I definitely recommend this movie if you want a nice break from AAA blockbuster titles. This movie is very much character-driven, where from start to finish, you explore a set of characters that make a discovery concerning the afterlife. Through it they gain not only some cool abilities (increased intellect, etc.) but they also grow thanks to this experience (without going into spoilers). I'm pretty satisfied with how the story was handled, and I'm glad the movie didn't go into too much metaphysical stuff concerning life after death. In the end, I think Flatliners gives the viewer a bit to think about and something that's at least a little bit memorable.

I would literally give this movie 0 stars if I could. Thanks but no thanks. Ellen Page is the best part of this movie - and then Diego Luna shows up and becomes the only reason anyone should see this through until the end. $5.32 I could have spent on some powdered donuts at Wawa. Now I'm hungry and disappointed. It's almost like everyone in Hollywood is tacitly ok with murder as long as you can forgive yourself in the end, which... was gonna be a joke but I'm pretty sure everyone in Hollywood is ACTUALLY ok with murder. Except Diego Luna and Tom Hanks.

I have mixed feeling with this movie. I'm not entirely sure what to think... I think the back story is good, but it doesn't make sense to have their past haunt them. They should have focused more on the afterlife. Flatlining has nothing to do with your past mistakes coming to haunt you. It doesn't make much sense to me. The acting was good, but the story line couod have been better. It's a movie that wasn't a total loss cause, but I'm not going to watch it again.
