Thriller - This is a sexually explicit and sometimes violent mystery/thriller like the original film. Fans of star Sharon Stone may be disappointed that her screen time is fairly limited, particularly in relation to her co-star David Morrissey. Viewers may be surprised by the film's slow pace.

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Poor Who would have imagined that the most appropriate word to describe Basic Instinct 2 would be 'boring?'

Roger Ebert Full Review
Below Average Here is a movie so outrageous and preposterous it is either (a) suicidal or (b) throbbing with a horrible fascination.

USA Today Full Review
Poor The plot has no credibility. The goings-on are not suspenseful, despite a series of gory slayings.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 46 moviegoers:Sorry we couldn't collect very many opinions. The turnout was terrible. Also unfortunate are the mixed opinions. They make it difficult to help you decide if it's a movie you might enjoy.

About half of the adult males enjoyed it very much and most of the remaining half rated it as an average to below average movie. That's not bad, but it's certainly not great. I would urge caution. As I look at the much lower female opinions I wonder if some of the guys may have rated it higher because of the high sexual content? Let's face it, that's part of the allure to see this movie so it undoubtedly will show up in the opinions. It's obvious that the ladies didn't think much of "Basic Instinct 2." Only about a quarter of the females really enjoyed it. Better than half rated it as an average to below average movie, which is not good.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Celebrated London psychiatrist Dr. Michael Glass (David Morrissey) is at the top of his game. Charismatic and successful, he has a thriving practice, he is highly respected by his peers and his academic articles win him praise and accolades. When Detective Superintendent Roy Washburn (David Thewlis) asks Glass to evaluate a beautiful and captivating woman who has been linked to the mysterious death of a famous sports star, his entire world is turned upside down. The woman in question is Catherine Tramell (Sharon Stone), a best-selling American crime novelist whose grisly fictional crimes take place in real life with alarming frequency.

The magnetism between the two is immediate and Glass is intrigued by Catherine both mentally and physically. Quickly sucked into her web of lies and seduction, Glass' own basic instincts are uncovered as professional boundaries are obliterated.

As people around him are murdered one by one, a deadly battle of wits ensues between Glass and Tramell, leading to a startling climax in which he must make a choice that will change both of their lives forever.
