DePalma must have made this on a lark as it was pretty weak. Some of the shots are stellar, classic Depalma, especially with the use of streaks of bright color on Christine and some of the angles and hard shadows. The casting of Rachael McAdams as Christine was a huge mistake as it is impossible for anyone who saw the original Love Crimes to not compare her to the French Christine. McAdams' character was too young and girly, lacking the poise, command and sophistication required for a person in a position of Christine's. This movie moved too fast and did not explore the psychology of the characters with the necessary patience nor did it pace the plot properly. Noomi Rapace was good, but this is no surprise. Do yourself a favor and see the original, as the acting is far more superb, and it is casted and paced much better. It will not be ruined one bit by seeing Passion beforehand.

Have you ever wondered how it is possible to identify a rubbishy movie within the first 20 seconds of dialog? It is simply amazing how fast a crap script writer can get fatuous nauseating inane notions across in such a short time; something that should surely be speculated upon in film schools during the first semester. And we sure have one here: silly spite, pointless rejoinders, phony regrets, token-lesbianism, sleazy egoism; all in one pointless, plot less string of malicious banalities that makes melodramatic 50s B movies look like literary fiction. Have you ever wondered why, even when given a million dollar budget, movie makers will waste such an opportunity on a string of clichés and bland story development that would embarrass your thirteen-year-old daughter and bore your cat? It is surely a wonder. And a wonder that movie audiences would put up with such drivel and not walk out.
Well, I did. And it took me an hour to recover my composure.
Review: I didn't enjoy this movie that much because I found it quite slow and it did bore me in places. The two leading actresses put in good performances, but the whole tempo of the movie was slow and it doesn't seem to start to get going until the end. There are a couple of twists that makes you stick with the film but its still quite dull. The whole plot is based around sex, insecurities and portrayal and then it veers near the end, which was way to late for me. It seemed like t was made for TV, which was why it didn't make that much noise in Hollywood even though it has 2 big names as the leading characters. I was expecting much more from this thriller, but as usual, I was quite disappointed.
Round-Up: Since the original Dragon Tattoo franchise, Noomi Rapace's career has blossoms from movies like Prometheus to Sherlock Holmes, she can't seem to do much wrong and I don't that this movie will put a dent in her achievements. As for Rachel Adams, I don't really think that she suited being a bitch because I have seen her play the sweet girl next door so many times in movies like the Notebook, The Vow and she was also in Sherlock Holmes. With 2 big names as these, the director must have thought that this movie was halfway to making some noise in the movie world, but I think that the script could have done with some more work.

I recommend this movie to people who are into there drama/thrillers about a controlling boss who thinks that she can get away with everything. 3/10
