This would be boring if it wasn't so unintentionally funny.
What we get is a mediocre remake of a mediocre original - not exactly must-see cinema.
We live in an age of unnecessary remakes - but the new Flatliners movie, by Danish director Niels Arden Oplev, has the distinction of being perhaps the most unnecessary of them all.
A fright-free fiasco. This update of a silly 1990 Julia Roberts thriller is even more witless and stupefyingly dull than the original.
A fabulous idea for a movie, but unfortunately Flatliners represents the second failed attempt to do it justice.
Audience Reviews for Flatliners
Lame, Ellen Page could not save this one. I haven't seen the original in years, but all this did was make me want to watch that one and forget I ever saw this. It's a shame, because actually the cast was decent, but it just falls flat.
A lazy, uninspired and downright stupid remake that overlooks nearly everything that made the original film clever and effective, trying too hard to be more like a horror movie (but failing ridiculously) and not bringing anything remotely clever or new to the pot.
It gets three stars purely because it scared me more than once! But the overall storyline is much to be desired!
