    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

    Meandering and inert. Yet as an etching of an emotion and a vehicle for Costner, the movie makes a case for itself. show more

    When Kevin Costner goes into sensitive-guy mode, beware. show more

    Costner has never been further from the lively, engaging actor he can be, or at least once was. show more

    Steven Rea Philadelphia Inquirer

    A syrup-thick New Age ghost story of the same sappy stripe and mawkishness as another Costner foray, "Message in a Bottle." show more

    A stinker of epic proportions. show more

    Jay Carr Boston Globe

    At least Dragonfly isn't contemptible or altogether dismissible. But it doesn't use Costner well, and it even more unforgivably wastes Kathy Bates. show more

    Michael Wilmington Chicago Tribune

    A sappy, often absurd disappointment, another would-be inspirational romance that, like Costner's overwrought "Message in a Bottle," is impossible to swallow. show more

    David Sterritt Christian Science Monitor

    Costner is convincing as the hero, ably supported by Joe Morton as a short-tempered supervisor and Kathy Bates as a feisty neighbor. Dragonfly has little chance of "Ghost"-like popularity, though. show more

    Lawrence Toppman Charlotte Observer

    Eventually, though, the movie turns into a "Touched By An Angel" knockoff that dares us not to reach for a hankie while we succumb to its comforting message. show more

    I just happened to see this movie on TV today and it was one of the best I ever saw. I was crying at the end. Kevin Costner, you are a fabulous actor and make such nice movies to help others open their eyes to how life truly is. I hope to make it as an extra in one of your movies.
