Conclusion: You probably won't want to reflect too much on Mirrors (sorry, couldn't resist). Predictable, formulaic and overly gory a lot of the time, it leaves nothing to the imagination while traversing a too oft-traveled filmic path. Did you find this review helpful?
Conclusion: I think I’ve been conditioned to despise remakes of Asian cinema, because ‘Mirrors’ turned out better than I thought it would be. Now I’m not saying it’s a great horror movie by any means, but I wouldn’t say it’s awful, either. It has its moments, and under normal circumstances, I’d be inclined to call this one worthy of a look. However, the adequate extras and solid audio aren’t enough to offset the lackluster picture quality.
Summary: Like Kiefer Sutherland, my wife hates mirrors in spite of her own beauty. I guess I never realized just how many mirrors we have in our lives. I guess that means that she and Kiefer are uncomfortable a lot. Let’s hope these things aren’t really haunted. You could try, like Ben Carson, to get rid of them all, but driving could be a bit of a problem. After all “Objects in the mirror are closer than they appear”.
Excerpt: A security guard is exposed to unspeakable acts of evil from the past, present and future only visible to him in the reflection of mirrors. Suddenly, his life is exposed to the evil and he must stop it before everyone he knows is dead.
Excerpt: Like hitting up the carnival fun house with a belly full of mushrooms ready to turn ugly, there’s just something inherently goofy, buffoonish, and maybe even wrong about paying to see Jack Bauer scream at his own reflection for an hour and a half. Unfortunately, that kooky premise and a vaguely M.C.
Excerpt: In a classic bit from the Marx brothers movie Duck Soup , Groucho and Harpo are on two sides of a mirror, with the latter disguised as the former, wearing pajamas and a greasepaint mustache. The mirror shatters, but the illusion persists: The two Grouchos stare at each other, make funny faces, and even do the ha-cha-cha. Then things get really absurd.
Excerpt: Mirrors are pretty scary, uncanny in their ability to reveal unsightly curves and impure skin. This film takes it to a whole new level. The mirrors in "Mirrors" like to trap souls, absorb bullets, and callously break jawbones. A premise such as this is purely ridiculous, and far from chilling, despite some great creepy locations. Upon reflection, "Mirrors" has many laughable scenes, and if not taken seriously, is as satisfying as the rather amusing ending.
Summary: Na een rondje internetten om te kijken welke film we in de Bios wilden gaan kijken (ik, mijn wederhelft en mijn schoonmoeder), kwamen we bij deze film uit. Geen goede review in de Veronica, maar goed, we wagen het erop. Ik heb de trailer niet bekeken van te voren en ik liet me wel verrassen. Allereerst dacht ik: dit wordt een thrillertje met wat leuke twists, maar al gauw bleek dat dit een film werd in de stijl van o.a.
