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.

Chuck O'Leary
Fantastica Daily

A glossy, trashy psychological thriller that manages to entertain despite a reshot ending which is too abrupt.

Victoria Alexander

Stone and Noyce fall from grace.

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.

Rarely rises above "stupid" Exposed Esztherhas' lack of talent; Stone's inability to play vulnerable and Baldwin's lack of appeal.

An ok raunchy thriller, not at the standard of Basic Instinct or Fatal Attraction though. There aren't that many twists or shocks in store, it's… More

"Sliver" is somewhat effective in two different areas that it tries to be effective in. Sharon Stone is known to be in a lot of erotically effective… More
