This brave undertaking is surely not aimed at the masses, and may be destined to be a cult title in an otherwise worn thin genre.

Red Lights remains interesting throughout, but by the end it's appealing in the same way a train wreck is.

The climax is also a touch too weighty -- a little explanation is crucial, but it goes on just a little too long. Still, Red Lights is mostly a fun example of its genre, with both jump scares and narrative surprises.

Red Lights makes for a fairly decent thriller.

De Niro! Murphy! Olsen! Weaver! With a cast this talented, we weren't expecting the outcome to be so bland.
March 14, 2013
It's crushingly disappointing when it falls apart so completely in the second half.
October 5, 2012
It almost feels like an occult thriller that has slowly transformed into a comedy -- and you didn't even notice.
September 18, 2012
Red Lights has a decent premise, but the script lets the actors down. While it has interesting twists and bucks convention, the story is just far too weak to be enjoyable.
September 5, 2012
A fun caper thinly veiled as a supernatural thriller - a mystery loaded with all the tricks and devices recently made popular by M. Night Shyamalan.
August 16, 2012
The fact that Red Lights' action doesn't operate in a recognizable universe, however, is a constant problem.
August 13, 2012
The degree to which Red Lights ultimately peters out is nothing short of spectacular...
August 10, 2012
A clever thriller, bolstered by three great performances.
August 10, 2012
The film doesn't offer the sense of release, or of surprise, that it seems to take for granted.

"The X-Files" is long gone. Hail and farewell. But its spirit lives on in "Red Lights." Hail, hail.
August 2, 2012
By strict definition, any movie featuring Robert De Niro as a spoon-bending clairvoyant superstar ought to hold a few cards up its sleeve.
August 2, 2012
It's nonsense on a plot level but played seriously without nearly enough personality or edge. Even the film's undeniably talented cast can't save it.
August 2, 2012
A lot of talent comes up empty in "Red Lights," a thriller that doesn't thrill.
August 2, 2012
With the sort of last-minute plot twist that sank M. Night Shyamalan's career, Red Lights comes to an unexpected, risible end.
August 2, 2012
By the time the film reaches its convoluted, bombastic and preposterous climax, any sense of real magic that it once conveyed has utterly vanished.
August 1, 2012
Filmed in Spain and Canada, Red Lights is limply staged and even more uninspiringly shot - everywhere looks like nowhere. The effect of all this is a total lack of emotional connection to these characters right from the start.
