Critic Reviews of "Secret Window"New York ObserverApril 01, 2004
Mr. Depp demonstrates once again that he never disappoints as an actor, even in something as fraudulent as Secret Window.Salon.comMarch 21, 2004
The story is so basic that it makes a fine template for an exercise in style, and Koepp layers on the details with great relish.New York ObserverMarch 18, 2004
Has no story, no ending and no redeeming value.Chicago ReaderMarch 16, 2004
The plot certainly has possibilities, but far too many of them are botched by writer-director David Koepp, who's a better writer than director.Village VoiceMarch 16, 2004
Adapted from a Stephen King novella, the film lurches tiredly through the author's favorite masochistic-narcissistic fantasy, subjecting a woebegone writer to a gauntlet of abuse.Ebert & RoeperMarch 15, 2004
[I]t's so refreshing to see a thriller that doesn't compromise itself with a pat Hollywood ending.Common Sense MediaDecember 28, 2010
It all feels recycled and re-recycled.Cinema CrazedApril 29, 2009
Johnny Depp is the saving grace of a sub-par, often boring mystery film with a spirited performance.eFilmCritic.comSeptember 23, 2007
Once again, Depp slouches into a piece of mainstream entertainment and takes every opportunity to amuse himself.Christianity TodayOctober 11, 2006
This is, in short, a mystery story that has very little actual mystery.Lessons of DarknessMay 04, 2005
Depp's ... wonderfully frazzled portrait of seething resentment almost makes this minor thriller seem fresh.Arkansas Democrat-GazetteJanuary 29, 2005
...an enjoyable little genre picture -- tense and stylish and full of Johnny Depp.
