I never thought I am about to watch such a spectacular film when I saw the low ratings it received.Seeing names such as Sigourney Weaver, Cillian Murphy and of course Robert De Niro made me reconsider and watch it anyways.The story is beautiful and the acting is just marvelous. What I like most about this one is that feeling you get of not knowing what's going on and then, seeing the twist point of the movie, you are shocked at the results. It even took me up to the end of the end titles to understand what went on.I truly recommend watching! Totally underrated on reviews!
Red Lights is a White-Knuckle Thriller (by brendanalpiner)
I hate the unoriginal decisions that are plaguing Hollywood. Every movie is a sequel, a prequel or something extremely unnecessary. So, when a film like RED LIGHTS comes out that has such a premise unlike anything before, I try to go out of way to see it.This is where some films fail. They try to be original, but to no avail. RED LIGHTS, on the other hand, is that rare movie that makes me love new creations.My main love for the film is the way it carries its mystery. It never hides itself to be a horror film and never disguises itself as something it isn't. The first scene before the <more>
credits beautifully illustrates what you are about to see: an exploration into fake mediums, human ignorance and parapsychology.I loved the ending to the movie, although I know some people will hate it. At the very least give it a shot and I guarantee that at some point during the film, your beliefs will be questioned.
I was not expecting this movie to be the awesomeness that it was. De Niro and Weaver were the only reason I wanted to watch this movie, but I am glad I did! This movie attacks the tired old concept of 'is ESP real?' with new vigour, new ideas and explanations. Not a single shot of the movie is unnecessary or a 'filler' shot. And none of the 'scary movie' theatrics to keep you on edge. It has the right story line, right people and the right scenes to take you where it wants to take you, without the additional drama, not that it doesn't have some clever twists. This <more>
is a 'clever' movie, doesn't spell out everything for you, makes you want to watch it carefully so as to not miss a thing. All in all, its one of the best thriller movies I have seen. I completely recommend watching it!
The most underrated movie in years. Spoiler Free (by InsurgentTurian)
Let me start this review by saying I went into this movie thinking it might be pretty good, I was excited to see Cillian Murphy because I love the man, but coming out of this film I was in complete shock at how good it was.The thing that makes this thriller so great, is that unlike most of the movies made under the genera, the first half doesn't suffer to make the final half that much more shocking/amazing. This movie had me hooked from the start until the end without wasting a moment. Each scene was tense and did its job and then some. The concept alone was enough to get me interested <more>
but they throw curve ball after curve ball to keep you that much more invested and it worked without fault. Nothing in the movie felt at all cheesy or forced. It had a very natural flow about it.Now if you have heard anything about the movie you probably know that people are loving the ending. I am without a doubt one of those people. I heard the ending was as good and surprising but that did not prepare me for it. Not just the very end/the reveal was amazing but the whole final 10-15 minutes was phenomenal and memorable. It felt so real and very satisfying.So please see this movie. It deserves so much more credit then its getting and I hope you will be able to see the movie for what it is and truly appreciate it like I do. Keep in mind the concept, actors, genera ext was right up my alley so I may like it more then most. The only reason I'm not giving a 10/10 is because very, very, minor faults caught my attention. They aren't even worth talking about. Nothing is perfect, but this movie gets scarily close.9/10
After a long time I had a chance to watch Sigourney again and I am pleased. She is a highly talented actress so I want to watch more Sigourney movies soon. Pleasee.Robert Deniro was Robert Deniro, there is nothing I can say about him. He impressed everybody in the theatre as usual.Cillian Murphy is a great actor in every movie and he is always good in horror/thriller movies.I do not know anything about the director of the movie. I have not watched any of his movies before also he is quite young however I was impressed. I believe we will watch many good movies from him in the future. He is a <more>
promising talent.I have to say something about the music as well. It was just brilliant. Plot, directing, acting and music get along with each other smoothly.I gave 9 out of 10. I wish I could give 10 but I cannot and I cannot explain why I took 1 point because I do not want to spoil the movie.Just after the movie began I felt, I have not watched a movie like this for long time . Thank you.
I wasn't sure what to expect from the trailers. Gore and horror aren't my thing, unless it's done well, and so few are these days. However, I was pleasantly surprised. This has less to do with the supernatural and more to do with belief systems in a modern world.The story focuses upon two scientist professors that fill in the time between classes by investigating and exposing psychic frauds, be they petulant schoolgirls or venal evangelists. So when Murphy presses to investigate a famous mystic, why is Weaver so reluctant to agree? Is De Niro gifted with extraordinary powers, or a <more>
clever con artist? The atmosphere becomes more menacing and oppressive as the film progresses, leaving me wondering whether Murphy was becoming paranoid, or whether De Niro really was targeting him. The end, though not exactly the Sixth Sense ending some are proclaiming, was certainly unexpected.Great acting from the leads, as you would expect. Great dialogue. Not much in the way of action, nor thankfully schlock horror, but the tension mounted throughout the film. A clever and satisfying film.
Post modernism has been prevalent across the world for decades, and now the world is getting into another new era - era of spirit. People are sick and tired of chasing materials and now seeking inner peace. But they are not turning back to ancient religions and gods..they seek something else. Psychic - which is a controversial concept - could be one of the object they seek and like in this time of chaos. We have known numerous paranormal psychics who bends metal spoons, predict the 3rd world war..So scientific debunker's' activity was so compatible with the psychics'. The film <more>
The first film in years where I didn't see the ending coming. Utterly brilliant. (by The_Dead_See)
Red Lights follows two scientists who expose paranormal hoaxers the likes of Uri Geller or John Edwards. Their faith in their ability to disprove these frauds is tested when when they come up against paranormal celebrity, Simon Silver played perfectly by DeNiro in one of the few roles where I've ever seen him play, um, not DeNiro . Silver seems to possess some genuinely inexplicable talents. Is he the real deal? And more to the point, is he dangerous or even deadly to those who try to expose him? Reading through some of the other reviews on Red Lights has left me shaking my head in <more>
wonder. A 'twist that doesn't make sense' say a few of them, and that's complete hogwash. The twist here makes perfect sense, and it's genius in that it reflects the entire film in a different light. It makes you go all the way back to the beginning and re-examine everything you saw - everything a character said, every motivation, every occurrence - from a completely different perspective. Remember when you saw 'Fight Club' and the penny finally dropped as to what was going on and, if you're anything like me, you said to yourself "that's awesome!"? I'd go as far as to say Red Lights is even better than that, because the twist is not only cleverer, but it's also left right until the last scenes; whereas in Fight Club, most folks figured it out about halfway through.Don't worry by the way, the twist isn't the same as the one in Fight Club. The only reason I make that analogy is because, like Fight Club, this twist had me grinning from ear-to-ear because it actually got me... and not many do.Red Lights was one of those films that I hadn't heard of before and selected solely on the strength of its cast. I was not disappointed. The fact that one person wrote, directed and edited all this is almost as amazing as the powers of Simon Silver himself. It was a brilliantly structured, wildly intelligent ride along the boundaries between the fraudulent and the real. It's the most underrated film I've ever come across on IMDb. I'd recommend it to anyone who is fascinated by the ongoing battle between skeptics and believers, and to anyone who enjoys a well-directed, engaging thriller with an ending you will never see coming.
