Critic Reviews for The Minus Man
Owen Wilson, who can look reassuring or not, depending on how much tension he allows into his face, finds the right insidious, ingratiating tone for Van.
A sociopathic serial poisoner provides everyone with the nihilistic zero they need in this intelligent and disheartening dramatic thriller for Generation Blank.
A powerful performance by Wilson....and believe me, you've never seen him like this!
Horrible character piece. Nothing happens and you don't care why.
The film's measured pace might not be for every viewer, but it added greatly to the tension.
Audience Reviews for The Minus Man
Something constructed back when Owen Wilson felt a need to act. The film hangs far too often.
A very disappointing attempt of a psychological thriller about a murderer in the shape of a regular guy. While Owen Wilson turns out be be very convincing despite of his comedy background, and the rest of the cast is pretty good too, somehow the movie just isn't very interesting. The killer poisons one victim after the other rather randomly and yet nothing exciting happens. No suspense, no surprises, just a few rather odd scenes of imaginary dialogues with policemen. Boring.
