I ************ this movie at Dollar Cinema. It was awesome that changed many ways and the ending totally unexpected.

Mixed review - very slow to start and I felt the details got a bit \"muddled\" as the plot unfolded. Has a bit of a Hitchcock feel to the movie without Hitchcock's sharp focus. Enjoyed Jude Law. Okay matinee movie.

Somewhat satisfying. Took too long to get to the thrills and the ending was unbelievably mundane.

Ultimately, think of the movie as a puzzle box in which all the pieces fit together wonderfully well. Once you step back and take a look at how it’s all put together, you have to marvel at how cleverly constructed the whole thing is. Full Review

While the plot may be predictable (and more than a little preposterous) in retrospect, Mr. Soderbergh handles it brilliantly, serving notice once again that he is a crackerjack genre technician. Full Review
Like Magic Mike, Side Effects is enlivened by Soderbergh's jazzy style and laidback moralism, bringing to mind the work of another connoisseur of genre, Robert Altman. Full Review
The scenes pile up with frenetic intensity; as with Soderbergh's other recent exercises in the suspense genre, no single cutaway goes wasted. Full Review

In another sense, though, everything is exactly what it seems, expertly crafted and cleverly compounded for high-dose entertainment. Full Review
