  • Heartless seems eternally at war with its own genre, unwilling to succumb to bloody mayhem yet neither smart nor coherent enough to transcend horror convention. show more

  • A supernatural take on "Death Wish" meets "Faust," Heartless is an uneasy mixture of B-movie shocks, social commentary and sentimentality that shows a potent imagination at work. show more

  • Effective jump-shocks and a strong turn from Eddie Marsan mask an over-complicated last act. show more

    Didn\'t quite get this one. It started out real good and then crashed and burned. It was trying to be something it is not and the characters other than the leading part were not convincing or captivating in any way. Like a weak effort to imitate masterpieces like the sixth sense. Epic fail.

    Honestly i only bought the movie cause i'm a big fan of Across the Universe and Jim Sturgess. Think he's real believable in all his roles. This is no exception. He takes on this role with great charisma and innocence throughout the first 75% of the movie. Then goes from one extreme to another in a matter of a handshake (spoiler).'s a great movie and I recommend to anyone just wanting to watch a great/scary flick. A+
