Michael Douglas or Sharon Stone since they are
quality actors with such charisma. You can't seriously think of anyone who would have been more ideal to play their roles
in a picture such as "Basic Instint."
In this movie, Nick,(Michael Douglas)the investigator, cant stop himself from playing into her game. I wont tell you what the game is for. Shes such a sophisticated, accomplished bombshell who can lure any guy, ummmm (or certain girls, heehee!)
Surely she wouldnt be bold enough to kill the man in the exact way like she wrote in her book just because she used him. She voluntarily takes a lie detector test, no problem.
Is she the real murduress? Obsessive Nick will do anything and everything to uncover this case no matter what.
"Basic Instinct" is a very smart, steamy exciting thriller that keeps you wondering. You'll be wanting to watch it soon again just to pick up on some things.
I own this standard edition DVD & it gives you the option of
seeing the movie in either full or wide screen which is really
nice. Unfortunately, I have yet to see the collector's edition which has not been out very long.
A violent icepick murder seems to have been taken right out of the mian characters most recent novel. Arrogant and cool, she entertains the police investigators ideas that she may have been the murderer. This of course took place during the all too famous interogation scene where she crosses her legs and shoots the detectibes an eyeful of her personal area. Curran of course investigates her and gets a little too close. In the process he compromises his integrity and his relationship with his current girlfriend by getting caught in her web.
Basic Instinct is a film written in a truly dark manner that at times will leave you either frustrated or uncomfortable, and will always keep you on the edge of your seat. Most will enjoy this one.
Not the best Micheal Douglas show.
Sharon was intense and WAS completely "this author", living all aspects she had arrived at or in.

Basic Instinct 2 lost its way early and I felt I was following "bad" vampire story (not a bad vampire story).
To me, the writing is stilted and feels false, for lack of a better word. The acted is consistently overdone and the direction is so calculated and false (again) that, to my mind, this movie is simply a waste of time. As a study of supposedly "kinky" sex, again, just dumb; it feels to me to be so obviously done to titilate the mainstream.
So many movies have been done so much better on so many levels than this thing. Just pathetic to see attention given to junk like this.
As a comparison, I happened to see The Godfather just prior to this and the feel of the two movies in comparison was so striking that this utterly paled. Granted, few films stand a chance when put against The Godfather, but this was so abrupt I was astounded at the utter badness of Basic Instinct.
Again, to me this is pure junk.
