It all feels recycled and re-recycled.

Johnny Depp is the saving grace of a sub-par, often boring mystery film with a spirited performance.

This is, in short, a mystery story that has very little actual mystery.

It's a telling sign when a supposedly sympathetic character's head is smashed on a rock and laughter erupts in the theatre.

Depp's ... wonderfully frazzled portrait of seething resentment almost makes this minor thriller seem fresh.

Another lousy movie adapted from Stephen King's writing; another slander against the mentally ill; another energetic Depp performance in a losing cause.

Wait-for-video more than straight-to-video.

A mystery whose secret is obvious from the beginning and a thriller without any genuine thrills.

Mr. Depp demonstrates once again that he never disappoints as an actor, even in something as fraudulent as Secret Window.

At a loss for what to do while I was sitting there, I wondered why Depp would agree to play the role in a hairdo inspired by Carrot Top.

Bottom line, it's extremely predictable, even if you didn't read the original novella.
March 22, 2004
A pastiche of past thrillers, recycling its elements from The Shining, Misery, The Dark Half and just about every other King project this side of The Mangler.
