Visuals and attitude -- not for kids.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie has extensive, intense, and graphic peril and violence, disturbing images, and suicides. Characters are injured and killed. There is some strong language, though less than in many R-rated movies. Characters drink, and a character is a chain smoker and is dying of lung cancer. Some viewers may be concerned about the portrayal of theological concepts, clergy members, angels, and demons.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about their own notions of heaven and hell and free will. What matters most to John? To Angela? To Midnite?

Top Critic Reviews

Fresh: Keanu Reeves is -- let me just get this off my chest -- very good.

- Andrew O'Hehir, Salon.com, Saturday, February 19, 2005

Rotten: I deeply loathe the Heaven-and-Hell genre to which this cinematic comic-book spectacular belongs.

- Andrew Sarris, New York Observer, Saturday, October 18, 2008

Rotten: Blazes few new trails and bogs down in a confusing narrative muddle.

- Brian Lowry, Variety, Saturday, October 18, 2008

When a friend once recommended it to me, I read the plot and even the trailer seemed promising, but when I finally watched the Movie I just to myself never again.

inaccurate spiritual concepts all the way through, kind of silly and poorly concieved with lackluster performances.
