Conclusion: There's certainly far worse out there in the cinema wild than 6 Souls , but it's exactly the sort of film destined to be forgotten rather quickly. Decent establishing story ideas and professional acting can't save it from a slow descent into the nonsensical in the second and third acts. The name change and the lengthy time between its 2008 shoot and 2013 release should say pretty much everything viewers need to know going in.
Conclusion: 6 Souls at a shorter length may have been a great under the radar thriller. As it is, it’s a solid rental with a good presentation. There’s no bonus material to dig deeper into this and the disorders it’s based on. This one could have used a featurette or commentary track with a forensic psychologist discussing these sorts of things. Or maybe you get the writer discussing the research with which he used to come up with this idea.
Conclusion: Julianne Moore stars in this direct-to-video-quality thriller about a man (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) whose multiple personalities turn out to be murder victims. The premise might have worked with a stronger script, but 6 Souls devolves into a messy blend of spiritual hooey and backwoods justice. This has been locked in a closet since 2010 for a reason. .
