      Critics Consensus

      A murky thriller with few chills, Godsend features ludicrous dialogue, by-the-numbers plotting, and an excess of cheap shocks. Read critic reviews

        An absolutely not terrifying bio-horror. Scientist intends to play God by cloning a deceased son of a couple, little did they know the son isn't quite the son they had before. It was predictable and absolutely disastrous, essentially an Omen copycat. The only shock I got was not from the plot but from a woman knocking on the car window, yes, that was the only shock.

        It is not a completely terrible movie, but if bad, at first it gets a little slow and boring but after a while of 10 minutes will put something interesting, but ultimately one that is lost and later rescues her with a story that could give more, and very few moments of real tension in this film is quda a failed attempt to make a good movie.

        Started out real good but then just died on me

        Pretty horrible. The premise was ridiculous. Most of it made no sense. Perhaps Robert DeNiro had some large debts he had to pay off and therefore had no other choice but to take this role...that's the only way I can explain it. Please don't watch this movie.
