Don't want to spoil it, but definitely worth the price of a ticket

I am truly appreciative of how critics and bloggers have, for the most part, made an effort not to spoil the twists of this movie. I don't know how to describe it actually without giving anything away. All I will say is that it starts out one thing and ends up as another and you won't glean anything by watching the trailers & tv spots. This is Soderbergh doing DePalma doing Hitchcock. Rooney Mara will knock your socks off and both Catherine Zeta Jones and Jude Law haven't had parts this juicy in a long time. Definitely worthy of your time and the price of admission.

Soderbergh should never retire!

I am telling you now that this movie will be on my top 10 movies of the year. This movie is incredible. This whole review I’m basically just going to praise this movie so yeah if you were wondering if I liked this movie you should know from the title. I have no idea how Soderbergh does it but he makes a potentially very boring movie and makes it exciting as hell and I have loved every one of his movies so far. Rooney Mara is perfect in this movie and I can’t wait to see what she does next. Jude law is also very good and believable as a psychiatrist. Catherine zeta-Jones is fine . Channing Tatum has the smallest role and he’s good for the brief screen time he has. this movie has so many twists and turns it's really gripping and will ahve you on the edge of your seat. this movie is brilliantly shot and edited. I mean there were some shots it took me a second to realize what i was looking at so it's nice to see directors be risky and actaually try something new. i give SIDE EFFECTS a 10!

This movie is full of twists and turns. It plays out like a murder thriller, but it's so much more than that. There's a great deal of attention placed on the drug industry and the pills they push knowing that there are deadly side effects. However, there are several layers at play. Is someone trying to exploit those weaknesses in the drug industry to get away with murder? There are subtle hints throughout and plenty of shocking revelations. Jude Law is terrific, but Channing Tatum has a minor role and is only in the first quarter of the film.
