  1. The cast sparkles especially Simon Baker, a sturdy leading-man type, who is primed to break through any day now, and Paz Vega, already a star in Latin market.

    Despite teasing hints of supernatural influences throughout much of the storyline, Not Forgotten satisfies as a solidly crafted and persuasively acted thriller that relies more on dark secrets than black magic.
  3. The film moves swiftly and vividly, but in retrospect, numerous plot holes come to mind. Not Forgotten presents a fascinating microcosm but ultimately loses believability when placed in a larger context.

    If the film's first two-thirds are dreary and preposterous, give Soref credit for a truly -- what's the proper cinematic terminology? -- batshit-crazy finale involving demented religious sects, ridiculously bloody face-offs and a gaggle of cross-dressing Mexican prostitutes.

    A movie that's more convoluted than satisfying.

    A lurid yet plodding thriller, bobs to the surface in theaters, most likely to the chagrin of the now very hot Simon Baker.
  7. A film that could have been memorably haunting is, sadly, all too forgettable

    If the film's first two-thirds are dreary and preposterous, give Soref credit for a truly--what's the proper cinematic terminology?--batshit-crazy finale.
  9. None of it makes any sense, but it is just nutty enough to provide a few (entirely unintended) laughs.

    I just watched this film and I've already completely forgotten it. Simon Baker was some sort of father-assassin, fumbling through garbage dialogue and a wickedly bad story, while acting generally like talentless eunich. Full Review »

    Outstanding thriller with twists and turns and a menacing end.
