Sincerely, The Rotten Tomatoes Team
Overall, The Watcher had the potential of being a solid thriller, but as a plot it lacked mystery and reasoning for what we see on screen. Our two leads provides
an unsatisfactory performance with very little to enjoy or remember. Forgettable.

It was very good but very creepy
James Sparder and Keanu Reeves play cat and mouse as a tortured detective and a deranged stalker/serial killer in this inept suspense thriller. Reeves is almost laughable in his attempts to seem menacing and Spader comes off as more whiny than anything. They added Marisa Tomei in there as a psychiatrist for good measure. It may have worked better had Spader and Reeves switched roles but alas. There isn't much watching going on here either and no sense of foreboding dread or fearfulness. Absolute drivel.
Reeves does a lame job, kinda funny. Was engaging story however
That was a ridiculously nail-biting thriller, the ending was kind of like wtf, but it made sense. I would have preferred if there was an interview section. I really liked this film and I was very immersed into the plot. This is a solid epic thriller / suspense slasher murder mystery film.
It was okay, slow at first but finally pulled itself together at the end.
The Watcher lacks tension, thrills, or believability, especially in Keanu Reeves' preposterous role as a serial killer.
Better than nothing.
Spader can not save the tedious thriller though he tries,oh how he tries.
Reeves dancing to Rob Zombie's Dragula! Priceless!
