Critic Reviews for The Forgotten
Who wants to see -- or remember -- a wildly implausible thriller that's also grim and humorless?
The climax is a disappointment, lacking the quick visual thrills earlier in the movie and failing to answer many key questions raised throughout.
Not since Star Trek V: The Final Frontier has there been such a stupid omnipotent force.
Audience Reviews for The Forgotten
A very twilight zonish plot with an interesting combination of twists and turns. Not bad not great.
Julianne Moore is a mother who misses her dead son, which is normal ... until everyone she knows starts to tell her that she never had one. As the story shifts from psychological thriller into the unknown, the fantastic, well, it loses its way, but the actors are still good.
I loved the first half...the pacing especially. The film follows a women who is grieving over the loss of her son, and then during that process, she's informed that her son didn't exist. The plot progressed nicely and was aided by the solid performances by Julianne Moore and Dominic West. Then there was sudden shift about 3/4's of the way through the film where it just all went down hill. The plot got really confusing, and then the ending was like...wtf. Overall, a decent and entertaining film, but I was slightly disappointed because I thought it had potential.
