    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    A thriller without thrills. It's also a thriller that cheats. The story is stretched to feature length only by having the film's incidents arranged in such a way as to reveal as little as possible. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    The movie's main purpose seems to be to make audiences squirm uncomfortably. Yelp and shriek in armchair-clawing glee? Not likely. show more

    Jami Bernard New York Daily News

    Aside from its relentless exploitation of a child, this minor thriller features an intriguing beginning, a middling middle and an increasingly silly end, with a multitude of red herrings going squoosh underfoot. show more

    Michael Rechtshaffen The Hollywood Reporter

    There are twist endings and there are twist endings -- and then there is the logic-strangling, complete cheat of a reveal that takes place in the final 10 minutes of Hide and Seek. It's so absolutely preposterous that it stops the film cold and draws a collective "Aw c'mon!" show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    It's not technically true to say the movie cheats, but let's say it abandons the truth and depth of its earlier scenes. show more

    Its frights are not that chilling or original, its secrets more run-of-the-mill than astounding. show more
