Top Critics' Reviews
Rotten: The American version of Kiyoshi Kurosawa's Pulse mimics the plot fundamentals, but lacks any traces of Mr. Kurosawas creepy minimalism and conceptual rigor.
Rotten: It would have been a lot scarier if the film's college kids, haunted by comrades who stare back at them from cyber-hell, looked like they had lives worth saving.
Rotten: A dumbed-down remake of Kiyoshi Kurosawa's disturbingly abstract Japanese horror film.
Rotten: This techno-themed horror film isn't nearly as scary as watching your computer crash.
The only reason I'm writing this review..
The only reason I am really writing this review is for one of the stars in the movie. Ian Somerhalder <3 He is freaking amaising and I feel he is under-rated. He was pretty popular for a while on the smash hit "LOST" (which I am totally addicted to), but then he was killed off in the first season and people just seemed to forget about him :( If you took at chance to watch some of his movies and his shows, you would see what a great actor he is. He is going to star in the upcoming CW hit "The Vampire Diaries" and I think that once everyone watches him in that, they will all go gaga for Ian, and I just want to say.. I had dibs :) He is totally gorgeous and is one of the best actors I've seen in a long time! Ian does great if people watch him! And let me set the record straight... I am Ian Somerhalders biggest fan EVER! <3 Watch it.. he is amaising!
now I know..
So this is the movie that they were talking about in "Forgetting Sarah Marshall". I thought it was just a joke but apparently it's actually a movie. You'd probably want to rent this movie first if you really want to watch it.
It's okay.. but nothing to write home about
The Japanese version of this movie is wayyyyy scarier. This version doesn’t quite measure up as far as horrors go. There was supposed to be a deeper message in this movie; more than just the scare. I think they (writer, director, whomever) missed the boat on truly getting the creepiness and possibility of this story coming to real life. It was kind of a letdown; Maybe worth a rent.
