The New York Times
This movie is a suspense thriller whose only suspense comes from an audience wondering if the picture will hit its promised 97-minute running time. Full Review
A potent psychological thriller bolstered by strong performances and an offbeat sense of humor. What renders it an unsettling cut above many thrillers is the casting of Johnny Depp in the lead. Full Review
The resourceful actor (Depp) invigorates Secret Window with a playful personality and wryly humorous aplomb not front-and-center in the script, making the psycho-suspenser more compelling than it might otherwise have been. Full Review
You can boost mediocrity a little, but you cannot raise it from the dead. Full Review
It's a taught, entertaining motion picture that serves its purpose.
