Written by Peter Morgan, I’m sure that a lot of thought had gone into this, but I sure hope there was more action that got left out by accident because watching this film was such a snoozer. The first ten to fifteen minutes was a build up to action scene but the rest of the movie has a lot to be said for “E” for effort. It made Clint Eastwood look like an amateur. Eastwood has made many great films, but Hereafter is not one of them. Critics have given this film a review grade of B+ and yahoo users a C-; I ask did we see the same film? Personally I would not have gone any higher than a D+. I say, save your 40.00 of ticket and snack money and wait for DVD. If you do go I recommend you take a Blanky and pillow, this flick may very well be the greatest “NAP” movie made this year. The commercial for this movie is so deceptive; don’t buy into it for one second.
Description: Three people are touched by death in different ways. George is a blue-collar American who has a special connection to the afterlife. On the other side of the world, Marie, a French journalist, has a near-death experience that shakes her reality. And when Marcus, a London schoolboy, loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each on a path in search of the truth, their lives will intersect, forever changed by what they believe might—or must–exist in the hereafter.
