Movie Info

Alec Baldwin stars in this thriller as Dr. Jed Hill, a brilliant young trauma specialist who begins to believe he can do no wrong after he saves the life of a patient given up for dead by another doctor. Jed runs into an old classmate, Andy Safian (Bill Pullman), who is now a college dean. Andy invites Jed to stay with him in the attic bedroom of a house he is renovating with his wife Tracy (Nicole Kidman). Tracy takes a dislike to Jed, whom she thinks is a psychotic egomaniac. In the mean time, Andy has to deal with a serial killer on the loose among the campus dorms. While Andy is helping belligerent law enforcement officials with the murder investigation and Jed is drinking straight shots at the local saloon, Tracy begins to have abdominal pains and is rushed to the emergency room. Jed comes directly from the bar and slices her open, removing more from her body cavity than he should. The allegations fly fast and furious between Tracy, Andy, and Jed.

Critic Reviews for Malice

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (7)

A melodramatic thriller which did surprisingly well in the US given its implausible straight-to-video scenario. Undistinguished.

It's got suspense but no staying power.

October 25, 2018 | Full Review…

No matter how wild the plot reversals, there's always a slightly madder one to come.

October 25, 2018 | Full Review…

The only thing that makes this ludicrous botch even borderline watchable is Alec Baldwin's enjoyably supercilious performance as a leering stud surgeon who thinks nothing of belting back shots of bourbon before going in to perform an operation.

October 25, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Offhand, this is the only movie I can recall in which an entire subplot about a serial killer is thrown in simply for atmosphere.

October 25, 2018 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

Malice is a polished Hollywood thriller with good pacing and plenty of slick plot devices.
