Rating: 3.5/4 -- Copycat doesn't have the dark tones of Seven, or that movie's distinctive look. But in its own way, it is as effective. It creates original characters and makes them more important than the plot. We care, and that's the key. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/5 -- Not -half-bad serial killer thriller. A great cast helps immeasurably.

Rating: 3/4 -- [Gives] Weaver equal billing with everyone's favorite Southern spitfire, Holly Hunter. Teaming up these heavyweights is the genius notion of Copycat, a solid serial-killer thriller elevated by phenomenal acting. [Blu-ray] Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Great cast but too nasty-tempered to elevate it from its sordid serial killer roots.

...Weaver is good....Hunter is in her element....Movies like these are a safe way to meet our fears vicariously, and to exorcise them...
