A Cure For Wellness (2017)
Critic Consensus: A Cure for Wellness boasts a surfeit of visual style, but it's wasted on a derivative and predictable story whose twists, turns, and frights have all been more effectively dealt before.

Critic Reviews for A Cure For Wellness
[The] poor ending felt like a betrayal, since it wrenches A Cure for Wellness fully out of its original genre and into melodrama.
Verbinski inflates a story ready-made for a brisk Gothic shocker into a bloated, self-important mess.
Somewhere around the middle of the film, one begins to realize it probably isn't going any place worthwhile.
At 90 minutes it could have been an eerie, tricky, well-crafted thriller. At two hours its wheels start to fall off. And then it continues to limp along for another 30 minutes, after which you wonder what the point of it all was in the first place.
Seems to last forever and, when it finally ends, leaves a sour aftertaste of overproduced, overblown schlock.
Audience Reviews for A Cure For Wellness
A Cure for Wellness is most certainly not going to be for everyone. It's spectacularly, deliberately, uncomfortably ugly (albeit, in a bizarrely beautiful way). It's story is flawed, it's long (two and a half hours all told), it's slow, some of its setups don't evolve into payoffs, it's not half as mysterious or clever as it might think it is, and it can't even hold to its own mythology 100%. But I loved it.
The visuals are stunning, but the movie is too long and messy in terms of ideas or whatever it wants to say, to the point that it doesn't make any sense and seems more like an amalgam of a lot of things that worked infinitely better in other movies (like Shutter Island).
A little bit too long... but still an overall pretty good movie.
