The film is a little longer than it needs to be, but on balance, this is one of the sleekest, most involving mysteries to hit the big screen this year.

[Minghella] certainly deserves kudos for including those stunning location shots as well as such incredibly haunting background music. And, of course, for casting the talented Mr. Damon.

If anybody can create sympathy for the devil, the angelic Matt Damon can.

Although it goes on one stilled heartbeat too long, Anthony Minghella's masterpiece, an adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's creepy favorite The Talented Mr. Ripley, is indeed fashioned the old, classical way.
March 5, 2002
Writer and director Anthony Minghella has adapted Patricia Highsmith's murder-mystery for the screen. It is a rigorous moral study of envy.

Minghella's -- and Damon's -- triumph here is in making Ripleys of us all.

A film Hitchcock would have been proud to make, which is as strong a compliment as one can give to Mingella's efforts in this uniformly first-rate, darkly chilling thriller.

Anthony Minghella, as in his last movie The English Patient, keeps the story going a good 15 or 20 minutes past its natural conclusion, but at least this time the story is more interesting.

Matt Damon is simply not convincing in this role. Not only is his performance flat, but he is unable to generate any sense of menace.

The Talented Mr. Ripley may be Hitchcock on holiday, but that's a perfectly enjoyable vacation.
January 1, 2000
The Talented Mr. Ripley is a purposeful visual feast.

It's an eerily affecting film that reminds us that everyone has wanted to be someone else at some point in their lives.
