Product Description

Veteran paranormal researchers Dr. Margaret Matheson (Sigourney Weaver) and Tom Buckley (Cillian Murphy) debunk fraudulent claims of ghost whispering, faith healing and other psychic phenomena by detecting what Matheson calls red lights, the subtle tricks behind every staged supernatural occurrence. But when the legendary blind psychic Simon Silver (Robert De Niro)comes out of retirement after 30 years, his once-fearless adversary Matheson warns Buckley to back off, fearing reprisal from the powerful Silver. Determined to discredit Silver, Buckley and his star student (Elizabeth Olsen) use every tool at their disposal to uncover the truth behind the charismatic, spoon-bending, mind reader. But Buckley is forced to reexamine his own core beliefs as his quest builds to a mind-blowing conclusion in this taut psychological thriller from award-winning writer and director Rodrigo Cortés (Buried).

4.0 out of 5 stars `the whole playing with your mind thing' August 9, 2012
Format:DVD
In the film a psychologist and paranormal investigator, played by Sigourney Weaver, and her physicist assistant, played by Cillian Murphy, investigate a famous psychic.
This movie attacks the tired old idea of 'is ESP real? With those who need to believe as opposed to those that see naivety at best, or a down right con at worst' with new dynamism, new concepts and explanations. Not a single shot of the movie is redundant or a 'filler' shot. There are none of the 'excessive scary movie' theatrics to keep you on edge of your seat.
It has the right narrative, with what I believe to be the right actors and the right scenes to take you where it wants to take you. There is misdirection and the odd McGuffin peppered here, and there has some clever twists in the tale.
This is a 'clever' movie, doesn't spell out everything for you, and makes you want to watch it carefully so as to not miss a thing. I had not heard much about this before it came out, and I was enticed by the actor set-up, as I had recently been watching lots of Cillian Murphy films. So I decided based on this to go see this film, and I must say I was pleasantly surprised if you liked, and hate to sound clichéd here, the film inception - with the whole playing with your mind thing, then you will like this movie, for me it is a thriller worthy of at least 4 stars.
I have seen and read a number of very negative reviews where people didn't get or felt cheated, I do not wish to sound sarcastic, but I'm not sure they watching the same movie as I was.
For more of a plot over view please see Ms R Hoseason's review, that describes it very well.
All in all great story, which really kept me in captivated, I will be checking out the DVD when it is out, and look forward to the extras. If the film is still out release then I would recommend seeing on the big screen

5.0 out of 5 stars Riveting Command of Your Attention from Start to Finish September 16, 2012
Format:DVD
You know how when you are watching a magic trick or slight of hand how your focus is heightened watching like a hawk for each nuance to catch how they did that? Red Lights (DVD + Digital Copy) compels the viewers attention to that heightened extent from beginning to end. Not one second is boring. One dare not turn one's attention elsewhere for one second.

The acting I found to be top notch. I think this is Robert DiNero's best acting ever and each and every other actor delivered some of their best performances.

Action.

Suspense.

Is there such a thing as paranormal or can it all be debunked upon close scientific examination? To know the answer in really examining this and its possibilities in other humans, one must first examine and know oneself (according to DeNiro, Weaver, and Murphy's characters) which is dangerous in itself.

Red Lights (DVD + Digital Copy) has a surprise ending which some critics say fails with a big fat F but still rate the movie a B because of the A+ excellence of every other component of Red Lights. For me, the movie ends fulfilling what the main character's warned, to know others, one must first know oneself which is dangerous. So the movie ends with a big surprise and not really any closure after that leaving the viewer highly entertained but unsettled without closure. I think that is exactly the emotion Rodrigo Cortés wanted to convey and the ending is not a fail but also superlative as every other part of this supernatural thriller - perhaps the same surprise and unsettling feeling many feel in self-discovery.

By zeus
Format:Blu-ray
First of all it is important to note that I bought this movie from Best Buy the day it came out. Although I buy a lot of movies from Amazon, lately Best Buy and Walmart are offering some extra (exclusives) that Amazon doesn't have. For example this package (blu ray, DVD, digital copy) was $12.99 from Best Buy only. So make sure you do your homework each time a movie comes out.

The movie is just fantastic! Is the kind of movie that you must watch at least twice. Sigourney Weaver is outstanding playing a professor (Margaret Matheson) who tries to debunk all supernatural claims, against a ruthless De Niro who is Simon Silver a powerful blind psychic. Together with her assistant Tom (Cillian Murphy) they try to prove that De Niro is a charlatan. Murphy's contribution in the first half of the movie is small. However, he takes over the entire movie in the second part with an outstanding performance. Elizabeth Olson's role in the movie is minimal.

Throughout the entire movie I had the impression that I was missing something. Something was not connecting. Just until the end when everything makes sense. Then I watched it again and I realized that I didn't paid attention to too many details the first time. Then, there is De Niro's acting. I have never seen De Niro acting poorly. I have seen De Niro in bad movies (i.e. Machete), but I have never seen De Niro acting poorly. In this movie, where he plays the role of a blind totally ruthless psychic, the first thing that comes to mind is a comparison with the outstanding performance of Al Pacino playing a blind eccentric U.S. Army Lieutenant Colonel (Frank Slade) in "Scent of Woman". Pacino was rewarded with the Oscar for his great performance and is totally justified.
