2017 | DIR. NIELS ADREN OPLEV | REVIEW BY GLENN COCHRANE.
If my review of Flatliners were to be limited to the character restrictions of a tweet, it would simply read, “Why?” And to be honest, that’s where I feel like leaving this. But, since one expects more context from a published review, l will elaborate.
Remakes, reboots, reimaginings, recalibrations… these are words that seem to be controlling Hollywood at the moment. Perhaps I am either getting old and becoming too cynical, OR perhaps it’s that the target demographic of movies like Flatliners have lapsed into a collective coma, unable to express or experience originality (Is it patronising of me to say that? Well… it must be me after all).
