It's crushingly disappointing when it falls apart so completely in the second half.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 5, 2012
It almost feels like an occult thriller that has slowly transformed into a comedy -- and you didn't even notice.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/5

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 5/10
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

The fact that Red Lights' action doesn't operate in a recognizable universe, however, is a constant problem.
Full Review | Original Score: 6.1/10

The degree to which Red Lights ultimately peters out is nothing short of spectacular...
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
August 10, 2012
A clever thriller, bolstered by three great performances.
Full Review | Original Score: 3.5/4

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.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.0/5.0
August 2, 2012
A lot of talent comes up empty in "Red Lights," a thriller that doesn't thrill.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
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.
Full Review | Original Score: C-
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.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5

Red Lights ends with much fury, and it only underscores how silly the whole misfortunate thing has become.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 26, 2012
One of the worst movies of this or any other year.

Cortes made "Buried," which means he has more good work to offer. Better luck next film.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/4
July 26, 2012
Hinges on a big revelation that you'll see coming a mile away and a final twist that strains to pull a fast one.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4

For its first two acts, the movie had me in its grip. Then it comes apart.
Full Review | Original Score: 2.5/4
