Critic Reviews

  1. 63
    Actually a marked improvement over the plodding and confusing original.
  2. The movie could have been a lot scarier.
  3. A minor chiller and major downer from the talented Alexandre Aja.
  4. Director Alexandre Aja (Haute Tension, The Hills Have Eyes) keeps the suspense tight for most of the movie, only to fritter it away in an overblown ending.
  5. An occasionally inventive but ultimately plodding horror film.
  6. This remake of a South Korean movie ultimately provides fewer scares than the average aging baby boomer feels every time they look into a reflective surface.

    An empty enterprise that provides a few moments of goofy fun, Mirrors reflects back nothing.
  8. 33
    The film looks to do for reflective surfaces what "Amityville 4" did for killer lamps.

    Softcore horror at best, failed allegory at worst, Mirrors reflects little beyond Splat Pack auteur Alexandre Aja's desire to push his genre into less punishing and more profitable territory.

    It's a mystery why Sutherland attached himself to this dour, muddled thriller.
  11. 25
    The gore is so badly done that it's borderline comical and poor lighting passes for "atmosphere."

    At nearly two hours, Mirrors is overlong for a summer horror toss-off, and the movie's three or four false endings make it seem even more of a haul.
  13. An effective sound design enhances several of the film's sudden frights, and Sutherland, who appears in almost every scene, is a predictably solid presence.

    I Thought it was very Jumpy, and a great film to watch in the dark, why all these bad reviews?

    This movie is bad in general .... But it is well made.

    This ended up being much better than I was expecting. It's not exactly ground-breakingly original, but it has some unexpected twists andThis ended up being much better than I was expecting. It's not exactly ground-breakingly original, but it has some unexpected twists and turns.
