Rating: B- -- A guilty pleasure: Ridley Scott's fourth film is a minor work, a semi-effective combo of cop thriller and erotic noir melodrama, but it has nice visual style and the perfromances by Tom Berenger, Mimi Rogers and especially Lorraine Barcco are likable. Full Review
Jul 27, 2008
Rating: 2.5/4 -- The movie can only fully work if all sides of the love triangle are equally strong. Full Review
Film Frenzy
Mar 21, 2019
Most of New York, indoors and out, looks about as good as the Chrysler Building in Scott's gleaming fusion of eternal triangle and killer-on-the-loose. Full Review
Time Out
Jun 24, 2006
Bracco is able to perfectly blend a genuine toughness and strength with all the expected attributes of the idealized Hollywood homemaker. Full Review
Aug 28, 2019
Rating: 2/5 -- Howard Franklin's screenplay plays less like a feature film than like the pilot for a failed television series about New York policemen.

Rating: 2/4 -- Where Someone to Watch Over Me falters is, oddly enough, in the central relationship. Full Review

Rating: 1.5/4 -- aggressively pointless and utterly forgettable misfire from filmmaker Scott. Full Review

Product Description:

Ridley Scott's romantic thriller stars Mimi Rogers as ravishing New York socialite Claire Gregory and Tom Berenger as blue-collar police detective Mike Keegan. After Claire witnesses a high-profile murder, Mike is among the rotating group of detectives assigned to protect her.The simple, straightforward cop is awed both by Claire's beauty and by the endless rooms of her lavish apartment. A quiet attraction develops between the two, but neither of these otherwise committed people is willing to act on it. However, the detective's wife, Ellie (Lorraine Bracco), realizes what's happening and reacts accordingly. When Mike accompanies Claire to a museum benefit one evening, the killer, Joey Venza (Andreas Katsulas), confronts her in the ladies' room. He threatens to kill her if she identifies him in a police line-up the next day and then turns himself in to the police. Although she goes through with the identification, Venza is released on a technicality, and Claire nows needs protection more than ever. Bracco is wonderful as the cop's spirited wife.

Product Description:

A stunning New York socialite and a down-to-earth city cop are caught in a deadly web of illicit passion and heart-stopping suspense in this taut, stylish thriller. Newly-appointed detective Mike Keegan (Tom Berenger, PLATOON) finds his life turned upside down when he's assigned to protect Claire Gregory (Mimi Rogers), the beautiful eyewitness to a brutal murder. Lured into danger and the dizzying heights of Gregory's glamorous lifestyle, Keegan struggles to walk the line between protection andobsession while trying to stay one step ahead of the psychotic killer. Acclaimed director Ridley Scott (ALIEN, BLADE RUNNER), paints an erotically seductive portrait of high-stakes suspense in America's power playground in SOMEONE TO WATCH OVER ME.
