Brian De Palma returns to the sleek, sly, seductive territory of Dressed To Kill with an erotic thriller fueled by sex, ambition, image, envy and the dark, murderous side of PASSION. Rachel McAdams and Noomi Rapace star as two rising female executives in a multinational corporation whose fierce competition to rise up the ranks is about to turn literally cut-throat.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
Passion turns into vintage De Palma - which is to say, the film seems almost engineered to get you giggling at the extravagance of its absurdity.Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly, 08.28.2013
I have no objection to DePalma laughing at himself. But his heart's not in it. Neither is his libido. Passion lacks the promise of its title. It's dead inside.Peter Travers, Rolling Stone, 08.30.2013
This tarted-up English-language remake affords some modestly campy pleasures, but lacks the delirious trash-horror verve of De Palma's best work.Justin Chang, Variety, 08.26.2013
After the clinically dull first half, it's more desperate pantry raid than feast.Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times, 08.30.2013
