Scissors Reviews

  • Apr 03, 2021

    Scissors is a disappointing film. It is a woman who is trying to recover from a sexual attack. Sharon Stone and Ronny Cox give horrible performances. The screenplay is badly written. Frank De Felitta did a terrible job directing this movie. I was not impressed with this motion picture.

    Scissors does its best to be a Hitchcock-like thriller, but fails miserably in every respect. Directed by somebody by the name of Frank de Felitta, this mess seemingly and deservedly ended his career as a director. In an incredibly poor casting decision, Sharon Stone plays a sexually repressed (I mean…c'mon) woman who is assaulted in the elevator of her apartment. Rescued by a neighbor played by Steve Railsback (in a dual role, he also plays his wheelchair-bound twin, who serves no purpose in the story), she eventually winds up in a penthouse apartment across town where she finds the body of the man who assaulted her. From here, things get very convoluted. There are really no redeeming qualities to Scissors, other than a bunch of unintentional laughs and the fact that Sharon Stone is beautiful to look at.

    There are so many things that make no sense and plot points that are completely meaningless. The main supporting actor, Steve Railsback plays twins, but neither of those characters story arcs play a factor in the main storyline or the climax of the film. The acting is so over the top you'd think someone told Sharon Stone this was a comedy. Almost no situation put on screen in this film makes any logical sense. There's a bird in the film and you can see the string attached to its leg that the handler is using to control it. This is definitely a so bad it's good movie, but be warned the score may be the worst I've ever heard and it's bad in a bad way and the movie is at least 15 minutes too long, so even the "good" parts can drag and get tedious at times.

    Bad. Very, very bad. Terrible sound quality & editing. Cliche characters. Bad acting. Soundtrack is that of a 1970s porno. Absurd plot. Must be why Sharon Stone's career died.

    Few movies this divided. Clearly, this is a B level production with sub-par acting, for the most part. Even so, there are redeeming qualities here that save some face. The story takes a long time to kick into gear, but it turns into an interesting and darkly ironic story. Some of the audio dubbing is extremely bad, which unfortunately robs the feeling of important scenes and cheapens it. That is too bad, because some of the camerawork in the later part of the movie is actually decent. The pace putters along but late in the movie the tone completely shifts. It takes obnoxiously bold post-modern interior design and cameras and music slowly shift to an uneasy feeling then building until it becomes altogether unnerving. The director takes a number of cues from Alfred Hitchcock in the climatic scenes, and they are surprisingly good. Luckily, the main two parts played by a young Sharon Stone and Ronny Cox are not terrible, and the story is enough to keep it from failing.

    Good storyline and an ending that I never expected. I also love watching Sharon Stone act in movies :)

    There are some interesting concepts, but overall it is one of the most ridiculous films I haven't seen in a while.

    If it weren't for the scenes in that creepy ass apartment this movie would've been plain boring. A lot of WTF moments, unintentional laughs, predictable but kept me interested enough to keep watching. Ronny Cox, as always, is delightful.
