    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Not surprisingly, only Samuel L. Jackson seems fully to understand that he's in a bad movie, and he makes a virtue of it, using it as an excuse to hang loose, overact and ride the scenes for wherever they might go. show more

    This is by far Kaufman's worst outing since becoming a major filmmaker more than a quarter-century ago, and the fact that his only other stinker from this period is 1993's "Rising Sun" means that maybe he ought to stay away from cop melodramas. show more

    Twisted is a movie so derivative it's hard to pinpoint exactly how many other thrillers it poaches from. show more

    Rick Groen The Globe and Mail (Toronto)

    It's always rather sad to watch gifted performers stranded in a tepid thriller. You can see them, as professional pretenders, trying to believe that they're creating a character, but the lie is transparent -- all they're really doing is advancing a retarded plot. show more

    Roger Ebert Chicago Sun-Times

    Walks like a thriller and talks like a thriller, but it squawks like a turkey. show more
