Well done production with excellent acting. Twins are often very close in identifying with one another. They have psychic level communications with one another greater than do non-twins. They may be reared separately with no contact, but as adults share many tastes, preferences, ideas, and personality traits This movie explores the sometimes inextricably mutual identification of twins to produce

Cronenberg handles his usual fondness for gore in muted style. Full Review

It's almost too rich in ideas for its own good: The sense of concentration and proportion isn't there. But it remains an astonishing, magnetic, devastating piece of work. [23 Sept 1988] Full Review

For those who enjoy cinematic visits to other, darker worlds, this blood's for you. Watching Ringers is not unlike watching a critical operation -- unnerving but also enthralling. [23 Sept 1988] Full Review

What makes the performance(s) even better is that Mr. Irons invests these bizarre, potentially freakish characters with so much intelligence and so much real feeling. [23 Sept 1988, p.C10] Full Review

USA Today
An instant classic, an Oscar-worthy showcase for Jeremy Irons, and a tightrope ballet over dicey screen material… A subtle movie - and thus a disturbing one. Like “Vertigo,” “The Night of the Hunter,” “Repulsion” and a few others, it finds beauty in morbidity - then nags you to come back for a second dose. [23 Sept 1988] Full Review
