Looking Glass Reviews

April 6, 2018
Despite being billed as a suspense thriller, there is zero suspense throughout, questions that are raised never answered satisfyingly, and even as it throws a twist towards the end, there are so few characters here that you just don't give a damn about.

Looking Glass wastes its talented cast on poor writing filled with clich after clich, an odd and uninviting artistic vision from the ground up, thinly developed characters, and an overabundance of narratives and plot devices.
February 20, 2018
The result is a hollow vehicle that Cage simply floats through on autopilot, and he peers through a mirror at a more exciting world beyond his grasp, it's impossible not to relate.

Nicolas Cage dials it down a few notches for a derivate thriller about strange doings at a desert motel.
February 16, 2018
The ubiquitous Cage is more understated than usual these days, which is a drawback since that consequently spotlights the uninspired film's tedious incoherence.
February 16, 2018
One can't be blamed for hoping that this combination of talents at this time might combust into something interesting.

When a subdued Nicolas Cage is the best thing about your movie, well...
February 16, 2018
[A]n exercise in seeing how many creepy elements can be added to a story without finding a way to connect them.
February 16, 2018
A sadly muted thrill-free thriller, starring a disappointingly manic-deprived Cage.
February 15, 2018
The alchemic tang of peeled-back vice and possible insanity isn't there in Jerry Rapp's plodding screenplay and director Tim Hunter's tension-challenged execution.
February 15, 2018
For Cage, it's just another quick roadside stop on a seemingly endless B-movie journey.
February 15, 2018
Nicolas Cage completists will see it, but no one else should feel obligated.
February 15, 2018
It certainly could be better, but it's mildly impressive to watch Hunter make sure it's not worse.
February 15, 2018
Even the actors' fine efforts cannot rescue Looking Glass from terminal murkiness.
February 14, 2018
Bargain basement. If it was made in the nineties would have been a routine skin-e-max programmer.
February 14, 2018
More sincere Cage fans will just sigh, take mild solace in his avoiding yet another low-rent revenge thriller, and hope for the best next time around.
February 14, 2018
There's no follow-through or follow-up on how the main character's voyeurism informs his burgeoning sexual perversions.
February 14, 2018
Voyeurism and grief are both included, but neither is meaningful in the context of what proves little more than a generic thriller built from confusion.
January 24, 2018
Generic thriller that's never engrossing enough to merit the presence of the cinema's busiest B-movie star, Nicolas Cage.
