Though its pieces don't quite congeal into a streamlined narrative, Gore Verbinski's shift away from swashbuckling adventures and back to gothic horror is a welcome sight.

Thanks to a screenplay that features a multitude of superfluous scenes and a twist that anyone could guess by the halfway mark, the result is an extremely plodding, meandering, and lengthy film that fails to leave any impact.

For a film to make us wait 130 minutes before revealing its twist only to be underwhelming has committed an unforgivable sin.

No menacing corridor goes unexplored and no mood is left unteased in this glossily atmospheric thriller where the 1 per cent have their own issues to worry about.
March 15, 2017
If Verbinski had brought pace, the film might have worked, but he takes an eternity, then throws it all to the winds with a finale that's remarkable silly, even in this fanciful neck of the woods.
March 15, 2017
At a health-unconscious running time of 146 minutes and with scripting prone to bouts of short-term amnesia, some viewers won't need a second opinion to write the whole thing off as a sick joke.

By the time we get to the third act you'll have either given up or be rapt in the film's sheer lurching madness
March 14, 2017
[One] of the most distasteful and obnoxious studio offerings in recent memory.

[A Cure For Wellness] doesn't just stretch the limits of plausibility, it punches plausibility in the guts, pushes it into a river and waves goodbye.
March 5, 2017
A CURE FOR WELLNESS is so grotesque; it's Gothic horror gone awry...
March 3, 2017
An absurdly over-long run time allows the film to keep on answering questions that we never asked.
February 28, 2017
[The film is] notable in its own flaky, freaky way, its visual peaks and narrative valleys neatly summing up the bizarro career of its director.
February 26, 2017
All the style and slithering horror is not enough to glue together a plot that favours atmosphere over coherence and overstays its welcome by at least 30 minutes.
February 24, 2017
A very big and pitiful disappointment if you take into account all the potential that had. [Full review in Spanish]
February 24, 2017
A film that aspires to explore the complexities of guilt, power, dominance, paranoia, incest, illness, health and aging, but by doing so within the strategies of horror, it confuses its purposes and gets lost in the path. [Full review in Spanish]
February 24, 2017
[The] poor ending felt like a betrayal, since it wrenches A Cure for Wellness fully out of its original genre and into melodrama.
February 24, 2017
Ominous signs and psychological detours get tossed out and tossed away on the path to ridiculous gothic nonsense that takes itself far too seriously.
February 24, 2017
One can only imagine that, given that there's little gore or sex, the restricted entry level is designed to protect younger viewers from the deeply upsetting feelings of frustration and irritation that emerge once it becomes clear that nothing is working.
February 24, 2017
A misguided and often intolerable trainwreck...
February 24, 2017
Unanswered questions pile up, until only one remains. Could this be the stupidest third act EVER?
