What The Critics Say (Metascore 66)
- Bellevue isn’t trying to break the mold of a closed-ended mystery, but it does offer a riff on it that manages to be both cozily predictable and refreshingly contemporary. … It presents its characters with texture and range; meaning that even when it missteps, it still finds a way to make you care. — Sonia Saraiya, Variety
- It’s handsomely shot, competently directed and, when the writing allows, generally well acted. But it’s markedly derivative. … What ended up onscreen is a half-sketched, formulaic character that Ms. Paquin can only occasionally make convincing. — Mike Hale, New York Times
- Bellevue plays like a watered-down version of “The Killing.” — Rob Owen, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
