This is without question the dumbest horror movie of recent years. There is simply no way to piece together its fractured shards.

The director, Alexandre Aja, knows how to reflect the fear in people's heads, but he gets too ensnared in a backstory that's just gothic business as usual.

An empty enterprise that provides a few moments of goofy fun, Mirrors reflects back nothing.

Mirrors is too lugubrious and misconceived to reflect the talent of those involved.

A minor chiller and major downer from the talented Alexandre Aja.

Alexandre Aja keeps the suspense tight for most of the movie, only to fritter it away in an overblown ending.

This remake of a South Korean movie ultimately provides fewer scares than the average aging baby boomer feels every time they look into a reflective surface.

At nearly two hours, Mirrors is overlong for a summer horror toss-off, and the movie's three or four false endings make it seem even more of a haul.

Alexandre Aja's inability to delineate credible or interesting characters results in 110 wasted minutes for anyone unfortunate to wander into an auditorium where this is playing.

[Aja's] pedal-to-the-metal intensity only serves to heighten the film's fundamental ridiculousness.

Mirrors reflects little beyond Splat Pack auteur Alexandre Aja's desire to push his genre into less punishing and more profitable territory.
