Phil’s Quick Capsule Review:
The misnomer here is that Flatliners 2017 is a worse film that the star packed original. It’s not. That one was pretty rubbish as well. This said there was an opportunity here to do something interesting with the tale of a group of medical students who mess with nature to find out if there really was an ‘afterlife’. This wasn’t that film. Look it’s far from terrible (well maybe a few times) but a hokey script, an unconvincing cast and a run time that doesn’t justify itself just makes you realise life is too short to be watching films like this. Sadly to be labelled with a Do Not Resuscitate.
Best Bit: Dr Sutherland!
