The New York Times
The American version of Kiyoshi Kurosawa's "Pulse" mimics the plot fundamentals, but lacks any traces of Mr. Kurosawa's creepy minimalism and conceptual rigor. Full Review
Frank Scheck
The Hollywood Reporter
A horror film dealing with the terrors lurking via our computers, cell phones and other electronic devices, Pulse isn't nearly as scary as watching your hard drive crash or having your BlackBerry conk out in the middle of a vital call. Full Review
Jack Mathews
New York Daily News
Hideously ugly to look at and not even worth following. Full Review
James Berardinelli
It's not scary, it's not chilling, and it's not interesting. Full Review

The Onion (A.V. Club)
Ultimately, the glacial pace kills Pulse. What was dreadful and trance-like in the original feels here like nothing-much-at-all sandwiched between some stock horror jolts. Full Review
