Depp doesn't disappoint but actually John Turturro is the one who saves the movie.

the ending is so perfect. depp is so awesome in the last few scenes. i get goosebumps every time i watch it. and it's not just the twist. it's how everything concludes, especially the final shot biting the corn

(4.0 out of 6)
When we don't see why we can no longer see the wsy we used to when we haven't felt seeing thst same passion and thrill as we used too. When we don't see what creative mind it takes to take over our mind that make us see somethings when they are not there. When we see our mind tries to help us when we can't see what blocks us, where our career started to unravel to go back and fit it to how we should have seen it the first place. When we see we unlocked that same feeling we once could see but forgot to see a new life worth persuing when our past is gone and nothing wrong interferes with our creative passion.

A nice disturbing little movie. Not one of Johny Depps most well known or probably well liked performances but he is quite amazing. He is on screen alone a lot in the movie yet he is able to keep the audience entertained and on the edge of their seats. Overall a great movie.

No where near a bad a critic's make it out to be but the ending takes a dump all over the ending of Stephen King's Novella.

Being a fan of Stephen King, I have to admit I loved this film enough to buy it on DVD. The closest thing to 'Misery' I've ever seen. Gotta love a mystery Thriller where the Bad Guy wins

Johnny Depp with this movie proved that he is one of the most versatile and consistently good actors ever. He turned the movie more funny and dark at the same time, he really did a good job. The movie could be considered a masterpiece in movies industry. It isn't only one more bloody movie. It has a clever story, a strong script, organised screenplay, it's really unpredictable and we can really say that is plot is replet of Hitchcockian twists and turns, the final is really original and helps that the movie never stop improving at the end. Really thrilling and dark, and excellent exemple of a psychological thriller.

A successful writer who accused of plagiarism.

It was based on the novel, though the original title makes more sense than this film. Maybe they wanted to avert the spoiler. But I don't think it would have affected much, because the twist comes at the final segment. The tale of a writer who is in the middle of divorce and now living alone is the lake house got threatened by a stranger, because according to him he stole his story. Followed by many unpleasant events, how he gets out of the trouble told in the next half.

Feels just an okay kind. Though Johnny Depp was good. The suspense was good, particularly in the first half, but later it comes falling down. The second half was average, the twist was not interesting enough. After some point, you might predict it, but the point is it was too familiar. I especially did not like the finale, it was like not in detail. Still a watchable film, because of the actor and for decently made. So I think worth a watch if you keep a low expectation.

there's been a few movies now with the same twist ending like this one i'v seen. it's a night time mood movie.

Johnny Depp remains irresistibly eccentric even as the preposterous un-thrilling movie crumbles around him.

One of my favorite Stephen King adaptations.

Was not expecting that twist at the end.

Secret Window has some interesting ideas and a good performance from Johnny Depp, but, as a whole, I would best describe it as forgettable. The final denouement tracks into territory that has already been explored many times before (and many times better). The buildup has moments of temporary suspense and I was curious to see where it was going, but the payoff was underwhelming and platitudinous.

David Koepp is an amazing writer. He's penned some truly great film including Carlitos Way, Jurassic Park and War of the Worlds. His directorial endeavors however, aren't as memorable, although Premium Rush has some oomph to it. With Secret Window, based on a Stephen King novella Koepp explores the thriller genre. The set-up: a depressed writer is accused of plagiarism by a menacing figure, who begins stalking him. Depp and Turturro are both fine, but the melancholy pace takes it's toll on the viewer. Not great but good.

I actually really liked it. The acting was good and the story was interesting and the ending was pretty good. I haven't read the books so I'm going solely off the movie. Nothing really new or unique though. 6.5/10
