Less than halfway through, you wonder why an actor of Daniel Craig's
stature would star in a haunted house movie, especially one so dreary,
dull and depressing. Then you think, this is not a haunted house
movie, it's SHUTTER ISLAND. Or maybe THE SHINING. But in fact, it's a
Hitchcockian murder mystery — and a dreary, dull and depressing one
at that. With no assistance from Rachel Weisz (like the Kates,
Beckinsale and Bosworth, she's a moderately attractive actress of
little impression from movie to movie), aided only by an underused
Naomi Watts, Craig sleepwalks throughout, echoing our own snores in
the seats. A rare misfire from the great Jim Sheridan. Don't waste
your time. — Jeff Schultz
