I actually thought this was really good and well written. One of the most underrated films from 2010.

a slow and strange film. its starts great with the big tusami scene then becomes a drama of sorts. it is a intresting thought provoking movie though ,quite inteligent with the 3 storylines that come together for the ending. and with each one being from different countries but overall it was a bit too mundane to keep most glued to the screen

"Hereafter" story revolves on three characters namely, George, Marie, and Marcus. Each from different places with related experiences- death. George (Matt Damon) is a psychic who can connect to dead people through their loved ones. Marie (Cecile de France) is an anchorwoman who experienced death on a vacation. Marcus (McLaren) who is in grieved after someone close to him died. Story-wise, for me, it's kinda lame. You can see the connections of the three stories but actually failed to provide strong relation of them. Matt Damon keeps this alive. Direction was good, a smooth one by Clint. =)

"Hereafter" by Yojimbo

Yojimbo - wrote on 10/09/2012

A San Franciscan psychic whose uncontrollable ability to commune with the dead has caused him to lead a life in isolation, a London schoolboy who lost his twin brother and a French reporter who suffered a near death experience converge in a chance encounter that changes all of their lives. Hereafter begins with a stunning sequence set during a tsunami that would put Roland Emmerich to shame and sets the scene beautifully for an "adult" exploration into the belief of an afterlife. However what we actually get is a rather long winded daytime soap opera during which very little at all actually happens. Matt Damon does put in quite a sensitive performance and his scenes with Bryce Dallas Howard are perfectly judged but they lead nowhere. Instead we are left with what look like leftover …

Adds Nothing to the Conversation

gzn - wrote on 05/19/2012

Sadly this film adds nothing to the conversation. Matt Damon plays his part well and was the only character I had any feelings about at all. Despite the perceived risk of crossing continents, to focus purely on Caucasian Christian milieu negated that risk. It dragged along without narrative drive or plot tension, and the absolutely horrible and glaring clunks, such as the Dicken's tourist guide speaking of Edward Drood rather than Edwin Drood slowed even further the barely moving pace. There were no recognisable human traits to resonate with. The girl from the cooking class, apart from being really annoying did not offer a character we could sympathise with. To feel for the boy you had to work really hard in between getting irritated at a funeral in which the ashes miraculously …

Hereafter review

Daniel Corleone - wrote on 01/24/2012

French television journalist Marie Lelay (Cécile de France) survives a near death experience. Psychic George Lonegan (Matt Damon) reads for his brother's client. Billy (Jay Mohr) insists that he utilize his gift. George wants to quit because the process is painful for him, though throughout the film one wonders if his reason was valid. Marcus and Jason (Frankie and George McLaren) do their best to prevent their mother from being picked up by social services. Highlights of the film was the impressive realistic tsunami, conversations of Goerge and the twins and the way the characters become intertwined. Mostly the picture drags and plot was all over. Score was almost nonexistent and the screenplay could have been improved. Parts of the film were good, but as a whole, Hereafter is a …
