    The Lazarus Effect

    ★★★

    This was something that I have been interested in watching for a while, though for the life of me I can’t remember the initial reason why I became interested, and I finally found the time to do so. It was okay.

    In the first half of the film, a majority of the jurors (besides #8) didn’t seem all that bright. I understood perfectly what 8…
