Critic Reviews for The Messenger
Not a single fresh idea, nor the faintest glimmer of hope that something smart is around the corner.
Everything's held together by an authoritative performance from Sheehan, who does fine work keeping open the question of whether the ghosts are really there or just figments of his troubled imagination.
A downbeat, rainy, British spin on The Sixth Sense, this has good performances but an uncertain tone.
Sheehan is convincing as the troubled man who has come to resent everyone around him, but in the process he makes his character so thoroughly obnoxious that it's hard to care what happens to him.
Blair works hard to maintain the requisite ambiguity by presenting multiple points of view, but the set-up and execution are too familiar and predictable to be in any way haunting.
