    Joe MorgensternWall Street Journal

    Secret Window has an ending that lets one of our most reliably interesting actors pull out all the stops. But getting there from a good beginning followed by a slow, repetitive middle is a test of resourcefulness for him and a test of patience for us.

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