Review: A Cure for Wellness


IMDB Summary:

An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps but soon suspects that the spa’s miraculous treatments are not what they seem.



My Review:

I don’t even know where to start with this one. I was pretty pumped and liked most of it, but then things got really odd! I loved the sounds and visionary aspects throughout, though.

Lockhart was annoying, why he didn’t crutch his way out of there in the first place was ridiculous. I couldn’t connect with Hannah or why Lockhart was even bothering with worrying about her.

The only actor I liked was Jason Isaacs because he had that whole creep factor going on, and you didn’t know whether to trust him or not. Like I said, it was good until it got super strange in the end which could have been cool, but it did not work here.

  1. A mixed bag. Definitely some great visuals. Liked the look of the institute. Isaacs gave a strong performance. The overlength hurt it. Especially when it is easy to see certain plot developments coming from a mile away. My grade:B-

  2. It was a disappointment; great production sets, filming, and atmospherics, but once the story premise was laid bare the tension curve goes the wrong way for most of its long two and half hours. The tired old vampiric meltdown cliches made for a silly finale.
