Walaupun masih terdapat kesalahan kecil di adegannya dan suka bertele-tele dalam penceritaanya. Film ini memiliki atmosfer yang sangat baik untuk sebuah film mystery-horror. Serta memiliki konklusi yang gila yang akan menjadi sesuatu yang paling diingat dari film ini (7/10)
When you see 'The Ring', you know you're in for visual treat from Gore Verbinski. And so does with 'A Cure For Wellness'. It's technically competent and has some nice thrills or eerie moments. Alas, the film's overlong plot is borderline ridiculous. In the end, you can't help but wonder what's really the point of such elaborated frenzy?
there is a great retro homage somewhere in here... the AIP and Amicus vibe, a sense of an old Vincent Price 60s classic, a dash of Hammer. a touch of Mario Bava... problem is the film builds to a great climax and conclusion that just doesn't deliver. a bit overlong, and for such a gorgeously lensed film and wonderful production design, it really deserved a great script. which is nowhere to find here...
This is bad to the core. What starts with a certain amount of intrigue then falls in a quick downward spiral to a nonsensical crap with no valid metaphor nor argumental point. This is what happens when you think a lot of money and a lot of "ambient" can actually make a good movie. No, they don't. You actually need to know how to write stories, you know. Please, don't waste your time.
It starts off brilliantly. The setting is perfect, the story is gripping. However I found it way too long. The flashbacks are questionable and the ending bit did not work for me. I would have loved if the movie resisted the temptation to give in to yet another final "match" between the hero and the "monster". The scariest monster in horrors is the one who does not need to look like one.
