La crítica esta destruyendo a ‘Flatliners’

Lo que parecía una innecesaria nueva adaptación de la cinta Flatliners de 1990 protagonizada por Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin y Oliver Platt, resulto ser… precisamente un fracaso. O al menos eso indican los primeros reviews de la critica especializada que no están siendo nada condescendientes con la película protagonizada por Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev y James Norton.

El filme dirigido por Niels Arden Oplev hasta este viernes habría conseguido un muy interesante 0% basado en 23 reviews en el sitio Rotten Tomatoes, razón por la que en esta ocasión Flatliners protagoniza tu sección favorita: “La crítica destruye a…

Checa a continuación lo que los medios han comentado al respecto:

“How many Do Not Resuscitate jokes will be made about Flatliners, Hollywood’s latest attempt to bring a long-forgotten hit back from the dead for an audience raised on reheated cultural leftovers? A few, no doubt.”

The Hollywood Reporter, John DeFore

 

“If only its irony were the most painful thing about Flatliners, an artless and agonizingly boring remake of a semi-forgotten movie about the dangers of bringing things back from the dead. Lazily recycling the ’90s schlocky Joel Schumacher thriller of the same name (once a staple of video store shelves everywhere), this lifeless new version hits all the same beats as the original, but does so without a speck of the baroque style that made it such a fun thing to rent on a Friday night.”

IndieWireDavid Ehrlich

 

“I imagine Columbia understood that it had something arguably worse than a dog on its hands. This Flatliners is in fact a new definition of ‘meh,’ ”

The New York TimesGlenn Kenny

 

“There was potential for a film about people being haunted by deeds of their past, particularly in the age of the internet when it’s harder for sins to disappear but (Flatliners) is “hackneyed horror devices uneasily mixed with softball dramatics of atonement, to increasingly plodding effect.”

Time Out New York, Michael Gingold

 

“Nope. Flatliners 2017 is the same dumb movie as Flatliners 1990, minus most of the surface charisma.”

A.V. Club, Mike D’Angelo

“Sutherland was sold as the connective tissue between the two films, and his character could have offered true mentorship or advice to students performing identical experimental procedures to his. But his cameo is largely pointless. There is zero reference to the events of the last film. Instead he is left to stomp around irascibly with a walking stick, like a less brilliant Dr. House. He is the most visible ghost of all: the vision from the past, haunting the present, reminding us that this all happened before, and marginally better.”

Empire, John Nugent

“The new filmmaking team of writer Ben Ripley and director Niels Arden Oplev makes the original’s members look like peerless masters of horror.”

Los Angeles Times, Noel Murray
