The plot may have been intended to be clever but fails somehow to have anything very unexpected. There are problems in continuity, casting, and plotting.

Mediocre thriller with a good cast. I never want to hear that [expletive deleted] song again.

In the end the picture is done in by its familiarity - anyone who has seen any cop movies or cop TV shows has seen most of "Sea of Love" too many times before.

A lugubrious imitation of a second-rate television movie, over-produced and over-cast.

Sea of Love is unrestrained and completely hypnotic...

What impressed me most in the film was the personal chemistry between Pacino and Barkin. There can be little doubt, at this point, that Barkin is one of the most intense and passionately convincing actresses now at work in American movies.

Efficient enough as a thriller, but what makes this mandatory viewing is the return of Pacino.

Marred by an implausible ending, 'Sea of Love' is still one Pacino's best vehicles.
