All the clues point to her and Jessica begins to suspect that she might be the killer she is looking for.
Thriller - This is actually more of a psychological thriller with very few
thrills. There's no real action and very little suspense or
excitement. It basically a drama that shows detectives trying to
piece together all the clues to some gruesome murders. To really
enjoy "Twisted," you need to be one of those people who enjoy
figuring out the twisted plot.
PROFANITY: 23 F-words, 3 GD's, 7 S-words. Just a few others. SEX/NUDITY: Sexual motions in a couple scenes. No nudity. VIOLENCE: Several men are beat to bloody death, but no graphic violence is shown. DRUGS/ALCOHOL: Quite a bit of drinking in bars and at home. ACTION: None COMEDY: Only a few mildly funny remarks.

Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Below Average "Twisted" is a D-grade thriller with an A-list cast. It's a disappointment from start to finish, as well-respected director Philip Kaufman is unable to generate any tension or momentum from the tired story. ...the big "twist" at the end is so lame and nonsensical that it shatters any hope the film might have had of attaining respectability. For most of the 97-minute running time, Twisted merely bored me with its predictable and repetitive rhythms. But, in the final quarter-hour, it committed the unpardonable sin of insulting my intelligence.
Roger EbertFull Review Below Average "Twisted" walks like a thriller and talks like a thriller, but it squawks like a turkey. And yet the elements are in place for a film that works -- all until things start becoming clear and mysteries start being solved and we start shaking our heads, if we are well-mannered, or guffawing, if we are not.
USA TodayFull Review Below Average After a kinky start, "Twisted" takes a turn for the worst. While burying Andy Garcia in a thankless non-role as Judd's partner, "Twisted" leads to a wrap-up that'll either be visible a continent away or have you moaning, "No, no, they can't have the nerve to float that!"

OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
We collected 200 moviegoer opinions. Not the greatest opinions from such an all star cast, but certainly not terrible. What I see wrong with these opinions is a very low number of "Fantastic" opinions and a relatively high number of "Good" or lower opinions. Fortunately, there are many "Excellent" and "Very Good" opinions with virtually no really low opinions. This tells me that your probability of enjoying "Twisted," at least to some degree, is quite high. Some will enjoy it very much, but many will likely feel that it's an average movie at best. If you're unsure where you might fall, a lower cost matinee viewing may be best.
