ReviewSource Variety
Review Sarah Michelle Gellar finds herself experiencing visions related to another woman's unsolved murder years earlier in supernatural drama "The Return." Time-killer chiller reps an undistinguished U.S. debut for U.K. helmer Asif Kapadia, though the undernourished script may be most at fault. Forgettable PG-13 pic will particularly strike fans of harder-edged recent horror pix as much ado about not much...With its bleak settings and drained color palette, "The Return" is more self-consciously somber than the script's logic gaps, uninspired character writing and general familiarity can justify...Aussie TV star O'Brien has presence, though the pic doesn't do much with it (and doesn't bother changing his character's appearance at all for 15-years-earlier flashbacks).
Reviewer Dennis Harvey
ReviewRating 5
Review Asif Kapadia's The Return is a visually sumptuous but emotionally stillborn thriller that may be a bit too modest for its own good. It's the kind of film that would have worked well as the bottom half of a double bill in the 1940s - the story is slight but intriguing, and though the movie doesn't make much sense, it has style to burn and a few truly scary moments. Unfortunately, the concept of the B-theatrical feature has been more or less dead for over 50 years now, and The Return feels anticlimactic in the age of more ambitious recent horror releases like The Descent and Hostel...subtlety isn't always a virtue in a thriller, and Kapadia's low-key approach gives way to lethargy in the movie's final third.
