More concerned with loneliness in this life than anything that happens after death

Eastwood fails to infuse any moments of suspense or heart into the story and when all is said and done, Hereafter is an anticlimactic, sleepy and momentum-less mess of a film.

This movie isn't about anything. This emperor is wearing no clothes.

Clint Eastwood's late life/late career fascination with mortality, death and grieving devolves, at long last, into a cheap parlor trick in Hereafter.

Superficially satisfying but oftentimes disappointing, "Hereafter" focuses on three major stories, one of which works far better than the other two.

Before long, the afterlife starts to sound pretty damn appealing.

Thankfully, there is light at the end of the tunnel. Just don't expect any grand revelations before the curtain falls.

...The filmmakers choose a period setting for their film, then dispense with it part way into the story, once it's become a hindrance to the interests of the corporate sponsors...

June 1, 2011 engaging, sporadically enthralling drama that ranks as one of Eastwood's better efforts as of late.

Earnestly heartfelt all the way, this movie goes bonkers right out of the gate and doesn't let up until the final shot of Damon having a vision of his own future, so don't worry if you find yourself giggling.

Hereafter can't quite make up its mind what it is exactly about, resulting in a film that builds and builds and builds ... to nothing.

Dull and unmoving, Hereafter offers little more than cop out resolutions to its supernatural themes, and a lack of testicular fortitude in its refusal to utter the words "Heaven" or "God".

What is terrific about Eastwood is that he has a real cleanness in his approach to filmmaking and there isn't this claptrap of sentimentality surrounding it.

In the end, an elevating and in many ways, exceptional experience.

Hereafter is worth taking seriously because, finally, it's about taking care to live decently -- not piously, or proudly, but honestly, in the here and now.
