Top Critic Reviews
Rotten: "Godsend" suffers from a feeble plot, laughable dialogue, and thriller cliches that barely effect the characteristic jolts of the genre.
- Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Rotten: A pea-brained hodgepodge of The Omen (1976), The Sixth Sense (1999), and about 30 Grade-Z Bela Lugosi mad-scientist movies.
- David Edelstein, Slate, Sunday, June 6, 2004
Rotten: Not just a bad thriller but also a thing of pain.

Further proof, if any were needed, that Robert De Niro will make any old tripe if the fee is right. This is an unbelievably awful, instantly forgettable paranormal chiller. The parents of a genetically cloned child spend the entire film trying to prove there's a malevolent kink in his DNA and then, when they find this to be true, they choose to ignore it! How's that for plotting? The kid isn't creepy enough to make an impact, and the film is so painfully dull it feels three times longer than it actually is.
