Flatliners, the remake, is a good example of how the gene pool doesn't necessarily become stronger with time.

If you find Flatliners to be conceptually interesting (which it is), stay home and rent the original.

October 5, 2017 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Instead, this is yet another cinematic Frankenstein's monster, stitched together out of scavenged parts, and shocked back to life for no clear or compelling reason.

This new version is sadly D.O.A.

October 1, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

This would be boring if it wasn't so unintentionally funny.

October 1, 2017 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

What we get is a mediocre remake of a mediocre original - not exactly must-see cinema.

Audience Reviews for Flatliners

Lame, Ellen Page could not save this one. I haven't seen the original in years, but all this did was make me want to watch that one and forget I ever saw this. It's a shame, because actually the cast was decent, but it just falls flat.

A lazy, uninspired and downright stupid remake that overlooks nearly everything that made the original film clever and effective, trying too hard to be more like a horror movie (but failing ridiculously) and not bringing anything remotely clever or new to the pot.

It gets three stars purely because it scared me more than once! But the overall storyline is much to be desired!
