6 Souls (Shelter) Movie Reviews
User reviews on 6 Souls (Shelter)
Here’s a head scratcher for you: what is an actress like Julianne Moore doing in such derivative tripe as 6 Souls? As one of the modern era’s most dependably talented actresses, we are used to seeing her in smart and sensitive films. 6 Souls is so banal that it seems to have been assembled by the same si. copioneers who brought us Saved by the Bell.
The story is basically just a set-up for Jonathan Rhys Meyers to hallucinate at every turn. Moore plays a forensic psychiatrist named Dr. Cara Harding who tries to treat a patient named David (Rhys Meyers) who seems to be suffering from multiple personality disorder. The conundrum here is that all of his personalities seems to be the souls of six murder victims. Hence the title.
Cara isn’t sure if David is faking his disorder – how can anyone channel the dead as multiple personalities? Then again, he seems to know more than anyone possibly could have. It sounds slightly interesting, but it isn’t, thanks to the lazy script that is riddled with dumbed down horror movie clichés. It’s just slight.
I did not like this film and definitely do not recommend seeing it in the theaters. I found the film to be incredibly stupid, boring, way too long and very offensive. Basically, the message of the film is that all atheists are going to hell and I am so tired of hearing that. The film is ridden with cliches and it is very unoriginal and I was very confused by the pacing of this film, it was so all over the place, so chaotic. I did think that the performances were pretty good and I felt kind of bad for the actors who had to be in this film, I think Julianne Moore and Jonathan Reys Myers are too good of the actors to be in films like this one. Overall, this film is not worth your time or money and I hope you will skip it and find a better film.
