The Return.. I won't be going back...By PaulaWestwood (397 reviews) from Ashton-Under-Lyne , 24 Jan 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]This really looked the deal, the previews set it up to be a fast paced, interesting thriller. It was a slow dirge that had some interest at the end to explain it all, but took a highway to nowhere getting there. I dont want to burst the bubble too much, as I am sure some will fairly enjoy this, but it was pretty tame, no shocks, no surprises, and very laborious to watch. Normally I don't mind S.M. Gellar too much, but in this she is pretty expressionless and I would rather see Uri Gellar. All in all I could not forgive myself if I reccomended this - and though its not a total waste of time, I would pass it over for something more interesting.

OK ThrillerBy a customer from Hayle , 15 Feb 2009Not a bad thriller film, if a little too slow paced for some..It just about kept my interest throughout..Nicely wrapped explaination to storyline..
But as i said some will find it hard going to be bothered to watch until the end!!
awfulBy a customer from Plymouth , 03 Feb 2009slow,boring and pointless
Understated and effectiveBy a customer from London , 02 Jan 2009The film has clearly been tinkered with, presumably at the insistence of the studio following the test screenings. It could well be that they concluded there was a need to make a film that would appeal to the same audience that went to see The Grudge. That being the case, they made a mistake.
The Return does not impress as a great film, but is a certainly a decent film. I have watched it several times now and enjoy it a great deal. It has its faults. Its not giving us anything new, but it is effective, if probably a little too slow moving and understated to suit all tastes.
DullBy a customer from Cardiff , 02 Dec 2008This film was just dull. Nothing really happened. At all.
boringBy a customer from Leigh-on-Sea , 19 Nov 2008total rubbish !! felt like turning it off after 30 mins.
