      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      With wooden acting and hammy, overheated dialogue, Slow Burn isn't so much a noir as it is a mediocre parody of one.

      Toddy Burton Austin Chronicle The cast, particularly Liotta, walks around with befuddled expressions on their faces, perhaps wondering what on earth they're doing in this movie and how they can find a new agent ASAP. Rated: 0.5/5 Mar 25, 2020 Full Review J. R. Jones Chicago Reader Shelved for over a year, this incompetent mystery thriller stops periodically so some character or other can deliver an expository speech and pull the plot back on track, but by the end the story has turned into a hair ball. Dec 3, 2007 Full Review Scott Brown Entertainment Weekly A strange, sprained, but sprightly fusion of The Usual Suspects and the Tragic Mulatto, Slow Burn wants badly to turn its standard neo-noir into a nuanced racial chiaroscuro. Rated: C+ Apr 18, 2007 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews An unappealing big city neo-noir film. Rated: C+ Feb 27, 2018 Full Review Kam Williams NewsBlaze A slow death. Rated: 1/4 Aug 29, 2007 Full Review David Cornelius DVDTalk.com The screenplay is riddled with so many problems, clichés, cheats, and borrowed ideas that the movie never takes off on a story level. Rated: 2/5 Jul 24, 2007 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member Unfortunately, with all of the comparisons to the Usual Suspects, this movie was bound to not live up to expectations. If this movie existed in a vacuum, it would have been better reviewed, as it was entertaining and well thought out. Alas, we do not live in a vacuum. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/24/23 Full Review Audience Member If you can suspend your disbelief (about how Nora and the elusive Danny could have set themselves up), this is actually a very good movie Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/17/23 Full Review Audience Member Sorry Liotta , this is not the movie i gonna remember from ...The movie never seems to start on a decent level . SOMDVD Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/23 Full Review don s This mystery takes its title too seriously, especially the slow part. The first 2/3 of the movie moves at a glacial pace. By the time it kick starts in the final 1/3, you really don't much care how it ends. There are so many turns fit into that last few scenes it nearly makes your head spin. The story does come together in a manner that makes sense, it just takes way to long to get there to make it worthwhile. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It was an okay movie, with a twist. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Horrible. That's it.
