New York Times:
A jokey sci-fi horror movie about the desperate pursuit of a vile ''thing'' from outer space.
A sleeper that talks like a thriller and walks like a thriller, but has more brains than the average thriller.
Powered by a driving rock score, this is by turns sleek, reckless, and smoothly effective, like a Ferrari with a psycho killer at the wheel.
The Hidden is a well-constructed thriller, directed with swift assurance by Jack Sholder, brought down by an utterly conventional sci-fi ending.
Its virtues are ones that you almost never encounter in movies of this sort; it's really a unique little item -- if there's such a thing as punk soulfulness, then this movie has it.
