Summary: A surprising and mysterious tale of death.
Bruce Willis plays a child psychiatrist who suffers a gunshot wound from one of his former patients, one that he wasn't able to cure. A year later he tries to help a troubled little boy who can see ghosts that no one else can see. It's a pretty interesting story with very unique plot twists, especially near the end. The film is pretty well done, but I didn't find it outstanding. Personally, I'm waiting for Willis to return to action/adventure films.

Summary: That Is One Creepy Kid
One of the more interesting films I've seen recently, like Twelve Monkeys it demands repeated viewings. The little kid is excellent as far as little kids go. Several visuals from the film stuck with me long after. I recommend watching this late at night, preferably with a full bladder.

Summary: Do Not Miss This Movie
I saw this twice and enjoyed it both times. The plot is absolutely perfect -- tight, nothing extra, nothing stupid, nothing that doesn't make sense. Beautiful. Stuck with me for a long time afterwards, looking forward to DVD release.

Summary: quality filmmaking
Great acting, great story, great production values. Chilling but not terrifying, totally memorable story of a little boy who can talk to the dead. Bruce Willis flexes his acting muscles and they work! I loved it

Summary: well-acted with a surprise at the end.
I like Bruce Willis anyway. But the movie tended to drag at times. The ending was quite a surprise which made it worth watching again. A lot of symbolism was used, if that is your thing.

Summary: Astounding
I was chilled to the bone by this one. Bruce Willis was surprisingly believable in this picture. The child actor is talented beyond his years and will make a large mark on Hollywood if he is not exploited by adults. The twists and turns in this movie will keep you guessing and the surprises at the end will come straight out of nowhere. You must see this.

Summary: Enjoyable
This movie was one that everyone demanded I go see, and that 'I wouldn't believe the ending'. Well, the ending got spoiled for me long before I had a chance to go see it, and that made me wait until just recently to see it.. Bruce Willis gives a good performance as a psychologist, it's nice to see he can act without a gun in his hand, and the star of the movie (the boy) is extremely talented (or really well cast... time will probably tell). As I knew the 'trick' my first watching was tainted, but even with this information, the movie was well worth watching, and one of the best movies I've seen in a while.
