Berardinelli, Internet CriticFull Review Average Interesting visuals and an elliptical style aren't enough. The central mystery is sufficiently intriguing to keep the viewer engaged to a degree but the resolution is both unsurprising and unsatisfying.
Roger EbertFull Review Average ...as a fully satisfying feature-length drama, it's a bust. And it's iffy as a visionary spectacle, too, because it's too long and over-scaled... This is all a shame, because there's much to admire in "A Cure for Wellness.”
