 70s. Accordingly the pace is rather slow, but the violence well timed and realistic. That's not awfully exciting but pretty entertaining and carried by an excellent Malkovich, giving cold-hearted, witty and arrogant comments in the cruelest situations, making the character his own. It is him who moves this film above average, but the rest of the cast is just as convincing.
Not bad at all.
