A clever thriller, bolstered by three great performances.
Bruce Demara, Toronto Star  full review
 
The film doesn't offer the sense of release, or of surprise, that it seems to take for granted.
Adam Litovitz, Globe and Mail  full review
 
By strict definition, any movie featuring Robert De Niro as a spoon-bending clairvoyant superstar ought to hold a few cards up its sleeve.
Amy Biancolli, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
A lot of talent comes up empty in "Red Lights," a thriller that doesn't thrill.
Bill Goodykoontz, Arizona Republic  full review
 
With the sort of last-minute plot twist that sank M. Night Shyamalan's career, Red Lights comes to an unexpected, risible end.
Rene Rodriguez, Miami Herald  full review
 
One of the worst movies of this or any other year.

Cortes made "Buried," which means he has more good work to offer. Better luck next film.
Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune  full review
 
For its first two acts, the movie had me in its grip. Then it comes apart.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
 
Red Lights culminates with a twist ending that doesn't just change everything that came previously, it actually negates the entirety of the film.
Christy Lemire, Associated Press  full review
 
How did a cast like this sign on for a movie like this?
Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger  full review
 
One of the most preposterous and incoherent films of 2012...
Lou Lumenick, New York Post  full review
 
It's not so much the narrative sleight-of-hand that is irksome, as the implication that there may have been a better movie lurking in there the whole time.
Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
Someone should have stopped Red Lights.
Claudia Puig, USA Today  full review
 
They should have known that a levitating De Niro was simply a seance too far.
Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times  full review
 
Cortes continues to challenge magical thinking, but ultimately submits to it. The only mystery is which of the characters will turn the screw of the twist ending.
 
Red Lights goes astray on so many levels that I gave up trying to figure it out before the end of the second reel.
Rex Reed, New York Observer  full review
 
This half-clever mess of a thriller, Red Lights, gets some mileage out of its novel premise.
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
Red Lights reaches for a The Sixth Sense-style twist and whiffs it completely.
Mary F. Pols, TIME Magazine  full review
