Critic Reviews of "Basic Instinct"Chicago TribuneMarch 25, 2013
Verhoeven does not explore the dark side, but merely exploits it, and that makes all the difference in the world.TIME MagazineMarch 25, 2013
[The film has] a smug faith in the ability of its own speed, smartness and luxe to wow the yokels.Seattle TimesMarch 25, 2013
Slick, clever and entertainingly overheated while you're watching it, Basic Instinct starts to evaporate the second you leave the theater.Orlando SentinelMarch 25, 2013
The harsh, politically incorrect truth about Basic Instinct is that it's a tantalizing, suspensefully correct thriller.Los Angeles TimesMarch 25, 2013
Basic Instinct is a reminder of the difference between exhilaration and exhaustion, between tension and hysteria, between eroticism and exhibitionism. The line may be fine, but it is real enough to separate the great thrillers from the also-rans.Philadelphia InquirerMarch 25, 2013
Call me a prude, but it's not sexy watching an erotic thriller in which every time a couple does it, one of them gets it with an ice pick. I don't care how many firmly toned tummies and tushes are bared.Cinemaphile.orgFebruary 03, 2017
Here is a film so utterly devoid of art and intellect that nothing remains other than a husk of ridiculous ploys.Radio TimesMarch 25, 2013
Joe Eszterhas shamelessly reworks ideas and themes he had earlier exploited in films such as Jagged Edge and Music Box, but the sheer overheated nature of Verhoeven's direction makes this extremely watchable.Film4March 25, 2013
Flashy, raunchy and schlocky, Basic Instinct is classic nineties noir for which Verhoeven's overblown direction and Stone's exposure secured a place in movie history.Sky MoviesMarch 25, 2013
The result may be flimsy, but it goes out and grabs you from the start.Total FilmMarch 25, 2013
Trailer trash Hitchcock spliced with overboiled film noir.Baltimore SunMarch 25, 2013
[Verhoeven] has always had a skill for storytelling, however questionable and tasteless the materials; but here he is hopelessly defeated by Ezsterhas' talky, slow-moving, and derivative script.
