Movie Info

After the death of his brother in Afghanistan, Jacob Singer is finally getting his life back together. He has a beautiful wife, a new born child and a successful career as surgeon in a VA hospital. When a stranger approaches him and tells him that his brother is actually alive and living in an underground shelter with other homeless vets, Jacob's life starts to unravel. He begins hallucinating, believes he is being followed by violent attackers and becomes paranoid about the truth of what really happened to his brother. When he discovers that his brother is alive and addicted to an experimental drug, he uncovers a secret he never could have been prepared for.

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (7) | Fresh (1) | Rotten (20)

  • Only the commitment from the always-solid Michael Ealy saves it from being one of the worst movies of the year.

    Aug 23, 2019 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…
  • The new "Jacob's Ladder" plays like a half-hearted sketch of the movie it could have been.

    Aug 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • The new "Jacob's Ladder" is less strange and scary, and more mindlessly action-packed. It doesn't feel like a dream. It's more like hearing a stranger describe a dream.

    Aug 23, 2019 | Full Review…
  • A shabby, low-rent thriller with a few vaguely interesting ideas and an ensemble that deserves better material.

    Aug 22, 2019 | Full Review…
  • As the plot moves forward, it loses interest in the metaphysical torment that made the original so gripping.

    Aug 22, 2019 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…
  • It was funhouse schlock with pretensions of seriousness, but a lot of its visual ideas oozed their way into the genre gene pool.
