5.0 out of 5 stars SHATTERING Feb. 27 2010
By Mike Silverman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
If you like horror movies you won't be disappointed in this. Buy it. The movie has an interesting premise involving radical treatment for schizophrenia, which results in a supernatural side effect involving mirrors. There are some "very" brutal scenes in this movie. The theme is actually very creative and Sutherland does an excellent job of making you feel the horror. I liked the ending. It was a nicely twisted finish. The disk functioned perfectly, audio and video quality were great.

3.0 out of 5 stars anna are you o.k. ? are you o.k. anna ? Sept. 7 2009
By Benstarbuck - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
i did enjoy the film a good bit more than i thought i would . i read a very favorable review in VIDEOSCOPE (the phantom of the movies) mag . i chuckled to myself a good bit when ann was impaled on the pipe (so to speak) and an approximation of MICHAEL'S lyric sprung into my mind . i like the director a good bit (THE HILLS HAVE EYES) remake . i've seen better . i've seen a lot worse . it's my favorite genre . it was not too insulting . good grue . pretty fair script . loads of things you've seen before but still a fun and sometimes scary afternoon . certainly worth a rental . if you've seen a lot of horror you'll still be entertained . if you have not seen much horror you'll probably think it's the cat's p.js . check it out . if you're an avid 24 fan , you may not be able to divorce yourself from JACK Bauer syndrome . not his fault . he gives a solid performance here .

4.0 out of 5 stars A decent horror flick Oct. 12 2009
By Dr. Bojan Tunguz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
I rented this movie after it was recommended to me through the Netflix recommendation system, and for the most part I was very satisfied.

Kiefer Sutherland plays an ex cop who becomes confronted by daemons that live in mirrors of a burnt-down New York department store. As they threaten him and his family, he uses all of his detective skills to destroy these sinister forces. The movie is well paced and well acted, with the music score and visuals that greatly enhance the whole experience. The twist ending also makes you rethink many aspects of the movie, which comes as an added bonus.

If you are looking for an entertaining horror flick and are not too squeamish about the cutting/dismembering scenes then give this movie a chance. It may not be the most outstanding horror film you'll ever see, but it's certainly worth watching.

3.0 out of 5 stars So good until those final minutes. Nov. 30 2009
By Robert Beveridge - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Mirrors (Alexandre Aja, 2008)

I was about forty minutes into the hundred-odd-minute Mirrors last night when my wife, who's down with bronchitis, took some cold medicine and went to bed. I considered turning the movie off and coming back to it today, but I couldn't bring myself to do it. Why? Because I was seeing something I had never seen before--a good Alexandre Aja movie. No, seriously--a really good Alexandre Aja movie. (In my defense, when my wife takes cold medicine, twenty minutes later she has no idea whether I'm in bed with her or not. "Comatose" is a valid description.) I was expecting yet another stupid Hollywood remake (and with Alexandre Aja having helmed the epitome of the stupid Hollywood remake, the 2006 version of The Hills Have Eyes, I felt entirely justified in this). For the record, I have yet to see the film upon which this is based, the 2003 Korean project Into the Mirror, and maybe that changed my perception a bit. But oh, yes, I was completely immersed in this.

And then we got to the last five minutes. And that Nike I was waiting for clonked me in the back of the head, except by then I wasn't expecting it. Ever since I finished watching the silly thing, I've been trying to spin the ending a different way. Me, of all people, trying to figure out how to defend a film by a guy who, up until now, hadn't even figured out how to direct a good short! (I generally don't review shorts, only rate them; I caught his first project, Over the Rainbow, earlier this year. It got two stars mostly for its brevity.) I think this is a sign of the apocalypse.

