For a little while you may feel this movie is moving way too slow, but it is building up to a very suspenseful conclusion and one that will surprise you. Suspense, action, romance and a 'never saw it coming,' conclusion awaits you in this movie and is certainly worth your time.
We loved it so much that, when it was over, we immediately ordered a copy from Amazon!
Half Light features stunning cinematography and a breathtaking soundtrack, full of Celtic instruments and delicate passages of music that -- combined with the images on the screen -- completely captivated us. We couldn't take our eyes off the movie. In fact, we kept telling each other, "Boy, wouldn't it be great to live there! What a beautiful location!"
I guessed what was going on about half way through the movie, but that didn't detract from the suspense we felt throughout the entire movie -- real, actual scares and not cheap shots with sound effects or someone coming up behind the actor on screen and grabbing his/her shoulder.
I love a good spooky movie. But so few are made these days. Either the CGI monsters are so goofy that they're laughable, or the writing is pedantic and stupid, or the premise is half-baked, or all the actors looks like they stepped out of TV show The OC, as vapid as any human beings can possibly be.
Half Light delivered the goods, never once disappointing us. The acting was first-rate (especially the Gaelic locals). The cinematography was nothing short of gorgeous. The soundtrack is something I hope exists because we'd love to own it. And the story itself was believable. We couldn't have asked for more from a movie and, in fact, were totally blown away by Half Light because we didn't expect much at all.
I have no idea why Half Light seems to have gone straight to DVD. It's easily one of the best movies we've seen in years.
I highly recommend Half Light.
It is disappointing that there was no promotion whatsoever in the U.S. for this film. After seeing the film on DVD, I'm also incredibly disappointed it wasn't given a chance in theaters. Demi Moore needs a comeback. She is only 43, still in her prime, and constantly in the limelight due to her high-profile marriage to Ashton Kutcher. Obviously, she is still very famous, so why couldn't a Demi Moore film such as "Half Light" fare incredibly well in theaters? Take Julianne Moore, who is Demi Moore's age, in "The Forgotten," for example. That was a much weaker film than "Half Light," but it performed reasonably well at the box office.
I just don't think the executives in charge were willing to give Demi a chance, and that is a shame for a number of reasons. "Half Light" is an excellent thriller--full of suspense, beautiful scenery, score, and a luminous, emotionally-charged performance by Demi. It's probably her best performance. I admit I am a fan of the actress, so perhaps I am slightly biased, but I admit not all of her work was good. I still think Hester Prynne in "The Scarlet Letter" was her best role, "Indecent Proposal" was her best film, and now I know her very best performance was in "Half Light.Read more ›

I found Half Light, like a few others, sitting on the dvd store shelf. I had never heard of it and wondered what Demi had been up to in recent years. Read morePublished 9 months ago by S. J. Culbertson
