I guess it's not really a guy movie.

This could have been a complex, erotic thriller but it fell short to me.
Z Hayes
This is a very twisted movie that is well acted.

Atom Egoyan's new film Chloe tells a story that's been told many times before, the tale of the woman scorned. But the new perspective that Egoyan brings to the erotic thriller genre, that makes it more original and provocative than any film I've seen this year.

Julianne Moore's portrayal of the heroine, Catherine Stewart, is near perfect. Moore has really been at the top of her game lately. In A Single Man, she played a character that she also brought great depth to, despite having only about fifteen minutes of air-time. In Chloe, she plays an upper middle-class gynecologist, who has been married to David (Liam Neeson) for many years. She suspects that he's having an affair, after noticing his flirtacious banter with a waitress, and after missing a flight, and his surprise birthday party. And just like that, her long simmering suspicions rise to the surface.

Finding no answer other than infidelity, she hires an escort, played by Amanda Seyfried, in the title role, to seduce her husband, to see his reaction. She finds herself "directing" she and her husband's encounters, giving Chloe notes on how to react to certain things that her husband says and does. Ergo, the fireworks start, and needless to say, lies are told and people get hurt.

This is Julianne Moore's best work in years. She has a knack for giving emotionally devastating performances, and she's in top form here. Her ability to say so much with saying so little, never ceases to amaze me. But the true star here is Amanda Seyfried, who gives the performance of her career. Her repertoire includes mostly comedies, like Mean Girls and Mamma Mia, but the amount of dramatic depth that she brings to the table is unbelievable.

i thought it had a really good cast and that the dynamic between the characters was really good too. it was nice to see amanda seyfried doing a new kind of role and she did an excellent job at portraying "chloe". julianne moore is pretty much awesome in whatever she does and this was no different. liam neeson wasn't there for some of the shooting because of natasha richardson's skiing accident; but he managed to film all his scenes over a short period of time. i thought this movie was very good (including the storyline) and very sexy too. you aren't really sure what is going on (the truth) until near the end of the movie. the sex scenes are also very hot. i recommend at least giving it a chance and not to be fooled by the negative reviews.

A film that works as both a mild psychological thriller and a brief portrait of a marriage in tatters, Chloe is grounded solely by its otherwise stellar cast. Rising star Amanda Seyfried plays the titular character, an alluring icy blond escort who is hired by Catherine (Julianne Moore), a doctor who suspects that her professor husband David (Liam Neeson) is cheating her. Chloe's job is simple; lure the husband into a compromising position and see if he takes the bait. But what begins as a simple plan quickly turns into something much more complex and potentially devastating for all parties involved. The mounting tension among the film's two core relationships promises much during the film's running time, but it drifts into its third act in a manner that ultimately sabotages the story and keeps it from becoming something truly memorable, ending with more of a whisper versus a bang. While it cleverly uses the classic psycho-sexual thriller Fatal Attraction as a worthy framework, Chloe took the premise and gave it a refreshing twist and that alone is worth giving it a rental viewing. Aside from that, view the film for what should be regarded as Amanda Seyfried's breakout performance. If anything should be remembered after walking away, it's that the young doe-eyed actress definitely has the talent to pull of a serious role.

There are numerous fatal attraction movies out there, and you're thinking who needs another? How many Rocky sequels (7) do we need, right? As every movie takes some aspects from its predecessors, the majority of movie releases are rarely original material, and hence exist a degree of predictability. But somehow this flick is one grabs you and with an artistic creation that impacts your mind, and will still linger.

The French is the unmatched nativity of erotic thrillers, so the Americans had to borrow some of Nathalie (this movie's predecessor), and it worked out brilliantly here. Add that to smooth, natural characters who play so well, they're all very believable, and a plot where a thin line exists with every decision these characters make. The storyline is like a ride to place these characters as a catalyst or template to frame yourself in.

The whole premise or driving force is the irony that even though Catherine was being "cheated on," she was the one in power, control, and decision making (calling the shots) in the "business transaction" boss of hiring Chloe. Catherine had the div's (inside scoop) of her husband David's every actions/reactions. Chloe is weakened by the succumbed-damnation in her chain of desire for Catherine. However, it is Catherine who becomes snarled and tangled in her own web. This futility is like a never ending battle of self desire, control and empowerment. And we the audience are sucked in as well. I'll leave the rest of the details for your own unearthing.

What made the story so believable is the incredible all around production of this movie, from the flawless acting, to the directing (Atom Epoyan), and impeccably perfect blu ray HD picture.
