A Cure For Wellness was the clear winner!
A Cure For Wellness a psychological thriller with an intriguing plot and a mysterious trailer with Shutter Island vibes; this was enough to get many people excited for the film. Psychological thrillers are usually gripping, unpredictable and shocking films which many people enjoy, so it’s understandable why many people were anticipating A Cure For Wellness. However since its release, A Cure For Wellness has received the mixed reviews treatment.
Is A Cure For Wellness a gripping, unpredictable and mysterious thriller which pulls the audience in? Or just another underwhelming thriller which doesn’t reach its full potential.

The “I really liked this film, despite the problems in the final act” Reviews
@popcornoncouch I really liked the first two acts of the film. Good tension & cinematography. Final act takes the narrative too far. 4/5

@popcornoncouch I liked it. 95% of it was pretty decent. Nice cinematography. Little messed up. Not 100% on the final act.

The “This movie was too long and boring” Reviews
@popcornoncouch Overly long, tone deaf, the third act is a complete mess. Nicely shot at least! 1.5/5

@popcornoncouch It was too long with nothing interesting to show. Too predictable, and painfully pseudo cryptic. Nicely shot though. 2/5

The “This is a stylish film with good qualities but still has some problems” Reviews
— Angus McGregor (@AngusMcGregor11) 11 March 2017
@popcornoncouch It’s a weird, beautiful, taboo, vapid, and ugly in all ways. This will be a cult film people discover in years & love. 3.5/5
— Lolo (@lololovesfilms) 12 March 2017
Great performances, nice design, creepy atmosphere
Overlong, narrative issues, unnecessary backstory, predictable

@popcornoncouch I liked it better than I thought I would. Not great but it has some surprising qualities.
