Let Me In Reviews

Will Chadwick
We Got This Covered

Let Me In has a muddled storyline that never quite finds its focus. Every element here is just not as good as it was in the original, making this another pointless remake.

Fails to add anything to set it apart and there's no reason to prefer this to the fine Swedish original.

It's called Let Me In. That demanding title says something about how the gentle poetry of the original gets lost a bit in Reeves' translation.

The American version of a beloved Swedish vampire tale comes with an irritating sense of déjà vu.

Unnecessary remake that replicates rather than originates, neither truly scary nor even mildly disturbing. Surprisingly poor special effects and the neutering of a big plot point negate any potential.

A striking picture to study, but a blunt, condensed take on the source material, sacrificing an unsettling sense of macabre harmony to keep elements blocky enough so they might be appreciated by a wide, profitable audience.

I simply cannot admire what Reeves does with the remake. The best I can do is commend his skill at imitating the original.

...for audiences who have had the pleasure of seeing "Let The Right One In," this version doesn't improve on its source material.

Reeves' direction is a subdued, safe, clean -- and a bit boring.

There's a human tragedy somewhere here -- but aggrandized puppy-love romance and stylish revenge fantasy is all that lingers.

The Swedish original, Let the Right One In, was blanched, spooky and sombre. This remake by Matt Cloverfield Reeves misses almost everything.

This American remake of 2008's small Swedish gem is a valiant effort but rarely evokes the eerie essence of the original.

Strips away the soul and the vision until it's butchered its source material as badly as the recent Nightmare on Elm Street remake.

Writer/director Matt Reeves wants to make Let Me In a moody, sullen shocker with a touch of romance tossed in, but boring is a better term for it all.

Certainly well-made on its own, its adherence to almost being a direct copy of the beloved original with a few crucially damaging changes ultimately reveal this to be rather pointless for those already initimately familiar with it.

It's an honorable attempt, but there's still no genuine need for this film to exist.

The language has been changed to English, of course, which is the only real reason this movie exists; the story development, desolate tone, and key set pieces are mostly copied from the original movie.

Bloodless, compared to the Swedish original.

The result, though no less creepy than the Swedish film, mislays its lyricism and otherworldliness.
