Watch flatliners 2017 full movie online. Five medical students, hoping to gain insight into the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment. By stopping their hearts for short periods of time, each triggers a near-death experience. As the investigation becomes more and more perilous, they are forced to confront the sins of their pasts, as well as contend with the paranormal consequences of trespassing to the other side.
Starring a cast of soon-to-be-huge stars, including Julia Roberts and Kiefer Sutherland, who has a supporting role here; but its premise, which could have opened the door to a visionary work of sci-fi horror, settled into a sort of gothic self-help drama groove, with the medical students realizing that the seemingly supernatural goings-on triggered by their experiments in “flatlining” were manifestations of their past misdeeds. Director Niels Arden Oplev’s remake, adapted by Ben Ripley from Peter Filardi’s original script, sticks to that template, changing key details here and there while embracing a style that stirs every current horror movie visual cliche into a jagged paste.
Diego Luna’s earnest and responsible Ray, Nina Dobrev’s flirty hardcore Marlo, James Norton’s rich kid Casanova Jamie, Kiersey Clemons’ stressed-out and mommy-dominated Sophia—to administer heart-stopping drugs to kill her for three minutes and heart paddles to wake her back up so that she can report what she saw. She experiences a sensation of flying and sees angles on the campus and the city that she’s never personally experienced. This is enough to convince her colleagues—except for the cautious and ethical Ray, who’s there mainly to guard against tragedy—to undergo the same treatment.
Courtney is visited by an apparition that’s obviously connected to her feelings of guilt over her sister’s death. In short order, Jamie, Marlo and Sophia all begin experiencing creepy events and disturbing visions. By the time the movie reaches its midpoint, there’s no question of where the film has to go before the credits roll.
