    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    The talented Mr. Minghella has made an imperfect movie but not an impersonal one. His morality tale means to get under the skin, and does. show more

    Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle

    This thriller is so expertly -- and perversely -- poised that audience members may find themselves secretly rooting for the duplicitous Ripley. show more

    Mike Clark USA Today

    In a possible breakthrough role, Law would seem to be the big winner. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    Takes startling - and startlingly unpleasant - turns. This is not a film with anything approximating a conventional ending. show more

    Matt Damon's performance isn't bad, but it pales in comparison with Law's. show more

    Michael Atkinson Mr. Showbiz

    A near-perfect confection, a beautifully executed Hollywood all-you-can-eat salad bar of glamour, plot twists, breathtaking Mediterranean vistas, and jazz. show more

    The movie is as intelligent a thriller as you'll see this year. show more

    Wesley Morris San Francisco Examiner

    It's that rare movie with a sense of timeliness that is eternal, and a protagonist whose soul-crushed angst, even at its most fatal, speaks to the little boy/girl lost in everyone. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    The picture has fine ensemble acting and superb Italian scenery. It would have more power if it were shorter and tighter. show more

    Rene Rodriguez Miami Herald

    Delivers all the expected moments of high suspense --that is worthy of Hitchcock show more

    one of Matt Damons last great films along side "Good Will Hunting". at first his acting seems very mediocre but when you get into the story you realize that Mr. Ripley is not very interesting along side his psychopathic tendancies. Also very suprised to see Jude Law taking it up a notch, i was never a big fan but he made me take notice on this film. Greaaat!!!

    Don't bother, especially if you are watching Matt Damon. Boring.......
