4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good July 6 2002
Format:DVD
I bought this movie recently when I saw it at a store, and realized it was a Julia Roberts film I actually had never heard of. I own many of her movies, and since she and Kiefer Sutherland are two of my favorite actors, I decided to give it a shot.
The first thing that grabs you about this movie is the suspense. Come on, medical students experiencing clinical death (Flatlining) and trying to come back is not a very serene situation to begin with. But when they outbid each other for length of time when deciding who gets to go next, even the viewer begins saying to his/herself "oh, God, don't let him die!!" (I did anyway). With each gorgeous young actor wanting to be dead longer than the previous, it really puts you at the edge of your seat. As if this weren't enough, all these people that "died" and came back begin being haunted by their past sins and misdeeds, and are mentally, even physically, harmed by them.
This movie features Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts, Billy Baldwin and Oliver Platt in much younger, and more dangerous, roles than I've seen most of them play. It's a great movie for a younger audience, and probably only for people with a more open mind to horror and death. A last note: Kiefer Sutherland has a great first line.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Thrilling and Original March 22 2004
By A Customer
Format:DVD
This film by far is one of the best when it comes to originality. Five med students (Kiefer Sutherland, Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, William Baldwin, and Oliver Platt) want to know what really lies beyond death. One by one they each flatline for a short time to see if they can come back with the answers to life and death. What they get is far more than they would have ever expected. One by one their sins are brought back to haunt them until they make amends with their past. The dark lighting and music keep you entranced throughout the film. The only thing that I have to complain about on this Dvd is the lack of special features. It at least should of had the Trailer, however, other than that, this movie is a "should buy." Great acting by the five lead actors that have now made great names for themselves.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flatliners July 2 2003
Format:DVD
What really happens after death...is exactly what a few overzelous medical students try to find out in this suspence-thriller that I think is a real hair rasier! What I really loved about this movie is that they depict death a almost a journey into what the person loved most in their life. They didn't try to do the old hollywood "tunnel of light" but rather a kind of peace that watches over a person after they die. It made me wonder though that when they cheat death, death seems to have a type of "punishment" that befalls every seeker after they come back. Every one soon discoveres that they only way to say "sorry" is to embrace this "punishment" and make amends as kiefer sutherland soon discovers. This movie is stylish and fun and has many lessons that everyone can learn from. Death isn't so scary, its life that is scary and unknown.

4.0 out of 5 stars A different but good movie. Feb. 5 2004
By AAI
Format:DVD
Honestly I never heard of this movie until a few months ago. I am a pretty big fan of Keifer Sutherland and some of his movies and of course his tv show 24. So about a month ago I blindly bought this movie just for the hell of it. The Flatliners stars Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon, one of the Baldwins, and of course Keifer.
The Flatliners itself is a pretty cool movie with a different concept than those in its genre. It deals with young medical students experimenting to find out if there is an afterlife. Once they come back from the afterlife they are haunted by the other side.
This is one of the ultimate "Do not do this at home" movies. Although after I saw it I couldn't help from asking my friends "How much money would you do it for", lol. I bet one you see this you will be asking your friends.
One area where it is lacking though is the DVD itself is lacking any kind of special features, interactive menus, and a decently layed out chapter selection. In all honestly the movie is pretty good but the DVD is terrible compared to other newer DVDs. To me things like that make a difference. The fact that it is cheap makes up for it though.
I think if you enjoyed movies such as Stir of Echoes, The Sixth Sense, Vanilla Sky, or even the Mothman Prophies (underrated movie) you probably will enjoy this movie. At times it is dark and sorta twisted but it always stays on track and never bores you. Definetly check this movie out if you are a fan of Keifer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon or Julia Roberts because they all shine in this movie.

3.0 out of 5 stars Three stars for trying. Nov. 21 2003
Format:DVD
What a great premise for a modern horror story: Young Frankensteins bent crossing the line between life and death. It is a creative and interesting premise along the lines of so many classics, including, of course, Frankenstein, The Fly (the re-make, especially), and The Man With the X-Ray Eyes. Of course, there will be hell to pay for "going where Man ought not go." Oh yes, there'll be hell!
But where the movie fails is in its rather silly, preachy lecture on the consequences of these actions. I won't give it away here, but the film turns into a cheap spin on a familiar ghost story, something done to much better effect in The Sixth Sense. The acting is just average, with Julia Roberts looking better than average, and constraining her hideous laugh, but the rest just mailing it in--with one exception. Kevin Bacon. He has turned out to be a terrific actor all around (including in Mystic River), and he is a real stand out in this film, too. Too bad he isn't enough to save it.
Watch this movie for the premise, for the director's ability to create suspense, and try not to cringe too much as the truth is revealed. Once again, a great premise dies because of bad execution.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent movie
What can you say about a movie where people play with death and the other side? I think this was done very well and it made me think of how I treat others.

4.0 out of 5 stars A classic.
This has to be my favorite Kiefer Sutherland movie. The basic idea is that five medical students "flatline" themselves to see what happens when you are technically dead. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars A remarkable work, in spite of itself
This movie is not exactly high on people's lists of Great Horror, but as a scientific-religious allegory it's sheer brilliance. Read more
