Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This is without question the dumbest horror movie of recent years. There is simply no way to piece together its fractured shards."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"An empty enterprise that provides a few moments of goofy fun, Mirrors reflects back nothing."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"Even the most forgiving fans of supernatural horror will balk at Mirrors' cookie-cutter characterizations, predictable shocks, and ridiculous, punishing plot."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"Sutherland's natural stoicism does make the more risible developments and dialogue a bit easier to stomach (a moment when he goes all Jack Bauer on a nun comes to mind)."
‑ William Goss, Cinematical
"As Joe Bob Briggs used to say: "too much plot gets in the way of the story.""
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"The director, Alexandre Aja, knows how to reflect the fear in people's heads, but he gets too ensnared in a backstory that's just gothic business as usual."
‑ Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly
"Mirrors is too lugubrious and misconceived to reflect the talent of those involved."
‑ Jason Anderson, Globe and Mail
"Brutal horror movie offers little to reflect on."
‑ James Rocchi, Common Sense Media
"Alexandre Aja must have thought that just because he's basing a film around mirrors acting irrationally, he can proceed to remove logic from all aspects of the film."
‑ Anders Wotzke, Moviedex
"...often far more entertaining than it has any right to be."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"How could horror be so dull?"
‑ Bruce Demara, Toronto Star
"A minor chiller and major downer from the talented Alexandre Aja."
‑ Jeannette Catsoulis, New York Times
"Kudos to you if you can figure out what in god's name that ending is supposed to indicate, because I'm lost at this time..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"Clunky dialogue sets up the film, unlikely backstory drives it along, and it all concludes in a ludicrous cataclysm of cinematic hyperbole."
‑ Simon Weaving, Screenwize
"I love a good horror movie, and this offered something different from slasher remakes and zombie flicks."
‑ Kevin Carr, 7M Pictures
