The new Flatliners may have been billed as a sequel, but the lacklustre flop ended up being little more than a remake. That's because, even though original Flatliners star Kiefer Sutherland promised he was reprising his character, there wasn't anything tying him, or much else, to the previous flick. Actually, let me rephrase that: There could've been something that connected the two films, but the scene was deleted because it was for old people.

Flatliners is a remarkable film. Specifically, it's remarkable in that it takes an intriguing and ripe concept and does almost nothing with it. Instead, it fulfils the promise of its title by offering up a boring, lifeless story, fills it with dull, unsympathetic characters, and then keeps the thrills to an absolute minimum.
