Red Lightsレビュー
Entertainment Weekly
This half-clever mess of a thriller, Red Lights, gets some mileage out of its novel premise. Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy play scientists hunting for evidence of paranormal activity and extrasensory perception.
Film4
Red Lights is a game of three halves - and no, I don't mean thirds. The film has two distinct conventional halves, the first of which builds tension while the second lays on the scares and surprises. But then there's an addendum, one full of...
The A.V. Club
For roughly its first 30 minutes, Red Lights looks like it might be one of the most entertaining and original mainstream horror movies in years. Writer-director Rodrigo Cortés—who helmed the clever 2010 man-in-a-box thriller Buried—introduces his...
Slant Magazine
For an hour or so, Red Lights quietly announces itself as the sort of movie that many viewers have been waiting for. Its brooding atmosphere, suggestion (but never outright depiction) of the supernatural, and deft use of a whole slew of actors who are...

Hold on a sec, a paranormal thriller/horror film with Robert De Niro, Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy? Where do I sign up? This little film has flown under my radar this summer with big budget superhero movies taken the spotlight. “Red Lights” deserve

JoBlo's Movie Emporium
Sometimes you just wish a movie would be plain old bad as opposed to bad with some pretty good parts. RED LIGHTS is like that, a mystery that starts off quite promisingly but little by little unravels into a predictable and tedious thriller.
RedEye
That’s because much of “Red Lights” revolves around Dr. Tom Buckley (Cillian Murphy), a physicist determined to expose any and all supposed psychics and paranormal visions as frauds. He knows when someone discreetly lifts a table to simulate something...
Reel Film Reviews
Red Lights follows professional skeptics Margaret Matheson (Sigourney Weaver) and Tom Buckley (Cillian Murphy) as they debunk a series of supposed paranormal occurrences, with complications ensuing for the pair as Margaret becomes determined to once...
TotalFilm.com
The toolbox may be bigger in his supernaturally themed follow-up, but Red Lights shows Cortés’ knack for suspense was no fluke.
SFX
Just because we’re reviewing Red Lights in SFX, don’t take that as a spoiler about its central question – namely, does Robert De Niro’s charismatic guru possess supernatural powers?
Indian Express
FOR a movie about the mind and ESP, Red Lights does a lot of talking -- only some of it does it good. For, how many ways are there to say "weigh belief against rationality". Dr Margaret Matheson (Weaver), Simon Silver (de Niro), Tom Buckley (Murphy)...
New York Post
Robert De Niro, who seems hellbent of late on capturing The Post’s annual Turkey Award for Worst Actor, certainly got an impressive start with his self-parodying role as a derelict taxi driver in this spring’s “Being Flynn.’’
Susan Granger Entertainment Commentaries
The promising premise of this psychological thriller involves supernatural debunking or how phony psychics, ghost whisperers and faith healers convince the gullible public that they possess special powers to access the ephemeral spiritual world.
Mark Reviews Movies
A man closes the palm of his hand around a coin. He quickly moves his hands back and forth, over and under each other, until he asks the woman across the table from him which hand contains the coin. Neither does, of course. The trick was to make...
Orlando Weekly
The thrill of exposing a fraud is a notion with a rich cinematic history covering all manners of craft – revivalism in Marjoe, art forgery in F for Fake, demonic possession in The Last Exorcism, for example – and understandably so considering the...
Richard Roeper.com
“This movie has such a ponderous, self-important style, even though it’s so preposterous, it almost comes off as a comedy.”
Empire
Even with flashes of invention and the game cast, it would take a wilier showman than Cortés to truly impress with this shabby bag of tricks.
Time Out London
A dollop of ‘The X Files’, a dash of ‘The Sixth Sense’ and a whole lot of blah come together in Rodrigo Cortés’s supernatural suspense thriller. Sigourney Weaver and Cillian Murphy play a pair of academic debunkers of paranormal hokum with a sublimated...
Birmingham Mail
You might also think this is a Robert De Niro movie given his visage on the poster. But, again, things ain’t always what they seem... It’s almost as if Hollywood’s ‘A’ listers have realised that if Premiership footballers can earn ridiculous sums for...
Shadows on the Wall
Spanish filmmaker Cortes clearly thinks of himself as a Christopher Nolan-style filmmaker, as this thriller has heavy echoes of Inception and especially The Prestige. But the film drifts into self-parody just when it needs to take an intelligent twist.
MovieXclusive.com
Rodrigo Cortes has done it again. Just so that you know this reviewer's biases, I was deeply impressed with how the Spanish writer-director-editor had deftly crafted what was essentially a one scene, one setting, one actor thriller in Buried which...
