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.
October 10, 2008
But High Tension director Alexandre Aja's disappointingly low-tension Hollywood studio remake is a pale reflection of its Korean original.

Some credit for this stylish screamer goes to Sutherland, forming his doughy-handsome features into an emotional punchbag. More credit goes to Nemec, sowing a harvest of dark invention in the vast spaces.
October 10, 2008
On reflection, Mirrors may have been better going straight to the DVD shelf.
October 10, 2008
This lame supernatural horror screams straight-to-DVD, with little in the way of scares, but yawns aplenty.
October 10, 2008
The script fails to come up with a convincing reason for the mirrors behaving as nastily as they do, and the final twist is effective only if you don't, as it were, reflect upon it.
October 10, 2008
There's a crippling sense of familiarity about the whole shebang that no one seems remotely bothered about fixing. Let's hope they all get seven years bad luck.
October 10, 2008
Entertaining dross, but could be another seven year's bad luck for Keifer's big screen career.
October 10, 2008
Kiefer Sutherland's bad days in 24 are frolics in the park next to the nonsense he endures in this scandalously poor supernatural horror.
October 10, 2008
The remake retains the sensationally creepy ending and it's all reasonably done, but no real chills.
October 10, 2008
There are a few effectively grisly moments, but no really new ideas.
October 10, 2008
It's not the worst entry in Hollywood's catalogue of Asian horror remakes, but is Aja's most disappointing film to date.
October 10, 2008
This is without question the dumbest horror movie of recent years. There is simply no way to piece together its fractured shards.
October 10, 2008
The main problem with Mirrors is its truly clunky screenplay, which fails to support the often stylish visuals.
October 9, 2008
Not since Star Wars' furry Chewbacca has a male screen character made as much pointless noise as Kiefer Sutherland - either in this movie or as Jack Bauer in 24.
September 11, 2008
An ultimately uninteresting work that serves as a potential low point for one of the more promising genre filmmakers in recent times
September 1, 2008
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.
August 30, 2008
Mirrors is a minor success, meaning it's a pretty big failure as well.
August 29, 2008
The ground zero for ghosts here is a burned-out luxury New York department store, making this yet another thriller with post-9/11 associations.
