2.0 out of 5 stars Boring May 21 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Horrible dialogue. Slow - drags on and has no redeeming qualities. Even the actors are drasgged down by the poor plot and script! Do not waste your time.
I own many other Brian DePalma movies and this is by far the worst!

5.0 out of 5 stars DePalma's best Dec 21 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
This is the best Brian De Palma film ever, and I've seen them all. Great performances by the mostly female cast. The film left you guessing throughout and, even at the end, we were still "cliff hanging" when the credits rolled. This is the best erotic thriller since "Basic Instinct". Thoroughly enjoyable pace and the eroticism was more imagined than "in our face" like any true "Hitchcock-ian" piece.

4.0 out of 5 stars A movie that keeps you guessing and stays one step ahead of you. Super entertaining and I highly recommend this. I say A- Sept. 16 2013
By Tony Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
"There's no backstabbing here, it's just business." Christine (McAdams) and Isabelle (Rapace) are ad executives who have friendly relationship. After coming up with a great ad idea for jeans Isabelle is sent to London to pitch it. When it becomes a hit and is picked up Christine takes the credit. This event begins a chain reaction of trying to one up the other that quickly spirals out of control. I have been watching as many movies as I can without seeing the trailer first, that way I have no preconceived expectations. That said knowing Noomi Rapace was in this and Brian De Palma directed this I was excited. I was not disappointed at all. De Palma is the master of the erotic thriller and he again proves why with this movie. The beginning is a little slow but you will be glad you stuck with it. Because I watch so many movies I am getting very good at predicting how a movie will play out. This is one that was consistently one step ahead of me and as soon as I thought I knew what was going on I was proved wrong. To me that is what makes a good movie, being surprised with how it will go keeps you watching and wondering. I am very surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I highly recommend this. I give it an A-.

3.0 out of 5 stars LESSER REMAKE OF FRENCH MOVIE CRIME D'AMOUR -- link included below Sept. 6 2013
By MyD -- The Viewpoint - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Blu-ray
***2 1/2 stars*** FOR POORLY PLACED CASTING OF TWO TERRIFIC STARS IN A REMAKE THAT DOESN'T MATCH THE ORIGINAL

I love both Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace in other films, but I feel they were not used correctly here. Most Americans viewing this film will assume it is an original work if they haven't seen the previous French movie Love Crime (Crime D'Amour). In fact, Passion is a very close copy of the superior French film staring Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier.

McAdams simply doesn't have the look of power and authority required for a manipulative business executive (too young) and Noomi Rapace struggles trying to be the young ingénue up and comer in the company. Actually, if they just switched rolls I think Noomi could have projected the authority and manipulation while Mcadams could be the supposedly naïve one. Where the French version builds the mystery within a mystery - piece by meticulous piece, the devices of suspense in this film come across trite and perfunctory by comparison. If you only watch the US version, you may find it a passable mystery at best unless you are a die hard De Palma fan. Additionally, I didn't find the chemistry between McAdams and Rapace that convincing and the movie as a whole just wasn't that sexy, particularly for the R rating and hype surrounding the film.

I would not call the French film a masterpiece, but it has great depth, meticulous construction of the crime, suspense, and believable sapphic infatuation. Ludivine Sagnier is far more sexy and believable as the naïve assistant that is initially manipulated in the affair.

PLOT: A rising female advertising exec uses the romantic infatuation of her bright young female assistant to manipulate her into giving ideas, which she steals to promote her own career, later humiliating the assistant when she has what she wants. The assistant is more than just a bright study with a penchant for powerful women. Needless to say, things take a dark turn for several of the characters involved. This is a little simplistic since both movies try to project more allegorical meanings while delving into deep emotional and psychological depths. However, I don't wish to give any spoilers so I will leave it at that. There are also plot divergences between the two movies as they deal with the later half of the film and I found the previous French version more satisfying in that respect as well.

De Palma fans will want to see this movie and may even appreciate it greatly. For other viewers it's probably a mixed bag.

3.0 out of 5 stars Trashy and ridiculous but entertaining Jan. 26 2014
By Andres C. Salama - Published on Amazon.com
An OK thriller by a master of the genre. Brian De Palma's latest film is sleazy and trashy but entertaining. A bitchy executive in an ad company (Rachel McAdams) starts plotting against her seemingly nice assistant (Swedish actress Noomi Rapace, who played Lisbeth Salander in the Millennium trilogy) when she learns she is having an affair with her own lover, the sleazy Dirk (Paul Anderson). And this is only the beginning. Given the name and work of the director, I was surprised by the low production values of this film. Filmed in Germany, the movie has the look of a straight to video erotic thriller. For instance, even though the action takes place within a large company, only four people seem to be working there. De Palma it seems didn't even have enough of a budget to hire extras. This is a remake of a French film that is reportedly better. Still, it is entertaining, even if the plot become more and more ridiculous. The fine performances of Rapace and McAdams help.

2.0 out of 5 stars `No backstabbing. Just business.' Aug. 4 2013
By Grady Harp - Published on Amazon.com
Brian De Palma has created such absorbing films as Redacted, The Black Dahlia, Femme Fatale, Mission: Impossible, Carlito's Way, The Bonfire of the Vanities, Casualties of War, The Untouchables, Wise Guys, Scarface, Blow Out among others and is usually a dependable craftsman of tightly woven movies that explore the mind of crime. So why is this film such a mess? Perhaps it is his re-writing of Natalie Carter and Alain Corneau's fine French film "Crime d'amour" with Kristin Scott Thomas and Ludivine Sagnier that is at fault or the strange casting of Rachel McAdams and Noomi Repace (both usually fine actresses) in the lead roles, but whatever happened it makes for a very non-De Palma movie - and a thudding predictable bore at that.

Ruthless executive Christine (Rachel McAdams) brings on Isabelle (Noomi Repace) as her assistant, and she takes delight in toying with the young woman's innocence. But when the protégé's ideas become tempting enough for Christine to pass on as her own, she underestimates Isabelle's ambition and cunning -- and the ground is set for all out war. The use of the now infamous spying cameras and computer manipulations are stale, as is complicating the story with a love triangle with the drunken Dirk (Paul Anderson) and a vying for same sex attraction among the two women and Isabelle's protégé Dani (Karoline Herfurth). The clues to the silly crimes committed are offered in the first part of the film only to resurrect in the end in a vapid conclusion. Professional women who care about their perception as leaders will be appalled by this flimsy, thoughtless, poorly paced tale of humiliation and revenge and murder. Strange because McAdams and Repace are usually so fine when they have good material. Grady Harp, August 13

I liked the plot twists and turns that evolved through-out this movie. It was sort of predictable but ok to fill time.
