(mx) wrote: Amazing indie movie, surprising story and unexpected ending
(fr) wrote: I don't usually write reviews, but I was so appalled... Arrogant, pretentious and misogynist (mother who dedicated her whole life to husband and family finds happiness only at the cost of tragedy)... Acting is dire, btw, if you take your eyes off the subtitles. Tilda Swinton redeems herself only when she doesn't speak, probably because she needs to read all her lines.
(au) wrote: What a waste of my time! I didn't even get through the second short. There's no sense in any of the stories and major plot holes. Save your energy and skip this one. You will thank me.
(mx) wrote: Decent enough. Good cast. Jeffrey Wright is quite good, and I wish Mos Def had been given more to do as Chuck Berry (that's almost perfect casting). By the time Beyonce shows up as Etta James, the film feels 30 minutes too long already.

(br) wrote: Major let down, only 1 of the stories is mildly scary. Looks good but just doesn't live up to its potential.

(kr) wrote: Quite possibly one of the worst movies of all time. I was looking at the worst 100 list, and "MANOS THE HANDS OF FATE" is easily better than this, which seems to me to basically be stock footage off all the other teen sex romps of the past ten years spliced together and repackaged to pay for some studio exec's new mercedes. For your own good, dont see this movie. Read a book instead.
(us) wrote: Great movie, witch great plot, though if I am to judge my most the reviews I have seen here, the plot was lost to most.
(ru) wrote: Okay but this was actually really good??? 4 stars.
(au) wrote: In my opinion, the best 80s comedy.
(ru) wrote: Solid ensemble acting with neon colors & cool direction from Joel Schumacher. So what happens when you flatline? Well, we all have our demons to fight. You will be keen to see how the cast resolves their issues that return to haunt them. Kiefer Sutherland shines as always as the rebellious & dark one. A bit implausible in parts maybe, but I bet you have asked yourself: "What if....?"
