Movie Reviews

Decent film
Jessica Davis | Virginia | 02/04/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Put all of the "this plot has been done before" thoughts aside, and this is a pretty decent movie. Actually, I thought it was more surprising and more believable that some of the other teen/colleage age horror/murder films. It had me wondering right up until the end if my assumption of what was really going on was right. I think it is definitely worth checking out."

"Without rehasing the plot which can be found in the other good reviews, THE CURVE is a disturbing film and mainly because the bad guys seem to have no moral foundation at all. Matthew Lillard in a devilishly demonic performance, finds it easy to just roll Randall Batinkoff off the cliff. As the movie progresses, his deliciously psychotic character does everything he can to be obnoxious, manipulative and heartless. Rarely has a character seemed so heartless and malicious as his buddy, Randall Batinkoff. He treats his girlfriend so badly you want him to be dead. Keri Russell becomes a chameleon, one never knows what to expect from this girl. And Michael Vartan as the focal "hero," Chris, seems to be innocently oblivious to the deadly mechanisms Lillard is orchestrating. Add Dana Delany as a psychiatrist trapped by her knowledge of how these vicious minds are working and you have a cast of unusually non-empathic characters.
What makes it work though are the several unexpected twists that come in the movie. Subtle hints are given throughout the film, but they still pack a wallop at the end.
THE CURVE is a sophisticated and tidy little thriller that should have received a little more notice, but it is a Hitchcockian tribute well done."
Awesome plot and suspense

"Great plot and suspense! It's the Usual Suspects set to a college enviornment!
The plot twists and turns, keeping you constantly guessing, with no way for you to know how it ends. It's one of those films, like the Usual Suspects, that you want to watch multiple times and every time you see it you catch something new.
The dialogue is clever, the acting superb. This is a definite must-see!!!!!"
Clever indie movie

"This straight-to-video release is actually a lot better than a lot of postmodern thrillers that have been scurried to the shelves in the wake of the hugely successful 'Scream' movies. It's plot has two college guys plotting to kill off their roomate because it will ensure them a 4.0 grade average, getting them both into Harvard. After all, their friend Rand is an easy target, what with his girlfriend Natalie getting pregnant and the depressing range of books and CDs that his mates leave by his bed. And so it's done, the only problem being that a body can't be found and the police start sniffing around.Lillard is exceptional as the canniving lead, especially when the extent of his scheme becomes apparent to the guy he plots with. Twist after twist follows this but unlike something like 'Wild Things', the movie manages to pull them off well. In particular the last scene is very gripping indeed, and it's not without a good dollop of black humour. If this is never quite as scary as 'Jeepers Creepers' or as consistently witty as 'Scream', it is still a real original in the horror field and is genuinely intelligent."
