Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Many intriguing psychological crosscurrents roil this scenario, but Egoyan too often lapses into a soft-core dreamland. The film somehow manages to be both a turn-on and a turnoff."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"Egoyan is an expert at isolating people, but he's less sure of himself when it comes to how they connect. So what happens to the character of Chloe is the worst kind of surprise, the "Huh?" that throws you fatally out of the movie."
‑ David Edelstein, New York Magazine/Vulture
"Becomes more a turnoff than a turn-on."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"Egoyan's lyrical, ethereal style is present, but Catherine's motivation and masochistic tendencies seem to emerge out of nowhere."
‑ Matt Kelemen, Las Vegas CityLife
"The liberally featured architecture of Toronto, where Chloe was shot, is outstanding. The film is another matter."
‑ Craig Mathieson,
"The story is the problem here, devolving into a ridiculous situation that produces far more groans than chills or thrills."
‑ Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic
"The only Verhoeven element that's missing is deliberate camp, a healthy ladling of which might have made Chloe worth watching for some reason other than the prospect of glimpsing Seyfried's and Moore's admirably formed torsos."
‑ Dana Stevens, Slate
"Chloe starts off as an intriguing psychological drama - and then veers off into B-movie territory. Yet Moore and Neeson are such classy actors that they can't help but elevate the pulpy material."
‑ Jason Best, Movie Talk
"I'm not often a fan of remakes but this intriguing tale has been beautifully told by Oscar nominated director Atom Egoyan."
‑ Matthew Toomey, ABC Radio Brisbane
"Amanda Seyfried is a sweetly vulnerable Chloe; Julianne Moore is cold, brittle and, well, Julianne Moore, as Catherine. Fascinating."
‑ Julie Rigg, MovieTime, ABC Radio National
"I enjoyed because the actors don't camp it."
‑ Michael Phillips, At the Movies
"This is a high-toned erotic thriller, handled with style and some emotionally raw scenes, aiming for an effect that's pleasingly unnerving, if not outright arousing."
‑ Liam Lacey, Globe and Mail
"The film goes shockingly flat when the more conventional thriller elements--what should be the film's bread and butter--kick in."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"An erotically charged arthouse thriller that will make you squirm in your seat and curse yourself for bringing a date."
‑ Alex Lindsey Jones, Moviedex
"Pity Egoyan didn't expend that degree of attention on sculpting a more memorable film, especially when you've got the powerhouse potential of Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore at your disposal."
‑ Jim Schembri, The Age (Australia)
