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

A terrific, albeit dreary, character drama that directly addresses one of humanity's most enduring mysteries.

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

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

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.

An unusual but absolutely absorbing work which bravely tackles the big questions with thoughtfulness and real emotion.

With Eastwood stubbornly determined to make one of the quietest films you'll ever see and Matt Damon restrained like never before, the Hereafter could either leave you thinking...or seriously underwhelmed.

This is a consoling, romantic, inspirational movie in the mid-1940s manner of Portrait of Jennie and A Guy Named Joe.

A thoughtful and sensitive work, and while it may not convince the sceptics that there is something hereafter, it offers something to think about.

Clint Eastwood is the master storyteller, allowing the story to glide as smoothly as silk transcending time and place to hone from the big picture to the individual story

Not his finest, but that's proof of how great this man is.

It thoughtfully reflects on how deep sorrow and melancholy can change existence, with both Damon and de France really making their performances count.

It remains watchable in spite of some rum narrative and performances from kids that woudn't get them a gig as extras on Byker Grove.
