Critic Reviews for Impulse

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

The movie is good to look at and painfully intense at times -- not so much when the plot is squeezing in, as when we're invited to identify with Russell when she's looking for trouble.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

... was unimpressed except for the performance of Theresa Russell.

Instantly forgettable cop stuff.

April 17, 2005 | Rating: 2/5

a laugh riot -- unintentionally, of course
