Consensus: Despite a thought-provoking premise and Clint Eastwood's typical flair as director, Hereafter fails to generate much compelling drama, straddling the line between poignant sentimentality and hokey tedium.

The result may not plumb Shyamalanian awfulness, but if you did get to the afterlife you'd hope they weren't playing this movie.

The last 30 minutes of the film hint at what it might have been if someone had whipped that script into shape; the idea of exploring experiences of the afterlife was a great one, and Eastwood certainly has the vision to pull it off.

Eastwood fails to infuse any moments of suspense or heart into the story and when all is said and done, Hereafter is an anticlimactic, sleepy and momentum-less mess of a film.

The film is a deeply compassionate, decidedly secular and somewhat plodding meditation on what matters now and what lies beyond this life.

Though I found Hereafter meandering and occasionally sentimental, I couldn't help but admire Clint Eastwood's ambition in taking on-headfirst-the greatest fact of human existence.

This movie isn't about anything. This emperor is wearing no clothes.

Eastwood and Morgan skillfully and slowly unveil each character's struggles and then send them on their way to inevitable encounters with one another.

I realize it's bad manners to be flip about a movie that emblazons its heart on its sleeve. But Hereafter, soggy with portentous uplift, invites that response.

Movie Nation

Clint Eastwood's late life/late career fascination with mortality, death and grieving devolves, at long last, into a cheap parlor trick in Hereafter.
