"Dead Calm" ... becomes disturbing for all the wrong reasons.
New York Times
Rating: C -- Edgy cinematography keeps the tension coming like waves. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
Rating: 4/5 -- Great thriller with two excellent actors!
Rating: 3.5/4 -- A remarkable breakout for Nicole Kidman, who gives this feminist thriller everything it deserves, and more. Full Review
A classic piece of pared-down genre film-making is lent extra depth by an emotional subtext stressing Kidman's transition from dependent wife to resourceful individual. Full Review
Rating: 3/4 -- This is not a gimmick film ... and Kidman and Zane do generate real, palpable hatred in their scenes together. Full Review
Rating: 5/5 -- Fun, scary and suspensful from start to finish.
