Considering the poor reviews and how fast it went through the theaters, I had expected this movie to be much worse than it was. This movie suffers too much from viewer nostalgia, where viewers' preference for the original movie causes many to be unfairly critical. I saw it on Halloween, choosing this movie to avoid a crowd. It was scary as hell, much moreso than I had expected. Though I liked the original better, there are some things I liked better about this movie: 1. Small mistakes with tremendous consequences: Each of the characters is haunted by a small mistake they made which <more>
resulted in enormous consequences for other people. In each case, the character knew the risk they were taking, but they took it anyway. For instance, the star was a young teen driver who checked a text message and, in the process, wound up killing her passenger. This is the perfect movie to warn viewers and the screenwriter clearly expected young viewers never to take risks even if the risk seems small when the consequences are large. Also, the sex fiend is haunted by more than just a hundred women acting jilted. He's haunted by what would be the actual consequence: a former girlfriend now struggling to raise his child.2. Forgiveness doesn't come easy. In the first movie, the characters are easily forgiven, but in this movie, minor mistakes result in the death of other people. Though the killing was unintentional, how forgiving would you truly be of somebody whose negligence caused your death? This movie forces us to truly consider that, and to see things from the perspective of the poor victims who lost everything due to careless negligence. The movie teaches the importance of being careful, especially when engaging in potentially fatal activities.3. Special effects. They definitely did what they could to truly put you there, which was part of the reason it was so, so freaky. Don't watch this movie while alone. Though I'm not a big fan of scary, those who are will love this movie.
Stop comparing this to the original! Great horror flick! (by TheTopDawgCritic)
Wow you wannabe critics can't be pleased. If it was or wasn't similar to the original, you would all still complain. How about trying to rate a movie on it's own merits?I rather enjoyed this horror flick and one of the better and more sensible ones I've seen in a while.Great story, directing and acting.I would see this again for sure. It's a well deserved 9/10 from me.
Much better than people are saying. Very good combination between sci-fi and horror (by nicolasj_gregorio)
Flatliners is about a group of students who are not satisfied with their lives and thanks to the initiative of one of them Ellen Page they find something beyond comprehension that changes their perspectives about life. The plot itself: Promising.The movie is half sci-fi, normal people trying to surpass the limit of science in a realistic way or at least tied to the ground which cannot be said about the other part, the horror one, where the movie takes another road, a supernatural one. But is interesting in it's on way and it's very well made, in my theater people were really scared. <more>
If you're willing to accept this two sides of the movie, you're enjoying it for sure.The acting is good enough. Of course Ellen does a great job and the other actors did a good performance with what they were given.So, why the bad reviews? Well, Flatliners doesn't have the best script and it has "teenager parts" but who wouldn't party after that? Anyway, this is not enough for so bad reviews. So, what is it? It's the comparison with the original one. Yes, in case you don't know, this movie is a remake of a 1990 movie. And what almost everyone is doing is comparing this new one with the oldest and it's tiring. What did I do up there? Analyze the movie I went to see to the cinema. And that's it. I don't know why they insist so much on talking about other movie.Flatliners won't change your life but it's a good enough made movie, with good acting, good plot and an excellent combination of horror and sci-fi. Go see it, ignore the critics. You'll enjoy it.
Good Acting, Intriguing Concept, however the screenplay & direction is very weak (by svhot)
"Flatliners" has a very intriguing concept being presented to viewers. However, the screenplay is very weak and that is why a lot of people who watched it did not "fully" like it. I could have written a much better story and screenplay Yes, I really mean it - literally .The basic plot revolves around a group of medical students who try to record near-death experiences by stopping their hearts for brief periods of time. During and after their "flat-lining" experience, they get flashes of sins they committed in a nightmare style. After coming back from their <more>
"temporary death", the medical students somehow become more intelligent than they were before. This concept is given no logical or scientific/ medical explanation at all. This reduces the strength and depth of the story/screenplay to a great extent.The sound, light and other special effects used in the movie are good and effective. However, these special effects have been utilized at a minimum level only. Viewers of this genre expect more thriller/horror elements when they watch such a film. Kiefer Sutherland, the only actor in this movie who has a huge fan following, has been given a tiny, cameo role only. His fans will be disappointed. I have no problem at all with the happy ending Other critics/viewers are angry that the ending was a happy one . However, the climax could have been made more interesting by creating a few unexpected twists.I would love to become a story-screenplay writer for movies because I am very creative at writing stories that will thrill and entertain viewers.

Really liked it. Had a question though. (by dillonboyer)
Loved the movie, Original was better . Wish they did more with Kiefer Sutherland, like a thing where he finds out what they were doing and goes "You think you're the first ones to do this?" or something like that. But I had a question, does anyone know what Triumph bike Jamie Drives? I'm currently in love with it but nowhere does it say what bike it is.
