Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Sharon Stone goes cold in this botched thiller-maybe from the effort of pretending that her character, a beauteous book editor, would fall for the preening young computer wizard played by the vacant-and-proud-of-it William Baldwin."
‑ Michael Sragow, New Yorker
"A glossy, trashy psychological thriller that manages to entertain despite a reshot ending which is too abrupt."
‑ Chuck O'Leary, Fantastica Daily
"Stone and Noyce fall from grace."
‑ Victoria Alexander,
"Silly title aside, Sliver does have, at its best, one of the most unconventional endings in recent memory. At its worst, it's just not very interesting."
‑ David N. Butterworth,
"...stripped of its thriller elements, the movie is really just a subpar 9 1/2 Weeks clone..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"A hot follow-up to "Basic Instinct"....just as sizzling"
‑ Clint Morris, Moviehole
"'You like to watch don't you'... that may be true, but I would have liked watching even more if I were watching something better."
‑ Michael Dequina,
"Director Phillip Noyce's camera will leer at anything that clenches and unclenches with a steady rhythm."
‑ Don Willmott,
‑ Alex Sandell, Juicy Cerebellum
"Sliver has a few mildly memorable moments, but is for the most part a waste of time. It is indicative of the poor career choices Sharon Stone made once she became a household name."
‑ Larry Carroll,
