Flatliners (2017) Review

by Ian Morton Most adequately described by its title alone, Flatliners falls desperately short with a messy plot, unstructured directing and an odd mix of performances.

Passengers Review

By Ian Morton Whilst Passengers benefits from pretty camera work and a strong chemistry between leads, a frustrating genre blend mixed with a poignantly irreversible twist make this much more disappointing than it should have been.
