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.
| Original Score: 2/4

Not since Star Trek V: The Final Frontier has there been such a stupid omnipotent force.

The Forgotten, though not an outright bad movie, is yet another frustrating example of a Hollywood film that simply lacks the courage of its convictions.

Starts out as a psychological drama and gets a whole lot weirder as it goes along.

What the father-son bond was to Frequency… mother love is to The Forgotten, a "Twilight Zone" / "X-Files"-esque thriller with a pro-life twist.

*Rarely has so much cinematic stuff -- star power, special effects, set design -- gone on in the service of something so evanescent and feathery.

Unusual mix of drama and science fiction, masquerading as a horror film.

... [Julianne Moore] is the heart and soul that lifts The Forgotten from direct-to-video fare and into something genuinely interesting.

Goes from figuratively to literally sucking as characters mysteriously go flying into the sky.

Two films in one - a mad rollercoaster thriller in the cinema, and a more subtle psychodrama in your head afterwards.

La frustración proviene de ver un pésimo abordaje de lo que originalmente fue una buena idea que contaba además con una estupenda actriz.

Lurking beneath is an equally creepy sense of latent antagonism now, between Mom and the State when it comes to possession rights over human offspring.

The more you understand what's really going on, the less you like it.

O que tinha tudo para se transformar em um thriller psicológico de primeira acabou assumindo a forma de um filme B pouco inspirado.

Cool idea. Realized pretty darned well, with some faults. In the "M. Night Shyamalan" genre.

[W]hy dramatize your premise when you can blow the windows out of an abandoned warehouse instead?
