In Costner's best moments, he makes us absolutely believe this character and feel his pain.
50
Costner is convincing as the hero, ably supported by Joe Morton as a short-tempered supervisor and Kathy Bates as a feisty neighbor. Dragonfly has little chance of "Ghost"-like popularity, though.
50
Charlotte Observer
Eventually, though, the movie turns into a "Touched By An Angel" knockoff that dares us not to reach for a hankie while we succumb to its comforting message.
40
Though the film springs an okay twist at the very end, there's a good chance you won't be awake to see it.
38
Baltimore Sun
Painstakingly painful.
38
The Globe and Mail (Toronto)
Dragonfly has more plot than a figure-skating competition, and just about as much credibility.
38
New York Post
Hollywood movies are rarely as contemptuous of the audience as Dragonfly, with its half-witted, treacly New Age sappiness and its mechanical borrowings from other, better supernatural thrillers.
30
Austin Chronicle
Very little here begs to be paid attention to.
30
Variety
Costner's earnest performance is a major plus for Dragonfly, keeping the picture grounded in some semblance of reality even as it becomes progressively more fantastical.
20
The A.V. Club
Awash in cheap shocks and corny sentiment, Dragonfly aspires to be an inspirational thriller about one man's spiritual journey, but it takes little time for him to reach his destination. All that's left for him and the audience to do is solve a riddle unfit for the back of a cereal box.
