Critic Reviews of "Snake Eyes"VarietySeptember 18, 2008
Wispy threads of dramatic plausibility and character involvement unravel completely by the time of the incredibly silly final reel.New York ObserverApril 27, 2007
Never loses its bearings as it hovers between preposterous paranoia and a Billy-Wilder-like moral fable about a deeply flawed hero who draws a line in the sand beyond which he cannot go.Time OutFebruary 09, 2006
The film echoes the technical wizardry and complex plotting of De Palma's best film, Blow Out.Globe and MailJuly 12, 2002
Director Brian De Palma does his stylish best to weave the patchy script into a cinematic quilt, but despite his best efforts -- and they're often formidable -- the thing just doesn't cohere.San Francisco ChronicleJune 18, 2002
What might have been fascinating after a while becomes frustrating and, finally, a real slog.Chicago Sun-TimesJanuary 01, 2000
It's the worst kind of bad film: the kind that gets you all worked up and then lets you down, instead of just being lousy from the first shot.City Pages, Minneapolis/St. PaulAugust 21, 2009
De Palma continues perfecting his brilliant visual style within the most blatantly artificial plot scenarios.TV GuideSeptember 18, 2008
Brian De Palma's exercise in flashy paranoia and shallow cynicism comes out of the gate like gangbusters, but falls apart in a flurry of preposterous plotting.Film4September 18, 2008
Aside from a sensational, continuous 20-minute opening take, and an amazing shot that literally swoops over the top of a row of hotel rooms, there's little of interest here.Slant MagazineSeptember 23, 2006
Snake Eyes is about multiple perceptions of one major event, their relationship to each other and to the audience.Combustible CelluloidMay 26, 2006
The first 20 minutes of Snake Eyes are among the most imaginative and energetic minutes of film I've seen in a while.Fantastica DailyJanuary 24, 2006
A moderately suspenseful thriller that seems somewhat conventional compared to De Palma's earlier envelope-pushing efforts. Intriguing, but the mystery villain is rather obvious from the start.
