Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The movie is a spirited attempt at modern film noir, and huge parts of it are enjoyable."
‑ Desson Thomson, Washington Post
"[A] well-paced, cleverly written and quite diabolical thriller."
‑ David Stratton, Variety
"Not since Kathleen Turner set her sights on William Hurt in Body Heat, has seduction and manipulation been showcased better than in this raunchy page turner"
‑ Urban Cinefile Critics, Urban Cinefile
"Linda Fiorentino turns in a sharp performance as perhaps the screen's nastiest femme fatale, ever."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Dahl's best film to date with twists galore and an energised performance from Fiorentino."

"What Sharon Stone did for the ice pick, Linda Fiorentino does for the ice princess."
‑ Rita Kempley, Washington Post
"[A] tortuous, well-acted, witty, crisply photographed and immensely enjoyable thriller."
‑ Geoff Andrew, Time Out
"An updated noir thriller that decisively puts the fatale back into femme fatale."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"An amoral black comedy-noir with a selfish and ruthless heroine (wonderfully played by Linda Fiorentino) that joins the ranks of Mary Astor (Maltese Falcon) Stanwyck(Double Indemnity), and Kathlees Turner (Body Heat)."
‑ Emanuel Levy, EmanuelLevy.Com
"The film celebrates the appeal of evil"
‑ Douglas Pratt, DVDLaser
"It's an entertaining and caustically humorous thriller if you like that sort of thing."
‑ Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader
"Mr. Dahl was good to begin with, and now he's badder and better."
‑ Janet Maslin, New York Times
"Fiorentino lights up this stylish noir classic and breaths new, menacing life into the femme fatale role. Barbara Stanwyck would be proud."
‑ Ben Reynolds, Film4
"Post Tarantino noir with simmering wit."

"A lushly vile Fiorentino makes this a must see."
‑ Brandon Judell, PopcornQ
