Movie Reviews

DVD Review - 8/10 by Felix Gonzalez Jr. ... the film astoundingly reaches new levels of unintentional self-parody with every turn.
Movie Metropolis - 5/10 by John J. Puccio What could have been an intriguing psychological drama turns into a mediocre crime thriller.
rec.arts.movies.reviews - 5/10 by David N. Butterworth While it's often fun watching Jim Carrey handle more serious material the same cannot always be said of director Joel Schumacher.
IGN Movies - 5/10 by Stax The Number 23 is Schumacher's first stab at a scary movie, the end result just doesn't quite add up.
Sydney Morning Herald - 5/10 by George Palathingal This thriller's biggest mistake is its belief that it's as clever and original as it is visually stylish.
CinePassion - 5/10 by Fernando F. Croce Nothing to decipher here
TheShiznit.co.uk - 4/10 by Ali Gray As far as psychological thrillers go, The Number 23 is a little too much 'psycho' and not enough 'logical'.
Urban Cinefile - 4/10 by Urban Cinefile Critics Joel Schumacher does a chaotic job of turning this thriller into indigestible jelly %u2013 it wobbles formless for a while, finally settling into the shape of a duck
Panorama - 4/10 by Jean-François Vandeuren ...tombe dans pratiquement tous les pièges dans lesquels le genre se complait mollement depuis déjà plusieurs années
The Scorecard Review - 3/10 by Jeff Bayer Jim Carrey tries his best, but the film never gets psychologically creepy, never makes the viewer question what is fiction, what is reality, and most importantly what the number 23 is all about.
Georgia Straight - 3/10 by Steve Newton As Walter's/Fingerling's paranoia grows, the viewer is irritatingly yanked back and forth between the real and imagined settings, and left to decide which one is more ridiculous.
Common Sense Media - 2/10 by Charles Cassady Absurd, dark, and a miscast Jim Carrey. Yuck.
