Critic Reviews of "Flatliner"Seattle TimesJuly 01, 2013
Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland and Kevin Bacon all bring conviction to these scenes, and William Baldwin, as the most irresponsible of the students, continues to suggest an electric screen presence that rivals his brother Alec.Philadelphia InquirerJuly 01, 2013
Except for the performances by Roberts and Bacon, which occasionally redeem it, Flatliners is exasperating, a compelling concept unfulfilled.Orlando SentinelJuly 01, 2013
All I remember is that, just before I came to, there was a sudden burst of brightness. At last the movie was over, and someone had turned on the lights in the theater.Los Angeles TimesJuly 01, 2013
The movie's problem, like many others recently, is that it isn't any deeper, dramatically or psychologically, than its own trailer. It is the trailer: the long version.Chicago TribuneJuly 01, 2013
It`s much to Schumacher's credit that Flatliners, for all of its crazy excess, does not turn into camp. Despite two or three bad laughs, the picture retains a basic conviction.Entertainment WeeklySeptember 07, 2011
We're supposed to think, ''Gee, will they make it back?!'' By the third or fourth close call, we're not exactly sweating.Common Sense MediaAugust 16, 2016
'90s thriller about near-death experiences is very violent.South Florida Sun-SentinelJuly 01, 2013
Flatliners is moderately entertaining hocum at times, when it doesn't reach too far. Roberts is the best of the adequate bunch -- only her fans should make this a must-see.Radio TimesJuly 01, 2013
Schumacher puts more flash than flesh on the story, but still manages to deliver the expected chills with cool efficiency as the students' extracurricular experiments take a sinister turn.Philadelphia Daily NewsJuly 01, 2013
Young medical students intentionally kill and resuscitate each other, thereby gaining knowledge of the afterlife, which turns out to look a lot like... MTV.People MagazineJuly 01, 2013
The death trips are part travelogue, part bad dream, and they quickly start to pall with the same scene basically being repeated five times.TV GuideOctober 30, 2012
The look is overpowering enough to delay -- though not forever -- examination of the plot, which has to pull a fast one at every turn to keep moving and which eventually makes a mockery of plausibility.
