Matialth Good concept, poorly executed.
Rio Hayward All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
Derrick Gibbons An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.
Kinley This movie feels like it was made purely to piss off people who want good shows
Majikat This film has the ability to be a lot better than it was, with a great angle of the satanism abuse, it reminded me of a real life story here in the uk. This one is clearly based on true events, but perhaps wasn't as engaging in the beginning as the end and it's easy to get lost in somebif the story. That being said it's a worthy watch and perhaps one that becomes more clear with a second viewing.
kallmekarter Starring: Ethan Hawke and Emma WatsonReview: Regression started off like a pretty good movie. It had a dark, ominous tone. I like Ethan Hawke as an actor. Emma Watson is pretty hot. It seemed like it was going to be a solid movie about questioning one's faith, the brutality of man, and the intricacies of the human mind. It had all the makings of a good movie, but it wasn't one. There were some good parts. The revelations at the beginning were intense and the weird satanic visions that haunted Ethan Hawke were pretty creepy and built suspense. Overall, it was pretty predictable, though. In the age of plot twists, it's pretty common for people to try and guess what it is. Filmmakers don't usually stray too far from my first guess so it's kind of hard to be surprised. Regression's "plot twist" was obvious from a mile away, though. It would have done well as a horror movie if it had stuck with those elements, but that's not what type of movie it was. Ethan Hawke and Emma Watson's talents were wasted on this movie just like Ethan and Selena Gomez's were wasted on Getaway (literally the worst movie I have ever seen).What I Would Have Changed: I would have scrapped the psychological aspect of the movie along with the "twist" and made it a straight up horror movie about a cop helping a girl who's been abused by a satanic cult. Those were the parts of the movie that made it interesting. The ending pretty much negated all of that.Verdict: I wouldn't watch it again. If you haven't seen it but want to, I'd recommend waiting until it airs on TV to watch it. Or get somebody to rent it from Redbox for you.Follow me: @KallMeKarter
Bob An So, a few minutes before the film will end, I somehow knew it would end because the mysteries of the film were solved - but were they really? I mean, the film ended and I felt like this 'end' should have taken place in first 30 minutes or so and I wished for the film to continue and make things clearer ( for me) ... The ending left me confused. Some of the reviews here cleared the things up a bit.So, actually the film was about a false memory?! Regression into the past that was not actually real?If that is the case then this film did not do a great job. Actually I do not know what kind of film this is and what was the point of it. More so because it is based on true events and it gives some kind of an explanation at the end of the film which is very vague.I picked up to see this film mostly because of Ethan who was great in Sinister and The Purge. I can not say he was bad here. He was OK, as this film is. Somewhere in the middle. I do see a potential in the premise of the film but it was not fully developed to be more captivating.Five from me.
pozytywny-maniak I'm very surprised by the low score of this movie. Screenplay is good, directing work is very fine, cinematography is well done... There's little wrong with that movie from technical point of view. Hawk played well. Good role. Even Emma Watson did pretty good job. Supporting characters are doing good job as well. Story itself is interesting and movie is doing good job of feeding your paranoia. You are getting to know what's what maybe too soon but nevertheless this is well produced movie. One thing I have agings this movie is very typical liberal-like approach to the matter of faith. Basically all who belief are stupid little people and the atheists/agnostics are the only straight thinking folks around. Cliché. This is not a high-flyer of Alejandro work but it is very decent movie.
