San Francisco Chronicle
Involves two mysteries -- one it gives away and the other featuring such badly drawn characters that its outcome hardly matters. But the picture looks great. Full Review

Despite recurrent narrative and dramatic problems, each of Bigelow's pics provides a visual treat, and this film is no exception. Full Review

ReelViews
Contains multiple ax murders, lesbianism, incest, a hanging, and a storm at sea -- yet, despite all of this seemingly enticing material, it's a bore. Full Review

New York Daily News
The book has been altered in mostly reasonable ways to suit the needs of the screen, but what it loses in the translation is invaluable in comprehending what led someone to pick up an ax and wipe out two-thirds of an island's population. Full Review
