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

Can you say Vaginal? Well before a young David Feingold watched this movie he wasn't so sure if he could. Almost twenty years later and still not sure who the killer was, this movie has stood the test of time. Oh yeah it also features a hot Jean Tripplehorn

" Notes: Well, this movie was unfortunately 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 but it’s such a pity that almost everything she did afterwards was eventually really underwhelming, ‘Casino’ being one of the very few exceptions.

"23.7. Netflix Uusintakatselu. Kun juonikäänteet menevät, kuten niiden olettaa menevän, johdattelujen viedessä hassusti toiseen suuntaan, eikä mielestään kummemmin niitä muista 11 vuoden takaa, herää väkisin kysymys, onko koko pointti juurikin tässä. Johdatella katsoja uskomaan, ettei ilmeinen ole ilmeistä vain ollakseen lopulta ilmeisen ilmeistä? Suuri shokkiloppu mahtipontisine musiikkeineen nyt ainakin on ihan vittuilua. Jos tämä olisi jonkun tavan suorittajan ohjaustyö, t"

"19.10. Michael Douglasin naamalta paistaa aivan jäätävä tuijotus, kun Sharon Stone vilauttelee superseksikkäässä eroottisessa trillerissä. Verhoevenilainen näyttelijänohjaus puristaa roolisuorituksista jotain uskomatonta esille. Juonikuvion tyhmyys jaksaa naurattaa."

"Difficult though it might be to push aside the film’s legacy, which was cemented with a crotch shot that was lit like a Technicolor movie musical and treated like The Arrival of the Train at La Ciotat, Basic Instinct has a firm place in Verhoeven’s vision of Grand Guignol feminism. And it’s not so strange as a mile-marker of contemporary film noir; like many of its progenitors, it’s about a guy who makes the lethal error of trying to solve a mystery by thinking with his dick, and a woman"
