    The movie telegraphs its intentions too early and relies too much on a single actor, Johnny Depp, to achieve its emotional force. show more

    The story is more entertaining as it rolls along than it is when it gets to the finish line. But at least King uses his imagination right up to the end, and spares us the obligatory violent showdown that a lesser storyteller would have settled for. show more

    David SterrittChristian Science Monitor

    Depp gives a smart, subtle performance, and Turturro is terrific as a foe who's both exactly what he seems and exactly the opposite. Koepp's makes his (literally) corny tricks seemfresh and surprising. show more
