Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"As slithery and seductive a thriller as you'll find."
‑ Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
"Malkovich's elegantly malicious performance gives Ripley's Game a magnetic center."
‑ David Rooney, Variety
"See this film for its story and for Malkovich' performance, or if you are easily distracted and irritated, buy the book and imagine everything yourself instead."
‑ Boyd van Hoeij,
"Now we have the real Ripley: John Malkovich."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Malkovich steals the show and director Liliana Cavani ... does a perfectly serviceable job."
‑ Christopher Null,
"Arguably the most satisfying distillation of Highsmith's nastiness, ingenuity and humor, with the added dividend of Mr. Malkovich's diabolical charm and insouciance."
‑ Andrew Sarris, New York Observer
"A surprising film with so much going for it including a lot of intrigue in Hitchcockian proportions..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Ripley's Game draws you in with its virtuoso performances and moody aura of menace."
‑ Brian Gibson, Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)
"John Malkovich [delivers] a performance that's as playful as it is perverse."
‑ Matt Brunson, Creative Loafing
"John Malkovich is perfectly cast as the amoral epicurean"
‑ Laura Clifford, Reeling Reviews
"The movie may, late in Cavani's career, come to be seen as her best work."
‑ Anthony Lane, New Yorker
"Malkovich is perhaps the best, most chillingly precise Ripley to date."
‑ Alan Morrison, Empire Magazine
"Representative of the fear and loathing attendant to the death rattle of domestic culture."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"Não é surpresa constatar que John Malkovich se revela o melhor entre os quatro intérpretes do personagem."
‑ Pablo Villaca, Cinema em Cena
"Cavani uses a seedy, spying camera and beautiful European locations to draw us into the action and dress it up as art. She's a sick puppy, but she's good at what she does."
‑ Ian Waldron-Mantgani, UK Critic