In any case, the plot concerns an ex-cop named Ben Carson (Dark City's Kiefer Sutherland--who, let's face it, hasn't done a good film since the beginning of 24). Ben left the force after an incident that messed with his head enough that he fell into the bottom of a bottle, resulting in the breakup of his marriage (he's now sleeping on the couch of his sister Angela, played by Crank's Amy Smart) and a period of jobless wandering through a self-tortured life. He's started picking up the pieces, though, and newly sober, gets a job as a night watchman at a department store that burned down five years ago. (We're told that it's still being patrolled because the company is still tied up in a legal battle with the insurance company.) All well and good, except that ghostly goings-on begin his first night. He quickly finds out that every night watchman in the place, including the guy who originally burned the place to the ground, has had the same problems. You see, there's something wrong with the department store's mirrors. (This is not a spoiler; we find this out in the refreshingly gory opening scene.) Needless to say, whenever he tries to explain the mirror problem--to Angela, for example, or to his ex Amy (Precious' Paula Patton)--they look at him like he's nuts. How to convince them he's not before something unspeakable happens? And what do the things in the mirror want, anyway?

It's always been the case that the decent American remakes, or even the mediocre ones that still somehow manage to be worth watching (Verbinski's The Ring, for example, or Scorsese's The Departed), are based on top-notch flicks. Not to say there haven't been awful American remakes (did you see Bangkok Dangerous? No? Stay that way.), but the good ones? Yeah. So I'm guessing that Sung-ho Kim's original Geoul Sokeuro is a real barnburner, because the first hundred minutes of this movie are, at least for Alexandre Aja, absolute genius. The whole thing is about character and atmosphere. It is, in fact, the second (that I know of) Asian-horror-flick remake to actually get that bit right, and as a result, the film shines. Some of the criticism leveled at the movie has had to do with some bad acting by supporting players, and this is true, but none of the supporting players here gets a whole lot of screen time; this is Kiefer Sutherland's movie, and he carries it. (Some of the other criticisms say he's just reprising his Jack Bauer role. I've never seen 24, so I can't comment on that, but if so, I can see why the show's a hit.) The atmosphere is tense, and more importantly it's believable enough to let the viewer swallow enough disbelief to actually buy the rather ridiculous premise.

And then the final five minutes. Intellectually, I know I shouldn't hate them as much as I did. The ending probably even works in the original (though some of the things I've read lead me to believe the ending has been changed). And for the record, the final shot really is set up nicely all the way through the movie, and if you take it by itself, it's creepy and effective. But my god, the plot hole that gets blown through this movie in the final two scenes is unforgivable--especially because those scenes are right next to one another. It was as if Aja and his longtime writing partner Gregory Levasseur said "hey, we need one of those endings that sets up for a sequel (ed. note: which is in the process of being filmed as we speak, of course), who cares if it makes no sense in the context of the rest of the film?". And that's exactly what we got.

I wanted to love this movie. And had I turned it off five minutes before the end, I probably would have. ***

5.0 out of 5 stars Mirror, mirror on the wall Dec 11 2008
By Amanda Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
Angela Carson: Mirrors are just glass and silver, Ben. That's it. There's nothing behind them.

Short Attention Span Summary (SASS):

1. Ex-cop Ben Carson (Keifer Sutherland) is forced by necessity to take a job as a night watchman at a Department Store that has been gutted by a major fire.
2. It doesn't take him 24 hours to find out that something's not quite right with his new job
3. Sure enough, he soon learns that the Department Store was once a totally different type of institution, and that the man who burned it down had also killed his own family. Strangely enough, the large mirrors in the building have all survived the destruction.
4. When the hallucinations start, Ben starts digging around, and discovers a clue - the word "esseker"
5. No prizes for guessing that something evil lurks in the mirror world, and soon Ben's family become targets.
6. It's up to Ben to find a way to save his family, and his time is almost up.

This is a creepy, gritty sort of horror flick that will have you thinking twice about looking into the mirror, even if you've never before been able to pass one by without checking yourself out. A bit of gore here and there adds to the drama, but the spine-tingling bits occur in the quieter moments. The ending however, isn't so much anticlimactic as understated. Recommended for folk who like to get their creep on.

Ben Carson: You gotta be careful of the water, it creates reflections!
