REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Not quite bad, but it's not recommended either.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

“..unfortunately, the greater scope and an affirmative shift in the conclusion of Red Lights hasn't consequently contributed to a greater power, for everywhere the film is pocked with holes through which a first-drafty wind blows..”
by Nick Pinkerton [Village Voice]
“..the film looks good but has a sense of self-importance that makes it all the easier for it to sink of its own weight..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]
0.5 of 5

“..the climactic twist fails to shake you out of your stupor; so confused and clumsy is its presentation that one of the characters has to keep explaining ... and explaining ... what just happened..”
by Kathleen Murphy [MSN Movies]
“..starts out with an almost uncountable number of stupid presuppositions, without even counting the one about psychic powers possibly being authentic..”
by Andrew O'Hehir [Salon.com]

“..one of the most preposterous and incoherent films of 2012..”
by Lou Lumenick [New York Post]

“..it's mystifying how such a muddled and silly movie drew the talented cast it did..”
by Claudia Puig [USA Today]
Review rate : B-

“..half-clever mess of a thriller..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
“..by constantly undermining the suspension of disbelief it so tenuously struggles to maintain, this otherwise slick pic could require reshoots to restore it to something commercial crowds are willing to take seriously..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
1.5 of 4

“..a loud and often hysterical mess, a silly seance of a movie full of jumping tables and exploding light bulbs but minus anything approaching consistent characters or decent dialogue..”
by Stephen Whitty [Newark Star-Ledger]

LATEST REVIEWS

HOME :

“..Home doesn't stand out as fresh or particularly funny. There are stretches that feel flat..”
by Linda Barnard [Toronto Star]

GET HARD :

“..Hart and Ferrell may not be Pryor and Wilder, but they score several laughs in this slim comedy..”
by Rafer Guzman [Newsday]

ELECTRIC SLIDE :

“..lazy and contrived retread can ever hope to be..”
by Rodrigo Perez [The Playlist]

NED RIFLE :

“..Ned Rifle is top notch quirk and really exciting to watch..”
by Mike Shutt [Rope of Silicon]

SERENA :

“..while the story falls a bit into melodrama, that can't chop away at the solid drama the stars and director build beautifully..”
by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News]

WHILE WE'RE YOUNG :

“..in While We're Young, writer-director Noah Baumbach gets hold of a good satirical premise and does halfway well by it, maybe even two-thirds..”
by David Edelstein [Vulture]

NIGHTLIGHT :

“..it's all very familiar in that Blair Witch kind of way, with neither the characters nor situations proving remotely interesting..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]

WHITE GOD :

“..the way director Kornel Mundruczo got Body and Luke to run the gamut of emotions from face-licking adorableness to teeth-baring killers baying for blood is genuinely impressive..”
by Cath Clarke [Time Out London]

APARTMENT TROUBLES :

“..a nearly laughless comedy that doesn't do its writer/director/stars any favors..”
by Roger Moore [Movienation]

DEAD RISING: WATCHTOWER :

“..has some recognizable stars, but they are trapped in a slim story padded with lots and lots of flesh-eating..”
by Neil Genzlinger [NY Times]
