Movie Reviews

The Hollywood Reporter - 8/10 by Duane Byrge Admittedly, The Jacket is not likely to be everyone's cup of tea, but filmmaker John Maybury has forged a mesmerizing mindblower.
Chicago Tribune - 8/10 by Kevin Williams A gripping drama that will leave thoughtful cinemagoers wrestling with basic Big Questions.
Christian Science Monitor - 8/10 by David Sterritt The result is what you might call a mass-audience art film. It doesn't entirely succeed, but it's certainly a change from today's standard mysteries and horror movies.
ReelViews - 8/10 by James Berardinelli This movie probably falls within the purview of a "love it/hate it" subgenre of the psychological thriller.
Entertainment Weekly - 7/10 by Owen Gleiberman Director John Maybury has a feel for shock rhythms, and he's skillful at keeping you guessing, but after a while you want your questions to cohere into compelling answers, and in The Jacket they don't, quite.
Seattle Post-Intelligencer - 6/10 by Paula Nechak Maybury's attempt at a more mainstream movie is really just a simple love story cloaked in a lot of metaphysical mumbo-jumbo.
Empire - 6/10 by Kim Newman A gripping, affecting, strange movie -- but oddly, it's just like too many other gripping, affecting, strange movies we've seen recently.
TV Guide Magazine - 6/10 by Maitland McDonagh This kind of gloomy razzle-dazzle isn't everyone's cup of mind-altering tea, but strong performances make it worth the effort to keep the time-tripping shenanigans straight until the surprisingly satisfying payoff.
Los Angeles Times - 6/10 by Kevin Thomas Intermittently compelling but unavoidably improbable.
L.A. Weekly - 6/10 by Chuck Wilson The director's work is suitably unnerving, but leaves one feeling beaten senseless by reel two. When the hero's well-earned moment of clarity finally arrives, most will likely be too numbed out to care, despite the best efforts of Brody, an actor too vividly alive to be wasting his time playing dead.
USA Today - 6/10 by Claudia Puig The Jacket is a confused attempt at headiness that feels like a poor man's "Memento."
New York Daily News - 6/10 by Jami Bernard Adrien Brody is cornering the market on roles where he's hunted, haunted and under-nourished.
