We watch Chloe Grace Moretz's epic meltdown from a bored distance, until the drama remembers its lost calling as a disease-of-the-week movie. At that point, we receive the abrupt news of a cure with an indifferent shrug.
It's the sort of role for which the Razzies were invented, and what little audience it finds will almost certainly be heckling as they watch Moretz implode.
As the drama ramps up, we're stuck firmly in dreary TV movie territory and Moretz starts to struggle with the challenges of the role.
Brain on Fire is like a virus itself, trying to infect an otherwise interest story with its own mediocre movie clichés.
Brain condition ravages young reporter's life; swearing.
Despite its best efforts... Brain on Fire is a 90-minute shrug.
Moretz's least subtle, least empathetic performance.
This one falls short on pretty much every level, from the acting to the pacing to the tone. It's the kind of movie that does a billion little irritating things that add up to something worse.
"Fire" isn't hardcore journalism or even effective melodrama, remaining in a tedious T.V. movie holding pattern where crisis is everything and character is simplified to help connect the dots.
One of those rare films that help spread awareness of a disease which many wouldn't have heard of.
The medical misfire Brain On Fire is based on a true story and apparently its producers thought this was sufficient reason to breathe life into the project. It is not.
The true-life medical drama is less likely to bring awareness to a very rare autoimmune disorder than it is to be consumed as a low-rent imitator of Safe, Todd Haynes' 1995 parable.
