Nothing about the movie even makes sense!ReelViewsJanuary 01, 2000

Stephen King's 1982 Different Seasons collection has been a gold mine for moviemakers:Kalamazoo GazetteJune 21, 2002
"Pupil" demonstrates Singer's eye for framing shots and his skill in bringing out the best in his stars. Even so, there's something amiss here.CinerinaJune 15, 2001
It's a story that has taken 10 years to get to the screen at least, but what kept it from the screen for so long was lost when it was finally filmed.MoviolaMarch 14, 2001
No hace mas que dejarnos la sensación de que o bien el director fue una llamarada de petate o el escritor vio pasar sus mejores momentos hace ya varios añosTheFilmFile.comJanuary 01, 2000
Renfro and McKellen are nothing short of spectacular, but with all things considered, Apt Pupil just isn't a very well thought-out picture.
