Critic Reviews for Looker

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (3)

A silly and unconvincing contempo sci-fi thriller.

November 5, 2008 | Full Review…

Tediously convoluted.

Top Critic

The plot is pretty silly but Mr. Crichton's handling of it is even sillier, though it is bold.

August 30, 2004 | Rating: 2/5

...Finney looks uncomfortable running around with an accessorised time-stopping gun and glasses combo...

February 24, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Looker is the worst Michael Crichton concoction to date.

May 26, 2020 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Overall the film's decor and attitude towards women strongly reminded me of a combination of the homoerotic volleyball scene in Top Gun, the casual nudity of Showgirls and a dash of Rhona Mitra's pink-AF bedroom from Hollow Man

Audience Reviews for Looker


Interesting premise, but very dated (80's) and quite choppy in places. Bring a barf back for the title song.
