Metascore®Generally unfavorable reviewsbased on a weighted average of allcritic review scores.
This noirish, sourish thriller left me unmoving as well as unmoved.
Confuses an empty and derivative stylistic bravura with formal cleverness, and a sterile, mechanistic sensationalism with emotional intensity.

Don't say you weren't warned. There are instant clues that this ill-timed Michael Douglas vehicle is a dually unfortunate viewing experience.
The movie as a whole looks and occasionally plays better than it is.
Almost nothing new to offer -- despite its good actors, flashy visuals and well-textured New York gloss and grit. But there are teasing hints of another, better movie buried inside somewhere.
If there's such a thing as joyless competence, it's exemplified by the grimly sensational kidnap thriller Don't Say a Word.
Generates tension from the get-go, albeit of an increasingly unpleasant variety, on its way to a disappointingly generic climax.
Smart, stylish and, most important, satisfying.
