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.

"The X-Files" is long gone. Hail and farewell. But its spirit lives on in "Red Lights." Hail, hail.

If you care at all about intelligent genre cinema that doesn't paint by numbers, you've got to buy a ticket to 'Red Lights', warts and all.

Red Lights culminates with a twist ending that doesn't just change everything that came previously, it actually negates the entirety of the film.

RED LIGHTS' very subtle writing, editing, and music create a mood of uneasiness and mistrust... It's magnificently off-kilter and constantly gripping.

A chance to see whether you are a skeptic or a true believer in psychic phenomena.

Bogs down in its middle acts, losing track of the epic struggle it sets up, but rallies for a fine finale that most won't guess until it shows up

This half-clever mess of a thriller, Red Lights, gets some mileage out of its novel premise.

The journey certainly proves more rewarding than the destination, but quite a journey it is.

If it wasn't for the acting talent that his [CortÚs] latest film has attracted, Red Lights would have fallen at the first hurdle - however curious we may be at its subject matter.

Cortes lets slip a few discordant notes, notably during the overwrought - and pointlessly over-explained - finale, but for the most part Red Lights proves that his cinematic sleight of hand is spookily good.

The first hour of Red Lights is pretty good, there is a great rapport between Weaver and Murphy and enough plot development to keep you intrigued.

Ultimately suffers from excess in almost every department.

It's the kind of semi-savvy pulp nonsense that'll do if your first choice is sold out.

More slippery than it first seems, with an ending over-explained but hardly over-rationalised.

Red Lights has an interesting premise and Weaver is on top form at the start.

A solid, if a little dry, attempt at paranormal thrills.

At the end of a long night, it's an effective thriller that could have done with sticking to its strengths.
Richard Jordan
Total Film
June 11, 2012
A starry cast, curious premise and well-crafted shocks make for an ambitious thriller that ekes - and eeks - out the tension to its iffy finale.
