If it isn't the original's equal, The Manchurian Candidate conjures up an air of menace sufficient to make most modern thrillers look like romantic comedies.

Strikes me as a very artful cover -- about the cleverest imaginable transliteration of the story from its historical moment to ours.

Far from a disgrace, but it's not freewheeling enough, not strange enough to make sense of our gathering dread.

A rather decent imitation in the end with political subtext and very good performances.

It is as shocking now as it was forty years ago, but nothing in the 2004 version approaches that level of intensity, intelligence, or audacity.

This humorless and nonsensical update of The Manchurian Candidate - a total misread of Frankenheimer's classic original - never quite engages, devolving the original's camp and satire into self-serious melodrama.

Sleek remake is more violent than original.

Demme's direction is as punctilious as it was in Silence of the Lambs, careful with details and craftsmanlike with storytelling -- although we do have to work a bit to stay on top of things.

Demme serves the picture completely.

Following a dozen years of docs, light comedy, and p.c. weepies, Candidate represents Demme's best dramatic filmmaking since The Silence of the Lambs.
