Consensus: Despite its promising pedigree and a titillating premise, Chloe ultimately fails to deliver the heat -- or the thrills -- expected of a sexual thriller.

Peter Rainer
Christian Science Monitor

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.

New York Magazine/Vulture

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.

Intense at times, intriguing at others, Chloe will have her audience in those who want to see, peeking as in a peep show the intimacies of a woman, her husband and her lover. [Full review in Spanish]

The story is the problem here, devolving into a ridiculous situation that produces far more groans than chills or thrills.

Dana Stevens

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.

Are meaty female roles so hard to come by in the US these days that even actresses as formidable as Moore choose such compromises?

I enjoyed because the actors don't camp it.

Liam Lacey
Globe and Mail

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.

Dennis Schwartz
Ozus' World Movie Reviews

Becomes more a turnoff than a turn-on.

Chloe is one of those films that is hard to review without revealing too much of the plot. Atom Egoyan has adapted a foreign film, and for my taste, while it… More

Utter and complete crap. Not worth the time to watch it.
