It tries hard to be sexy, mysterious and dangerous, but ends up laughably inscrutable. Full Review
Dana Stevens
The New York Times
The story, to the extent that it is comprehensible, is pretentious and banal, closer to "Vanilla Sky" than "Notorious." But Mr. De Palma proves that, in the absence of insight or ideas, some amazing things are possible. It is possible, for instance, to be entranced by a movie without believing it for a second.

Washington Post
Mainly, Femme Fatale is really about De Palma's three favorite things: women, movies and women. And you can either share his guilty pleasures in all their living, breathing, power-edited, overextended glory, or you can get on with your life. Full Review
Edward Guthmann
San Francisco Chronicle
Sexy and passably entertaining, with a plot that's too clever by half. Full Review
James Berardinelli
Nothing short of a disaster -– easily one of the worst movies of the year. Full Review
