Whether or not you'll like this movie depends on what type of movies you like. If you really expect a thriller, you're going to be disappointed. If you're watching the movie for Jennifer Connelly, then you'll enjoy it for her amazing acting as always and the lack of thrills won't bother you as much. She can turn a slow moving movie into one that actually holds your attention throughout. Her presence makes any movie that much more enjoyable.
I'm not into the Japanese converted thriller/horror movies and enjoyed the fact that Dark Water was more interesting and plot developing than thrilling. I think Jennifer Connelly's an amazing actress, if anyone else stars in it - I would rate it a 1. Another HUGE plus is that the ending couldn't have tied up all the twists and pieces any better. Most of the time the ending makes the movie - in this case it helped the movie a lot. See the movie with an open mind or don't see it at all.
Oh yea - the advertisement commercials couldn't have been more off for this movie. They completely skewed everyone's expectations of the movie and hence the low rating.
