Critic Reviews of "The Jacket"New York ObserverMarch 17, 2005
The acting is uniformly excellent.Ebert & RoeperMarch 07, 2005
It just bounces Brody back and forth in time and yanks us around, and around, and around.Washington PostMarch 04, 2005
The Jacket is doing nothing but sampling elements of Jacob's Ladder, The Silence of the Lambs and Memento.Washington PostMarch 04, 2005
Here, Maybury is just arty for art's sake, filming entire scenes in close-ups so big that viewers leave the theater knowing way more than they ever wanted to about the lead actors' bridgework.VarietyMarch 04, 2005
Pic begins as a potentially intriguing study of the depersonalizing effects of warfare, only to end up a pastiche of time-travel and psycho-ward movie cliches.Toronto StarMarch 04, 2005
It suffers from a common thriller syndrome these days: the desire to explain away madness with logic.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
Smart thriller is for mature older teens only.Eye for FilmJune 13, 2008
Maybury is an artist in addition to a director and it's clear that he has an eye for colour, which he uses cleverly to reinforce emotion.eFilmCritic.comSeptember 24, 2007
A morose and bleached-looking affair, with depressing music by Brian Eno to match.Long Island PressMay 29, 2007
There's nothing wrong with a little vicarious experience when you go to the movies, but the director seems to think that his supernatural psycho thriller has to drive you crazy, just to get what it's like to be really insane.Christianity TodaySeptember 25, 2006
A solid attempt to wrestle with some big questions. The cast is exemplary and the premise and script are well reasoned and artful. But it doesn't quite come together.Movies for the MassesAugust 31, 2006
Tadjenin seems to draw inspiration from two books: "10 ways to copy 12 Monkeys" --a far inferior read to "10 ways to write 12 Monkeys"-- and "Common Sense: A Stranger"
