I spent most of the movie saying, "okay, that is just not how academia works," but it was nonetheless well-acted and pretty fun to watch... a different angle from the standard cinematic ghost story. Then the movie blew all my goodwill in the last scene or two. Let's just pretend that never happened.

Brings the want to walk out of the theater to a brand new level. I swear, Sonny Corleone's corpse has less holes than the plot of this movie. It tries to build tension, it fails. It tries to be smart, it fails. It tries to set up a good twist, it fails. A huge kick in the nuts. Nothing makes sense and the ending leaves you with every question unanswered, which I honestly did not care to get answered. Waste of talent, waste of money, waste of time.

Margaret Matheson (Sigourney Weaver); and assistant Tom (Cillian Murphy) investigate paranormal activity. A popular psychic powers Simon Silver (Robert De Niro) is the obsession of Tom. Overall, it feels like a television show than a movie. Score was cinematic but the conclusion felt delayed and unsurprising. Red Lights had its good parts especially in the acting department. An average thriller that tries too much to impress its viewers.

"Red Lights" by Yojimbo

A pair of paranormal investigators who specialise in debunking self-proclaimed "clairvoyants" go head to head with a renowned psychic who comes out of retirement. Rodrigo Cortes' supernaturally themed thriller has many of the hallmarks of the projects of the likes of M. Night Shyamalan in that it's nicely shot, directed with some panache and has managed to attract some big names to the cast. Unfortunately it has also inherited their hokiness and reliance on telegraphed twists that are all to obvious to anyone with any cinematic literacy. Red Lights does have its moments thanks to the superior cast and the cinematography is attractive and atmospheric, but as always seems to be the case with the genre the initial intrigue is far more entertaining than the pay off. In the end it feels over-l...

nice twist but a bit of a let down

A Psychologist ( Sigourney weaver ) and her faithful male assistant ( Cillian murphy ) when not lecturing students on paranormal activity go out to investigate those claiming to be mediums in order to prove they are frauds and the prove the abilities i do not exist. ,THe biggest of these mediums is a blind man played by robert de nero who is feared by weaver. the film then takes on a tense feeling till the end which i wont spoil which reveals a big twist. The movie was interesting and tense and i liked the twist a lot . but it failed on quite a few levels.. there just wasn't the right dialogue between the actors to engage the viewer properly . you expect things to get good but it feels like its made up as it goes along and leaves everybody detached from eachother including the ...
