Critic Reviews for The Serpent

All Critics (2)

This is altogether one of those lamentable films in which false clues are constantly tossed at the viewer -- events that could not have happened in this particular way in the light of the explanations given later.

Serpent is a low-key espionage procedural drama that has more good moments than bad.
