Copycat

Rating: 4 out of 5.

(spoiler-free movie review)


Copycat is a well-crafted thriller that’s expertly directed by Jon Amiel(The Core). The movie features Sigourney Weaver, who gives an excellent performance as a retired criminal phycologist, suffering from agoraphobia. Her scenes were the highlight of the movie but the supporting cast(Holly Hunter, Dermot Mulroney and Harry Connick Jr.) all played their roles perfectly. Harry Connick Jr. delivers a dynamic performance that’s so far removed from his persona, in real life, that I didn’t realize it was him until the last scene of the movie.

– Holly Hunter and Dermot Mulroney in Copycat.

Overall, Copycat is pretty solid but it’s not without it’s flaws. There’s an obnoxious love triangle, within the police department, that is more tedious to watch than engaging. Some scenes are implausible and the guards tasked to protect Helen(Sigourney Weaver) are incredibly inept.

I’ve always enjoyed 90’s era suspense-thrillers and this is a prime example of the genre.

My Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
