Flatliners 2017 film review. Directed by Niels Arden Oplev. Distribution by Sony Pictures. Certificate 15, running time 110 minutes.
Only in this film it is actually made to be a horror movie rather than some psychological thriller the first movie was. I'm being honest I liked this movie, it has been slated, with low internet scores, it does have some really creepy moments, with the main point, don't mess with death, and if you do you will be judged by your demons of your past. These demons will manifest themselves untill you can right the wrongs of your past, almost admitting your sins to be forgiven.
The film is well acted by everyone involved, shame one character is taken out of the mix early, it still doesn't take away any of the enjoyment. A strange one where the reboot is actually better than the original, I'm going to be slammed for saying that, but I did enjoy this movie, and that is what movies are made for, enjoyment.
Yes it has plot holes, it isn't perfect but does have some genuinely good scares especially the creepy drowning man. If you have thought I'll give this a miss as it is just another Hollywood remake, just give it a go it may surprise you, I never expected to like this and was surprised, maybe you will be too.
