What to know

critics consensus

A needless remake that quickly loses sight of the themes that elevated the original, this is a Jacob's Ladder that leads straight to nowhere. Read critic reviews

Critic Reviews for Jacob's Ladder

All Critics (23) | Top Critics (8) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (22)

  • This reimagining is more focused on paranoia and the relationship between Jacob and Isaac than it is creating a terrifying metaphor for PTSD, and the horror element is largely forgotten. It doesn't really offer any depth beyond that, either.

    August 23, 2019 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Only the commitment from the always-solid Michael Ealy saves it from being one of the worst movies of the year.

    August 23, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • The new "Jacob's Ladder" plays like a half-hearted sketch of the movie it could have been.

    August 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The new "Jacob's Ladder" is less strange and scary, and more mindlessly action-packed. It doesn't feel like a dream. It's more like hearing a stranger describe a dream.

    August 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A shabby, low-rent thriller with a few vaguely interesting ideas and an ensemble that deserves better material.

    August 22, 2019 | Full Review…
  • As the plot moves forward, it loses interest in the metaphysical torment that made the original so gripping.
