Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Lewis Somoza Manalo
Remember that kid in middle school who everyone made fun of and who could never get a date? Well, he remembers you. So goes the premise of Valentine, the smart and twist-filled thriller from Urban Legend director Jamie Blanks. Based on Tom Savage's novel -- and owing much to Stephen King's Carrie -- the film finds the popular girls in a world of trouble when, thirteen years after the sixth grade, the school's scrawny geek returns as a masked killer bent on revenge. This Cupid hasn't just brought a bow and arrow, he's brought a knife too, making broken hearts the least of these girls' worries. In true teen-slash tradition, this shocking good time includes a cast of hot young stars, including brooding David Boreanaz (TV's Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel), sizzling Denise Richards, sweet Marley Shelton (Sugar & Spice), alluring Katherine Heigl (Bride of Chucky, TV's Roswell), and Jessica Cauffiel (Urban Legends: Final Cut). Each adds a fun and frightening bump to the movie's ever-twisty ride. In this Valentine, love isn't just blind -- it's deadly.
Los Angeles Times - Kenneth Turan
Valentine is a smart, stylish horror picture that offers a fresh twist on the ever-reliable revenge theme and affords a raft of talented young actors solid roles that show them to advantage.

Valentine 4.4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 10 reviews.

This is a great horror film. The reason for this being is that the farther you get into the film, the more scary and better it gets. There is also a great cast and a good twist at the end, like every horror film should have. I recommend this movie to anyone that likes horror films with good twists, and an overall great cast.

I thought the movie was petty good, mainly because it had a good twist. And the end is not confusing you just have to think about it.

When I first saw this movie, I thought the plot made no sense at all. They had a wonderful cast of young stars who could actually act but the movie itself was not what I expected. I thought it would be a bit more planned out. The end expecially confused me. Who was the killer? Dorthy or Adam? I liked the movie and the fact that it was a bit scary and the excellent cast. Not the movie itself.

Well, if you haven't seen the movie -- then you really need to!! -- then I won't spoil the ending for you. This movie was good, there were a couple of parts that made me cringe in that "oh-man-thats-gotta-hurt" way. David Boreanaz shines through once again as a sweetly evil man. His role as an alcoholic makes it even better because it adds the "i'm-never-far-away-from-being-drunk" dimension to his character. Go David!

This movie features a wonderfully talented cast, but unfortunately they have little to work with. The plot is not only lame, it's confusing as well. The only reason I gave it three stars instead of two was because of the cast, who gave good, watchable performances in spite of the inadequate script.

Great movie, great acting, great storyline, and great twist at the end.

Valentine was a cool movie. I especially liked the young actors/actresses.Though,I can understand in the movie why J.M. wanted to get rid of them.They treated him so wrong when they were young.I highly recommend this movie because it should teach people a lesson on how they should treat others.Better treat them right,'cause if you don't they just might treat you bad too,but in a more brutal way.The bad guy isn't always wrong...But the question still remains:who was the killer? We may never know.

this movie was so cool as well it was so frighten .. well but it is confusing in the end ..u know who is the killer is it adam(david boreanaz) or is it dorthy...but at the end for e i would giv this movie more than 9 stars cause while i was watching as if i was with them in the film so i really congratulate the author for this cool work and offcourse the actors for their cool acting
