Light on thrills, chemistry, or frights, Flatliners squanders a fun concept before wrapping it up in perfunctory fashion, guaranteeing none of its cast are likely to turn up in a new version in another 27 years time.

I guess we can give Flatliners at least one star for knowing the cliches of scriptwriting.

An agonizingly boring remake of a movie about the danger of bringing things back from the dead.
