Be grateful for the genuine amusement Dead Again supplies. It may be cotton candy, but it's well spun.
January 16, 2013
Branagh's contemporary American accent is annoying, and the film's constant inter-cutting of past and present lives becomes laughable.
October 25, 2010
As the twists come thick and fast and the plot gets progressively more and more baroque, Branagh shows himself to be at least as intelligent as Brian De Palma in delivering over-the-top stylistic filigree.

Director and star Kenneth Branagh brings the same zest and bravura style to this actors' romp of a mystery-thriller as he did to Henry V.
January 26, 2006
Branagh's lame stab at a romantic psychological thriller makes no sense.
May 20, 2003
A big, convoluted, entertainingly dizzy romantic mystery melodrama. It's also another coup de cinema for Mr. Branagh.

His film is both a good mystery movie and a good movie-movie; its sheer "movieness" is what gives the picture its kick. As his career progressed, Branagh may very well have made better films than 'Dead Again.' But he never made another one this fun.

Logic is dull and all that jazz. What isn't dull, though, is the way Branagh as a director attacks this material.
August 31, 2011
It's a restless yet highly organized effort, displaying the director's desire to not just passively assemble a movie, but to rattle the senses as well.
October 25, 2010
The mixture of gritty noir and supernatural shenanigans sits uneasily, but the film may simply be too bizarre to work at all.
October 25, 2010
It straddles a fine line between genius and folly.

Dead Again is a truly enjoyable popcorn movie, even if it is ultimately total nonsense.
