Insight A Review

"Insight is a twisty little thriller that never lets up."- Yahoo! Movies

"There's a twist that would make Hitchcock jealous." - Mondo Film Guide


 Directed by Richard Gabai  and stars Natalie Zea ("Justified," "Dirty Sexy Money," "Hung"), Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints, Saw 3D: The Final Chapter, "The Young and the Restless"), Christopher Lloyd (Back to the Future Trilogy, The Addams Family), Adam Baldwin ("Chuck," Full Metal Jacket, The Right Temptation) and Thomas Ian Nicholas (American Reunion, American Pie, "Party of Five").

While attempting to save the life of a fatally-stabbed young woman, ER nurse Kaitlyn is accidentally electrocuted by a backfiring defibrillator. Upon awakening, she begins to experience memories that are not hers, but rather those of the now-deceased victim. With her sanity in question and nowhere to turn, Kaitlyn must weave through the woman’s past and piece together her memories before the killer strikes again.

The 411 by Maria:
OK...we were interested through some of the movie. There was an attempt to create a very dramatic movie where you are uncertain what is real and what is reality.  Unfortunately it fell a little short and has been done before and better but it was still entertaining enough and twisted enough that I didn't know what was going on until the last 45 minutes.

Insight is about a nurse named Kaitlyn who appears to be the only one to notice a dying woman named Allison wake before her heart is shocked and manages to say, He loved me. I don't remember. 
I did perk up when I realized that Kaitlyn's nurse friend Valerie is played by my Facebook friend and favorite TV show's former actress Lesley-Ann Brandt.

Kaitlyn is taking care of her Cancer stricken mother and has enough on her plate without the sudden visions that seemingly overtake her life; visions of a brutally murdered victim. 

She heads to the police and tells her story and begins to try on her own to unravel the facts. Putting her life in danger. 

We were basically waiting for something. We wanted to like it, it wasn't complete rubbish but I was glad I hadn't seen it in the movies. Seemed like more of a made for TV movie and while I didn't figure it out right away, when I got it, I was hoping for a twist. 

We couldn't figure this detective out. His too big hat and his blood shot eye had us thinking there was more to his character but unfortunately no. 

We are thriller junkies and this wasn't one.
If you like light drama and get scared easy, this is a good one for you.

2.5 Stars from us!
