FLATLINERS: STEELBOOK EDITION REVIEWED
“Flatliners” is a film that I tried to distance myself from after seeing the recent sequel/remake/cash grab. Upon returning to the Mill Creek recent release, I was confused. I appreciate Mill Creek getting creative with its packaging and its approach to the A/V Quality. But, I wonder why revisit this movie outside of basic tie-in logic? To say that this is a pointless Joel Schumacher movie is an understatement.
It’s a plot line that’s desperately in search of a movie. None of the actors really play well off each other, while Kiefer Sutherland feels like he’s channeling his father through a lot of the film. While the recent film plays with the concept more, this one does the best you could do in 1990. Hell, it pulled down a few Award nominations. Check it out, if you’re curious.
