Reviews


100
Washington Post - Stephen Hunter
But [Raimi]'s instructed his fabulous Style to take a hike, and, working from Scott Smith's brilliantly reconfigured script from Smith's own (much darker) novel, delivers a piece that is severe and disciplined in its evocation of the cold terrors of fate.
100
Washington Post - Michael O'Sullivan
With elegant, clockwork construction, Smith has transplanted his novel of greed, betrayal and getting what you deserve to the screen, where it is told by director Sam Raimi with a spareness befitting the whiteness of its snowed-in setting.

Entertainment Weekly - Owen Gleiberman
Lean, elegant, and emotionally complex -- a marvel of backwoods classicism.

The New York Times - Elvis Mitchell
When you get the shivers watching this wintry tale unfold, it won't be from the cold.

Village Voice - J. Hoberman
As straightforward in narrative as it is gut-wrenching in effect, A Simple Plan is a sort of slow-motion skid down an icy blacktop— it's a movie you watch with a mounting sense of dread...[It's] an extremely credible thriller and an affecting brother-story.
