"These red lights keep moving back and forth. Aside from that, this thing seems to have no function whatsoever. It must have some function."Do yourself a favor: if you are looking for red lights, rent Airplane II instead.
Some plotholes and pacing problems were compensated with an interesting and gripping story and of course the twisted ending is good that i really didn't see it coming. Another good thriller from Cortes that will mess your perception from the beginning to the end.
This could have been a good movie, but it's killed by poor editing, generic music and some stupid moments that could easily be lifted out. Waste of a great cast, good cinematography and some nice ideas.
The first half of the film is engaging and intriguing. Things begin to get over the top but remain worthwhile if you aren't expecting realism in the slightest. The ending is oddly moving even though the tone shifts out of nowhere. An odd and flawed but ultimately worthwhile and beautifully shot film.
This is a film that I can watch multiple times and not get tired of. I very much adore Cillian Murphy and all of the films he's been in; he's a wonderful actor who has the ability to portray a variety of characters. Red Lights' take on the supernatural was a common one, although the ending had me thinking for a while afterward. In all honesty, I really did love it.
Buon inizio, con un calo verso metà e una casuta rovinosa sul finale. Contesto interessante che poteva dare buoni spunti. Molti elementi narrativi fuori luogo e forzati.Sviluppo molto prevedibile.Finale abbastanza brutto e scollegato da tutto il resto, che smonta la critica verso i falsi medium. Regia zoppicante, con un montaggio a volte un po' grezzo ed uno stile che non riesce ad appassionare.Colonna sonora anonima
The only problem I have with "Red Lights" was that it wasn't able to establish a good foundation to explore and go where it wanted to go. They've got a great cast, and an interesting plot, but sadly a story badly told. It's a shame, they seem to have prepared a good twist, but that screenplay didn't deserved it. It's a little disappointing, but enough to enjoy it.
