Critic Reviews for The I Inside

All Critics (7)

...a talky, hopelessly convoluted would-be thriller that isn't even a little bit involving.

Reel Film Reviews

Competent directing, great acting, and a surprise ending make this a very entertaining watch.

Cinema Crazed

In a tight 87 minutes, all the pieces in the obtuse puzzle finally find their way together

Urban Cinefile

Revela-se decepcionante, limitando-se a reciclar aspectos empregados de forma mais inteligente em obras similares.

Cinema em Cena

The I Inside is a well-produced little thriller that relies almost entirely on its storytelling angle to survive and then lets us down at the finish.

It's a nice, low expectations thriller that works.

Audience Reviews for The I Inside


That is $7 and one and a half hours of my life I want back.
Boring, confusing (yes, the two can co-exist), most of this is Ryan Phililipe in a hospital, going back in time between two different events. Nothing makes sense, it seems he is losing his mind.
I just about lost mine too. With boredom.
Sarah Polley and Piper Perabo are good, but they are not in it enough.
The stupid ending made me groan out load. I have no idea if he was crazy or dead or what, and I don't really care, either.
Seldom have I been so disappointed in a movie.

What happened to Ryan's career? Another movie where the main character was really dead the whole time? maybe? maybe not? head hurts.

My predicted rating: 3.5 stars

The time travel in this film was merely between two points in time and with an added plot of memory loss this became a story revealed between the two points in time. A bit of a mind bending film with a sudden ending which left me feeling disappointed after anticipating a big twist.
