ReviewSource Variety
Review When a major studio release with two Oscar-winning stars opens without press previews, one assumes the distrib is trying to hide the pic from critics. In the case of Neil LaBute's remake of "The Wicker Man," however, it's entirely possible that Warners indeed wanted to conceal a ludicrous misfire from auds as well...There are times, of course, when that spectacle can be amusing. (Witness "Vampire's Kiss," for example.) In this context, however, Cage's over-emoting only makes a silly scenario seem more ridiculous...For the most part, the supporting perfs are unremarkable. (A glaring exception: Beahan's fidgety turn as the weeping Willow is remarkable for all the wrong reasons.) Paul Sarossy's lensing and Angelo Badalamenti's music suggest at least a half-hearted attempt at recapturing look and feel of '70s genre pics.

Review Ah, Neil LaBute, the writer/director who began his career with the misogynistic screed In the Company of Men continues to mine that vein with his rancid remake of 1973 cult classic The Wicker Man. While Anthony Shaffer's original novel and screenplay explored what happens when a virginal, puritan, Christian cop finds himself isolated on an island full of libidinous pagans who live by their own rituals and refuse to recognize outside laws or authority, LaBute's take on it is much more mundane...It's simply too depressing. The original Wicker Man was a lot of fun, with a wide-eyed Edward Woodward resisting Britt Ekland's come-ons and agape at the licentious behavior he spies all around him. In contrast, LaBute's rendition of the tale is heavy-handed and hysterical.

Quotes
Kyle Smith, New York Post Profoundly disturbing, blood-chilling suspenser.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly ...enough enigma and weirdness that it gradually stirs to life.
Wesley Morris, Boston Globe ...LaBute has cleverly repurposed his creepy source material.
