Critic Reviews for Le Serpent (The Snake)
The film isn't much like recent examples of torture porn. It's too stylish for that.
The story came from Get Carter's source author, English crime writer Ted Lewis, but the venomous sophistication and serpentine inner logic are French.
It's slick, efficient, tough-nosed film-making, enmeshing our hapless hero more and more tightly in its narrative coils. Only a matter of time, surely, before Michael Douglas shows up in the remake.
The Serpent makes atmospheric use of its urban locations. But the more overblown the film becomes the less it engages our emotions.
Audience Reviews for Le Serpent (The Snake)
Almost brilliant in every way. This is a very well written storyline of conspiracy, framing, revenge, brought to life by two brilliant performances by Yvan Attal and Clovis Cornillac, the chemistry of which between the two was totally fascinating. I am surprised that there hasn't been a Hollywood remake of this, not that it could be bettered, but it's the usual type of film that would be remade by Hollywood. The best Thriller I've seen in a while.
French thriller that just don't get better than this.Murder,blackmail,bad guy and an innocent man.All sum up to what your going to get for 2 hrs.Very enjoyable and truly gripping from start to finish.
