Let Me In Reviews

Let Me In is not so much a film in its own right as a watered-down digest for Anglophones too stupid or too lazy to read subtitles.
April 28, 2015
An awful lot of trouble to go to just because some people don't like reading subtitles.
October 14, 2014
Let Me In doesn't need to exist unless, that is, the very notion of Swedish cinema is strange and unpalatable to you.
November 9, 2013
Let Me In has a muddled storyline that never quite finds its focus. Every element here is just not as good as it was in the original, making this another pointless remake.
October 7, 2013
The result, though no less creepy than the Swedish film, mislays its lyricism and otherworldliness.

Reeves deserves praise for not ruining the story, for treating it and the genre with respect and care, but he can't quite make the case that his remake is warranted.

Another month, another teen vampire flick.
November 4, 2010
I'm surprised Let Me In has received mostly enthusiastic reviews, for it is a dim-witted Hollywood remake of the acclaimed 2008 Swedish film Let The Right One In.
November 4, 2010
The Swedish original, Let the Right One In, was blanched, spooky and sombre. This remake by Matt Cloverfield Reeves misses almost everything.
October 15, 2010
Fails to add anything to set it apart and there's no reason to prefer this to the fine Swedish original.
October 3, 2010
Unnecessary remake that replicates rather than originates, neither truly scary nor even mildly disturbing. Surprisingly poor special effects and the neutering of a big plot point negate any potential.
October 3, 2010
Reeves' direction is a subdued, safe, clean -- and a bit boring.
October 1, 2010
I simply cannot admire what Reeves does with the remake. The best I can do is commend his skill at imitating the original.
October 1, 2010
It's called Let Me In. That demanding title says something about how the gentle poetry of the original gets lost a bit in Reeves' translation.
October 1, 2010
The American version of a beloved Swedish vampire tale comes with an irritating sense of déjà vu.
October 1, 2010
Certainly well-made on its own, its adherence to almost being a direct copy of the beloved original with a few crucially damaging changes ultimately reveal this to be rather pointless for those already initimately familiar with it.
October 1, 2010
Writer/director Matt Reeves wants to make Let Me In a moody, sullen shocker with a touch of romance tossed in, but boring is a better term for it all.
October 1, 2010
Let Me In wants to make your flesh crawl, and it probably will. But it's unlikely to ever get under anyone's skin, the way Let the Right One In did.
September 30, 2010
Bloodless, compared to the Swedish original.
September 30, 2010
...for audiences who have had the pleasure of seeing "Let The Right One In," this version doesn't improve on its source material.
