Great trailer, bad movie. [Full review in Spanish].

Devil isn't really scary, the acting stinks, and it's not that clever, but you can rest knowing that the culprit isn't a hand puppet.

Devil features nothing new, exciting or suspenseful. Instead, it gives us shallowly developed characters and an ultimately forgettable story.

M. Night Shyamalan at his most messianic -- he just takes too long to get to the frights.
September 23, 2012
It always makes me apprehensive to see a movie that was not screened for critics in advance. "Devil" looked like it could have been an interesting film, but [it turns out] the lack of faith was justified.

Although it doubtless will find more success in the DVD market, on the big screen Devil makes for bland viewing.

Nonsensical to the point that every element doesn't hold up to the least bit of scrutiny.

This movie's job was to whip up a little fear and/or suspense, but it must have escaped through a crack in the elevator doors.
April 4, 2011
Circling wildly within the film's main set -- a stalled elevator car -- or hurtling up and down an empty shaft, Mr. Fujimoto's camera is as giddy as a tween at a Justin Bieber concert.

Un ejercicio de suspenso sobrenatural bastante efectivo, sobre todo en su primera parte, aunque lleno de lugares comunes más bien irritantes. Y, sobre todo, con la reiterada pretensión evangelizadora que inunda el cine de M. Night Shyamalan...

[M]ost of its promise is squandered through inept scripting and a failure to indulge a self-aware enthusiasm for its B-movie concept.

The movie has Shyamalan all over it - and not in a good way.
December 1, 2010
I'm not sure which sentence sounds more like the set up for a joke: 'Five people walk into an elevator...' or 'A new film from the mind of M. Night Shyamalan'.
November 30, 2010
Despite a terrific premise and strong performances, this chiller is let down by its ineffective build-up and trite conclusion.
November 26, 2010
O problema de Shyamalan não reside exatamente na espiral de mediocridade na qual mergulhou nos últimos dez anos, mas em acreditar que a inteligência de seu público afundou ao lado de seu discernimento.

It’s possible the devil is at work here, if it’s a demonic plan to damn movie audiences to a purgatory of boredom.
September 30, 2010
Because the prospect of being trapped in an elevator is so naturally frightening for many of us, 'Devil' obviously underachieves.

Any fan of detective fiction will tell you that for a locked-room drama to work, you can't let anyone, including the reader, exit the locked room.
