Suspensful,Seductive,Excellent Movie!! Another great role for Chazz Palmenteri. No matter what movie he's in or what role hes given he always takes charge! I Love HIM!! The movie is based on a murder in the begining and David Curoso is the investigator and he has to figure out who killed "him". His best friend is married to his ex girl who you can tell is still in love with. Im sorry that wife of Matt Gavins (Chazz Palmenteri) is a hoe! David has to find out who "Jade" is because that will link to the murderer. The Ending is so unexpected and Suprising! I recommend this movie to everyone! Its Great~ but i must say Chazz Palmenteri shows his characters more as a gangster like in "Bronx Tale" You Should Be more in those movies Chazz, your the big boss man who takes over every movie i've seen him in! You go Boy!~

A corporate man is found murdered and a D.A. (David Caruso) investigates the gruesome crime. He thinks it's his ex-girlfriend, psychologist (Linda Fiorentino) who did it. Ok, there goes the rest of the movie. Better storylines develop on "As the World Turns." All this movie needed was 'small people' with magical powers. But "Jade" isn't a typical movie that deals with 'the dark side.' I mean this woman was icy cold (who I might add is gorgeous)! She made Darth Vader look like an amateur. A huge car chase in Chinatown highlights the movie and the direction by William Friedkin is fine. Ok movie.

Format: DVD
Basic Instinct screenwriter Joe Esterhas' wicked knowledge of the trangsgressions of the rich and the powerful are deftly exposed by director William Friedkin and Linda Fiorentino. She is perfectly cast as the psychologist and as the illicit liason Jade. Chazz Palminteri, her husband, and David Caruso, a tad young for the role, makes for an interesting storyline. The graphic sexuality exhibited is for adults only but the movie delivers the seedy underbelly of politics and power and illustrates how a woman scorned can enter into a circle from which she has no escape. Unlike the Last Seduction, Fiorentino is the victim and not the temptress yearning for the love she doesn't have. Unfortunately, her husband isn't it either. With Loreena McKennitt's soulful sounds and Linda's great performance, she eventually gets under your skin as a woman looking for love in all the wrong places. Maybe that was the moral rather than Joe Esterhas's preoccupation with all the women he couldn't have in high school (as one critic wrote). Deftly directed, superbly acted, and well-executed. Jade is worth a watch only because of Linda Fiorentino's emotional resonance and convincing performance. Chazz is as excellent as ever. -Felecia Constance Rowe

The technical elements and the production values in 'Jade' are first-rate - fine photography, a creepy James Horner score and lavish, elegant sets. If you are studying production design or film music, this is a good movie to see.
The problem is that the script is trash. It's not much more than a 'Basic Instinct' clone with elements, such as ones set in Chinatown, that lead nowhere at all. They just fill the skimpy story out to a feature length running time. Of course, if you are studying script writing, you get some ideas of what not to do.
The marvelous cast is wasted because this is one of those movies where the characters do what they do only because the script says they must. AS a result, Caruso, Fiorentino and Palmenteri can do nothing more than give a little color to their cardboard characters.

Format: DVD
Not a bad film to pass an evening's time with. A murder mystery with elements of surprise. This film will stretch you neither intellectually nor artistically, but it features some sumptuous interiors and locales (e.g., the real Sheraton Palace Hotel Garden Court done up as a ballroom), and persons familiar with San Francisco will enjoy that and other location shots. Excellent cinematography, interesting music that's not overdone, and so-so acting, but the yarn is at least followable. I've seen a lot worse. Nil extras on the DVD, though, a disappointment.

After all of the reviews for this movie, I thought it would be really stupid. But I changed my mind when I seen this film. The screenplay is terrific in every sense that this film wasn't a big hit. Bad casting for the lead role of the D.A. Still a must-see

Yes, it maybe sordid but this movie is worth getting out for a rainy Saturday night. Friedkin plays with color in this movie extensively and the results are luscious. The editing and direction is top notch given that the subject is difficult to explore. Friedkin achieves a successful disconnect from the subject matter by exploring the story from a neutral POV. This neutral POV is underlined by the film's lack of a clear hero/heroine and the constant use of abstract camera angles. If you sort of lick this get To Live and Die In LA!!!

Those final words of the movie will just send shivers up and down your spine. This movie is awesome, right from the start. Non-stop action and steamy sex scenes make this movie a must for a fan of detective movies or sexual thrillers. Just pop a bowl of popcorn, cuddle up with your honey, and get absorbed into this one of a kind, fascinating movie.
