Critic Reviews for Ripley's Game
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...
Audience Reviews for Ripley's Game
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.
