By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on April 5 2015
Format: DVD
Emily (Rooney Mara) is clinically depressed. She has been seeing a psychologist (Catherine Zeta-Jones). Her white collar criminal husband (Channing Tatum) is getting out of jail, which leads to more depression. Having failed a suicide attempt, Emily is placed on medication and does the unthinkable. At this point the film goes into an odd mystery/thriller, one where everyone knows who done it. Just when you think you have it figured out, it twists, having more twists than Taylor Swift having break-up songs. Jude Law plays Dr. Jonathan Banks, a man caught in the middle of all of this.

I didn't know what to expect going into this feature. It is best not to read the reviews as it is impossible to write anything without giving away too much of the plot. If you like mystery thrillers with twists and clues that hurt your head like a Hitchcock masterpiece, this one will fit the bill. If you know anyone who takes meds for depression, then you can enjoy the film on a different level.

Parental Guide: F-bombs, sex, very brief nudity (Rooney Mara)

By K. Fabisch TOP 1000 REVIEWER on Dec 27 2014
Format: Blu-ray
Watched Side Effects.

Really enjoyed this one.

Reminded me a lot of Gone Girl, actually. That old-school kind of mystery structure like a Hitchcock movie.

Rooney Mara is seriously one of my favorite actresses now.

Jude Law, I think he's a great actor who just hasn't been getting the right movies over the last few years. Because he's fantastic in both Contagion and Side Effects. I think this might be my favorite performance of his.

Does Catherine Zeta-Jones play anything close to a likable character in movies anymore? She's really great at playing despicable women, but.... can't she play one of the good guys once in a while? :)

But she's fantastic in this movie, probably her best film/performance since Chicago or Traffic.

Certainly enjoyed HER final scene in this movie.

I am REALLY liking Soderbergh's movies as of late.

This movie is amazing when it arrived it was factory sealed no complaints what so ever my movie arrived well before the arrival date that was originally said. Thumbs up to this seller... Though the way it was packaged was not great at all it was just wrapped up in brown paper like. It should have been shipped in bubble wrap to protect better but otherwise no complaints what so ever... Thanks a million.

A killer thriller that weaves one twisted web March 13 2013
By Monkdude - Published on
Format: Blu-ray
Side Effects is a film you can't really describe without giving anything away. Avoid the trailers if possible, make it through the slow build up and you will get quite a few surprises in the second half. Easily one of the best thrillers I have seen in a long time. Jude Law in his best performance in years as a psychiatrist and Rooney Mara, fresh off of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, knocks it out of the park again as his depressed patient. She has become one of my favorite actresses. Catherine Zeta-Jones is effective and Channing Tatum has little to do, but is adequate enough. Never boring and often surprising, if this is Steven Soderbergh's last movie, he went out at the top of his game.

Surprise Ending! July 14 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Verified Purchase
It did start off slow as others stated. My Husband and I even took a break to come back to it the next day - we were falling asleep. We came back to it to finish it and so happy that we did! It was awesome! We went from going on a long drawn out buggy ride beginning to a bullet train ending. I won't give it away, but another reviewer did add (and we agree), you need the slow beginning to lay the foundation for the story. Pay attention to the details, the facial expressions of the main female character and others. It will all make sense and be worth it at the end.

Over the top, but Hitchcockian twists! March 26 2013
By John H. Macdonald - Published on
Format: DVD
***No spoilers follow***
Sure there are a few things that don't quite follow, but if you are a fan of the old Hitchcock and Twilight Zone episodes, you will appreciate this suspenseful puzzler of a movie. Centered around a psychiatrist, his depressed patient, and a fictional medication, things devolve into a murder which we witness. From there, we are never quite sure what is true and what is not. Entertaining, suspenseful, and sure, a few loose ends but who's counting? A fun way to spend an evening, and after the show, you can explain the twists to our companion!

Loved it! Oct. 2 2013
By John N. Craven - Published on
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
When it first came out, I wanted to see it but it wasn't around very long. I managed to catch it on a flight back from Paris. Great Story! Great Acting and a great twist at the end. That wasn't enough so I had to buy it, to fully appreciate it.

Interesting but slightly unbelievable Aug. 23 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Verified Purchase
I thought the idea was good but a few parts were just too unbelievable for me (I won't say which parts cause it would ruin the movie). It was still entertaining though, I just wouldn't spend the time to watch it twice.
