Dragonfly is like neither of the above, some people have compared it with "The Sixth Sense" and found it wanting, however that is a little unfair as this is not a movie about ghosts as such, rather it is about belief, life after death and the power of love.
When his wife is killed in a freak accident in South America, Dr. Joe Darrow is left only with memories for her body was not recovered from the wreckage of the bus that claimed her life and that of her fellow Red Cross workers.
But Joe finds that he is getting signs, he is seeing things in the house he once shared with his wife not to mention the children who have had near death experiences talk about his wife Emily and a rainbow, along with an odd little wavery cross they keep drawing when they come back to the land of the living.
Joe thinks he is going mad, his friends think he is going mad but eventually Joe finds himself following what he soon realises are clues to a puzzle that he must unravel if he is ever to have peace of mind.
A visit to a remote village in South America reveals the truth about Emily's death and the surprising legacy she left behind.
An excellent cast with Kath Bates in a tough but soft centred cookie role as Dr Darrow's friend Mrs Belmont and a short but sweet showing of the brilliant and often understated actress Linda Hunt as the nun Sister Madeline who makes Dr Darrow realise that there is more to life and death than heaven and earth can ever explain.
There are no spectacular special effects in this film though there are some genuinely spooky moments which will make you jump and though the ending is a little bit syrupy for my taste it doesn't make the film any less watchable.
Not a film I would have gone to the movies to see but one I enjoyed watching on DVD.
With certain films, one generally gets out of it what one takes in. I went in with no preconceptions, and was utterly stunned by this thrilling movie and its superb ending. I now wish I had seen this on the big screen.
Yes, a lot of the events in this movie have been done before, but this is a really good flick and I recommend it without hesitation.
There. I had to say something.
The DVD is really good, but what else would you expect from Universal. The picture quality is crystal clear. The sound is aas good as ever on a DVD. The special features include: an audio commentary by the director, deleted scenes, a featurette on the making of the movie, and much more.
Dragonfly is about Dr. Joe Darrow who is having trouble believing his wife is dead. Everyone around him tries to help, but he wont accept it. One night in the hospital he hears a little boy yell "JOE!". All of a sudden a boy flatlines and is rushed into the emergency room. They believe he's dead. Dr. Joe walks ur to him and he comes alive. The next day he goes to see the little boy. The little boy says he saw him in the emergency room the night before, but that he saw him from the roof. He said that his wife had something ergent to tell him. The little boy couldn't remember what it was. Joe's misson is now to find out what his wife wanted him to know. Many eerie things happen that he can't explain.
Overall Dragonfly is A+ work. The story is so original and the actors sink into their characters. This movie is worth the rent and certainly worth the buy. Hope you like the movie, becuase I definately did. Thanks!
It's a little confusing in some points, but in the end everything falls into place, and you'll be either in tears or near tears because it is just so sweet and kinda sad. A definite must-see, though!
One negative about this movie was the apparent lack of depth to some characters. Kevin Costner, in his role as Joe, seems to just be going through the motions at times, rather than acting. It is not a problem that detracts from the overall impression of the movie, but it is a slight problem nonetheless. Also, I felt like Joe's supervisor at the hospital was kind of a "stock" character, playing the mean-spirited supervisor who tells Joe he needs to take a break from his role as doctor and then gets angry with Joe when Joe tries to go back to the hospital.
Another negative is the ending. This could have been done better. It just seemed kind of far-fetched. I won't give it away, you'll just have to see it yourself and decide.
Despite the negatives, this was an enjoyable movie to watch. It was finally one of those movies that was both gripping and enlightening at the same time. There are a few "edge-of-your-seat" parts when Joe is alone in the house (when he doesn't really feel alone). However, they don't overdo these, and most of the story concentrates on the plot. Joe's journey is discovering what life and death truly mean.
