Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: Upsetting that it had to go for the easy genre closer instead of exploring the universal parental mentality that Danika had going for it until the final half-hour.

- Erik Childress, eFilmCritic.com, Saturday, October 21, 2006

Rotten: The message is unexplored and eventually buried under an avalanche of cheap shock tactics and pointlessly dizzying visuals.

- Josh Bell, Las Vegas Weekly, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: may not really be worth all the toil.

You can't protect you family from everything. This movie will be confusing unless you pay real good attention to it.

It was hard to explain both What I Enjoyed and Hated about "Danika". I am not a Horror, Scary, Premontion entrapenuer, but a Lethargic Enity in this Film Genre. That's one reason why I might have ebjoned, and loathed it unlike many others that have been passed into theathers. It surpassed my expectations , although I saw It cause Marisa Tomie made the prewiews so enticing, that I'm surprised to all those that did see the preview for "Danika", Didn't see the film.. I strongly Reccomend you atleast try to grasp the film's Intentions, and Atleast give it a shot. I am sure, you will not recieve or get what you think or thought you would.

It's hard to talk much about this one without giving the ending away. Suffice to say, Marisa Tomei fans should like this. I don't think the ending makes or breaks the film but it does offer an explanation for things. Danika reminded me of some of the Korean films I've seen recently, the way the genre clues aren't as clear as they are in most American films. Danika mixed some horror-, and mystery-type elements in with the drama to good effect.
