Inconsistency and listless plot make this K-horror remake a less-than-frightening time at the movies.

  • Te story is efficient but strangely uninvolving and not nearly as scary as the Korean version.

    Oct 10, 2008 | Rating: 2/5
  • The remake retains the sensationally creepy ending and it's all reasonably done, but no real chills.

  • There are a few effectively grisly moments, but no really new ideas.

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

  • at some point Aja appears to have decided that he cannot be bothered with all this remake malarkey, and instead he just goes completely ape with his plotting...could well go on to become a cult classic.

  • 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.

    Pretty good and entertaining. Sutherland literally plays the role like Jack Bauer, so it's a lot of fun to watch all the crazy stuff he does, especially once his character starts to become unhinged by the supernatural events of the story. The ending of Mirrors is pretty cool and a has a nice twist, even if it does kind of feel that story is somewhat unresolved by it.

    Kiefer Sutherland just can't get out of the 24HR Role, what ever movie you see him in you see his role as the maniac with a gun who has a badge, That being said in this movie his acting was as bad as ever but the story line of this movie was very creepy, not many movies that deal with horror bother me but this one did, I haven't looked at my reflection since. About a hotel in NYC that burned and is now guarded by private security, the mirrors left over from an hospital are possessed, spine chilling worth 4 stars for story line.

    It was fairly a decent movie but the ending made absolutely no sense at all.

    Scary but fairly original and really boring, was switching off now and again. It's ok!
