Critic Reviews for Dangerously Close

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (6)

... a script that, for all its early interest, falls into lockstep as quickly as you can say "teen exploitation."

January 3, 2018 | Full Review…

Dangerously Close is more than just a stylish shocker. It captures the ugly underside of a new teen-age obsession, forcing us to marvel at its ferocity and shudder at its possible consequences.

July 15, 2014 | Full Review…

It surely does not contain any socially redeeming value.

July 15, 2014 | Rating: 0/4 | Full Review…

The movie revels in the kind of sadism it criticizes.

July 15, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the adolescent world created within the film extends to its conception.

May 21, 2003 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

This movie lacks the courage to admit what it is really about.
