Jacob's Ladder

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.

All Critics (22) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (21)

  • 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.

    August 22, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It was funhouse schlock with pretensions of seriousness, but a lot of its visual ideas oozed their way into the genre gene pool.

    August 21, 2019 | Rating: C- | Full Review…
