One of the better films of the infamous J-horror remake onslaught. Relatively speaking.

Even the most forgiving fans of supernatural horror will balk at Mirrors' cookie-cutter characterizations, predictable shocks, and ridiculous, punishing plot.

Kudos to you if you can figure out what in god's name that ending is supposed to indicate, because I'm lost at this time...

Sutherland's natural stoicism does make the more risible developments and dialogue a bit easier to stomach (a moment when he goes all Jack Bauer on a nun comes to mind).

Alexandre Aja must have thought that just because he's basing a film around mirrors acting irrationally, he can proceed to remove logic from all aspects of the film.

Clunky dialogue sets up the film, unlikely backstory drives it along, and it all concludes in a ludicrous cataclysm of cinematic hyperbole.

As Joe Bob Briggs used to say: "too much plot gets in the way of the story."

...often far more entertaining than it has any right to be.

I love a good horror movie, and this offered something different from slasher remakes and zombie flicks.

In SUSPIRIA, Udo Kier says that "Bad luck isn't caused by broken mirrors, but by broken minds"-Well after making this silly movie, director Alexandre Aja might think otherwise

When we should be feeling fascinated by the unfolding mystery and creeped out by things acting up nastily, we instead find ourselves thinking too much and asking questions.
| Original Score: 65/100

Jack Bauer can disarm nuclear weapons without breaking a sweat, but he apparently can't locate a script worthy of his real-life alter ego.

Faint praise alert! Mirrors is nowhere near as bad as the initial reviews - and poor box office - portend.

In the end, the story fizzles out, with the second stanza bordering on the downright farcical.
Leigh Paatsch
Daily Telegraph (Australia)
November 7, 2008
The unfeasibly large number of scenes where Sutherland must swap lines with the title characters makes the wait to get to the good stuff feel like an eternity.

An unexpected twist elevates this well constructed supernatural thriller whose chilling concepts and vivid imagery make it a scary experience.
Matthew Turner

Despite some creepy scenes and superb special effects, Mirrors is let down by a ludicrous script and some dodgy acting, though it remains watchable on a so-bad-it's-good level.

Te story is efficient but strangely uninvolving and not nearly as scary as the Korean version.
| Original Score: 2/5
