Trance is an elaborate tease. Trance is more mindless than mind-bending.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 16, 2013
The best we can say about this is that it's better than Guy Ritchie.
April 15, 2013
Boyle's showboating has none of the impact of the film's most memorable image, a sudden full-length shot of Rosario Dawson, as bare as a Renaissance Venus. This is a startling example of cinema's original and unsurpassed special effect: the human figure.

April 14, 2013
Trance isn't the director's best by a long shot, but it's a perfectly serviceable thriller with all Boyle's trademark flourishes.

April 13, 2013
... a flashy time-killer, a hodgepodge of trompe l'oeil ruses that add up to your standard noir mystery, only tricked-out in the latest in digital effects.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/3
April 13, 2013
Trance is a busy, glittering picture, but you never have much of a stake in the outlandish twists (unless you happen to take hypnotism very seriously).
Full Review | Original Score: 3/5
April 13, 2013
Like any good thriller worth its weight in red herrings, Trance keeps the audience guessing for the vast majority of its running time.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 13, 2013
A beguilingly brilliant cinematic puzzle.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/5
April 12, 2013
(Rosario) Dawson, in a performance worthy of an Academy Award nomination, reveals Lamb to be a wily fox able to outwit the stronger prey that surrounds her.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
April 12, 2013
Director Danny Boyle goes off the boil with this meandering Inception wannabe... far from being a clever, tense heist-film-with-a-twist Trance is a laboured, over-stylised slice of pseudo-psychological babble. And it's kind of dull.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
April 12, 2013
An overly-preposterous, neo-Noir crime thriller that unravels its central mystery - and then collapses when bringing deeper significance to the proceedings.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5
April 12, 2013
Trippy, intriguing, and enigmatic - it's a surreal, clever, ambiguous brain-teaser that will keep you thinking long after the lights go up.
Full Review | Original Score: 8/10
April 12, 2013
Trance is to Danny Boyle more or less as Side Effects was to Steven Soderbergh: an arty spin on a trashy B-movie, engineered to showcase the director's particular gifts.
April 12, 2013
The most mind-boggling movie since Inception, in a good way.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4
April 12, 2013
Deliciously twisty, until it has too many twists.

While we may not be able to trust any of the characters in Trance, we can certainly count on the filmmakers to deliver a story that holds us transfixed from start to finish.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
April 12, 2013
The writing is crisp and the acting on target.
Full Review | Original Score: B
April 12, 2013
Convoluted and deliciously twisty but worth even a second viewing. I've been placed under hypnosis and it's not like this at all. Why isn't Vincent Cassel a huge star in the U.S.?
April 12, 2013
This is a stylish enough, mind-bending thriller, a cocktail of "Inception," "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind," and "The Thomas Crown Affair" (the remake).
Full Review | Original Score: B

Trance stumbles around like a blind rat in a maze with no cheese at any exit: Whatever conclusion it reaches will leave us dissatisfied.
