Critic Reviews for Link
Shue delivers her lines with the conviction of someone reciting her grocery list.
This picture merits a serious attention that its shoddy promotional exploitation will not encourage.
Despite predictability and flaws, "Link" is surprisingly good. It's a tight, involving, "Beauty and the Beast" thriller, with more humor and intelligence than you'd guess.
Perhaps, though, Link is a human comedy after all, showing us our not altogether elevated place on the evolutionary chain.
The establishing section is long and tiresome; the denouement, with a tediously indestructible monster, seems interminable, and there is not much, apart from the apes' performances, to admire in between.
Audience Reviews for Link
Unfortunately it's never as creepy as the poster, but it does come close. Link sees Elisabeth Shue take a job minding Stamp's cottage where 3 apes live. An elderly domineering female, a youngling hat can communicate via a computer, and an old geezer dressed as a butler. The latter, known as Link, soon becomes a bit obsessed with his new female house guest. Mysterious goings on soon give way to extended chase scenes. It gets a bit tiresome as you'd think some competent person could take out an orangutan in this situation. The ape that plays Link is incredible. His facial expressions put the human cast to shame, and it looks like he does a lot of his own physical scenes. Enjoyable, and sometimes creepy, it can also drag on in places.
It's sort of like a prequel to Sunset Blvd. One of the most unusual creature features I've ever seen.
