It was only on my radar because I kept seeing Sharon Stone on bad ass female lists on here as the character Catherine Tramell. She definitely plays a bad ass, mysterious, and not to be messed with female in this.
The film is around average, maybe a bit better, but Sharon Stone's character is definitely above that. There are some pretty random and weird moments that spice it up a little. The... read more

This movie came out when I was 7 years old. Luckily, I didn't see it for another seven years and first caught glimpse of it when I first got a TV in my room. Needless to say, I stayed tuned in because of my love of Michael Douglas, my favourite action star as a very young child thanks to his performances in Jewel in the Nile. I guess the rampant sex scenes helped keep me glued too.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- May 2016 (34 movies items)

" Netflix- 2hrs. 8min. First Viewing Basic Instinct is just ludicrous throughout it's runtime, but it knows it is and is able to find campy thrills throughout. This is the film that put Sharon Stone on the map, and she's superb throughout, controlling every scene to the point that it seems like she's the only one there. While the script quite uneven, director Verhoeven notes the right notes to play to keep this thing moving along nicely. Monthly Wesley AwardsBest Actress- Sharon Stone Best Edi"

An average movie

“This movie was Paul Verhoeven’s last success in the US and everything he made afterwards in American didn’t really work. And, of course, this feature also turned Sharon Stone into a major star. It’s such a pity that almost everything she did afterwards was eventually really underwhelming, ‘Casino’ being one of the very few exceptions. Coming back to our main feature, well, even though this movie has a rather solid reputation, to be honest, I always had some rather mixed feelings about the damned thing. Sure, I have to admit it, the first half was actually quite awesome. Indeed, it was basically some kind of really steamy Hitchockian thriller and it was quite spellbinding to watch. Indeed, the story was really entertaining and Micheal Douglas and Sharon Stone had some great chemis” read more

30 From 92: My Favorite Films From 1992 (30 movies items)

"To be totally honest, even though she did appear in a couple of films in which her thespian skillz are evident (Casino, The Muse), the truth is, I was never really all that impressed with Sharon Stone's acting ability. In this film however, I think that the character of Catherine Tramell provides the ultimate role of sexy-over-substance that is the essence of Stone's style early in her career. She seems to be able to effortlessly portray a woman who knows that the only way to grab onto the balls"
