    Edward GuthmannSan Francisco Chronicle

    This is a tour-de-force performance, delivered by an actor at the top of his game, and it's a shame that K-Pax, instead of engaging our imaginations as it promises to, devolves into such a conventional, paint-by- numbers disappointment. show more

    The images are lustrous, the cutting is brisk and the acting of the two leads is right on the money. show more

    Roger EbertChicago Sun-Times

    The heart of the movie is in the Spacey performance, and in knowing that less is more, he plays Prot absolutely matter-of-factly. show more
