This film is a bit slow to begin with an then suddenly leaps into a story which becomes a lil bonkers. Just go with it as its different and it keeps you gripped. The film is about an experiment and as the movie goes on things become stranger but in a good way. It feels like watching the Adjustment Bureau. The ending is a bit odd as it leaves you with questions you want answered.

The idea of her trying to find her missing 8-year old son was interesting, but when aliens got involved the story took a nosedive.

Whatever said by anybody, this movie is good as any classic thriller.

Pretty sure this is the second time I've watched this film and I still didn't really understand what was going on. It has a bit of a top notch cast of experienced US TV character actors and bizarrely Julianne Moore (I imagine her agent was sacked shortly afterwards). None of them can make head nor tail of the preposterous 'X-Files'-lite plot either.

One of the most stupid and awful films I have ever encountered.

Full of mystery and intrigue, The Forgotten is a suspenseful psychological thriller that kind of goes off the rails. The story follows a grieving mother who lost her son in a plane crash, but soon all evidence of her son's existence is erased, leaving her to question her sanity and desperate to prove that he was real. Julianne Moore gives a fairly good performance, as does Gary Sinise. Additionally, the storytelling does an impressive job at building up the mystery of the missing child. But the ending is completely ridiculous and comes out of nowhere. A rather pointless and inane film, The Forgotten fails to payoff its mystery and insults the audience with nonsensical tripe.

Alku vaikutti lupaavalta, mutta loppujen lopuksi leffa oli ihan liian utopistinen ja outo... (Suom. Unohdetut)

The most needlessly convoluted M. Night Shyamalan-esk movie Shyamalan never made but with a few redeemable good performances.

The Forgotten is a well-made and well-acted film that requires you to either disengage your brain or play along. If you can then it is an enjoyable film, in spite of an unrealistic plot. Julianne Moore great to watch, as always, and there are a few nice dramatic effects. Fans of paranormal thrillers should enjoy this one.

Really good story line. I did not like the science fiction aspect to it though. Could really have done without that....those parts were just weird.

Makes no sense and does the impossible....make Moore look really bad.

The forgotten wastes Julianne Moore's skilled work with a premise far too ridiculously silly topped off by an even more egregious twist.
½ July 11, 2015
Based on a true notion. A true premise.

Julianne Moore, I love you but I HATE that you chose to star in this movie. The Forgotten is an incoherent episode of The X-Files that just grows dumber and dumber and dumber. Dominic West is terrible as Moore's sidekick who likes to beat people up. This is a nice premise executed badly.

An X-file type story except there is is no Mulder or Scully except for the underdying motherly love of Julliane Moore to save mother earth from the Aliens. This was an improvement of the TV series because we saw the booming sudden abduction of unsuspecting humans.

Grossly convoluted and dreadfully boring.
½ October 20, 2014
Quite an ironic title, isn't it?

God, this movie made so little sense at times...

Amazing. Moore was great as always.
