The makers of The Gift lay on the rustic nonsense awfully thick, peopling the tiny town of Brixton, Ga., with more 'colorful' characters than any town -- or movie -- can tolerate.

It's not wise to build a story around a psychic. If you don't believe in this stuff, the story simply will not work, ever, anyhow, any way, any time, any place.

Who would have thought Sam Raimi could have made a film in which the dead are harmless, even helpful?

It just feels like no one really even tried on this one.

Once the story chooses its path, a glance downward reveals the ruts worn by the many plot vehicles that have traveled this road before.

Stilted, obvious, and cruel... No longer an absurdist of gore, Raimi is now a reveler in it.

A disappointingly predictable psychic whodunit with a script so pedestrian it feels like an albatross around the necks of its marquee pedigree players.

A middling entry for Raimi that is, disappointingly, a conventional whodunit coupled with supernatural power.

Like getting a Crackerjacks prize in a Tiffany box.

This whodunit had many contrivances and they all sapped strength from the film's already rather weak mystery story.

You can't escape the feeling that everyone involved deserved something better.

A rather pedestrian whodunit.

Unfortunately, Raimi and Thornton -- who collaborated as director and star on the genuinely creepy A Simple Plan -- have only enough material this time to sustain half a movie.

Uneven and conventional.

[Raimi throws] half of a good movie, and Blanchett's superb performance, to the wolves of consumerism.
