Critic Reviews for The Moment

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (5)

"The Moment" is a psychological thriller more muddled than the mind and the maze it is caught up in.

Watching the movie becomes a kind of parlor game: Is Lee capable of murder? Which moment is the moment?

You don't ever really know what's going on, but at least the heavy-handed music tells you what to feel.

The Moment is another in a long string of thrill-free psychological "thrillers" that fail from start to finish.

Viewers must work as hard as Lee to determine past from present; you may feel amnesiac yourself by film's end.

After you sit with [The Moment] for a while, you realize that it just doesn't get crazy right.
