Red Lights (Rodrigo Cortés)
Starring: Cillian Murphy, Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver, Elizabeth Olsen, Toby Jones, Joely Richardson, Craig Roberts, Jeany Spark
My thoughts on this film: I totally loved De Niro in this and I must say that his brilliance at acting is what actually saved the movie, in my opinion.
I thought the whole concept was great - is there life after death? Are psychics for real? - therefore, I expected more from such a thriller with an amazing storyline and a brilliant cast. It had all the right ingredients!
The first part seemed ok, like it was going somewhere, with a few scary bits... But the second half became all messy with parts that did not make much sense and a twist at the end which really ruined it for me: I was left wondering what was the point?
