Critic Reviews for The Messenger

All Critics (18) | Top Critics (4) | Fresh (6) | Rotten (12)

  • A downbeat, rainy, British spin on The Sixth Sense, this has good performances but an uncertain tone.

    September 23, 2015 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…
  • Do we really need a "gritty" British version of The Sixth Sense?

    September 17, 2015 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…
  • Sheehan's crazed temperament and beatific face sustain the ambiguity when little else does.

  • Not a single fresh idea, nor the faintest glimmer of hope that something smart is around the corner.

    Top Critic
  • A missed opportunity for exploration of the relationship between mental illness and the supernatural.

    February 28, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The plot is a meandering mess that drags painfully through the paper thin premise, and then ends just when it starts to get interesting.
