There is something strange about 'Dragonfly'. It is not a thriller inits subject but it deals with it as if it's a thriller. Even morestrange, in some scenes it actually succeeds in that. I mean, when yourwife has died and she is trying to reach you from the other side issomething else than simply seeing dead people. Your wife probably hasthe best intentions and although it is creepy you do not have to bescared of your dead wife. I guess. The man who thinks his dead wife istrying to reach him is Joe Darrow (Kevin Costner). Is he going mad, apremise for a dramatic film, or is he really connecting to the otherside?<br><br>At times where his wife is communicating with Joe, at least to Joe'sknowledge, the film breaths a creepy atmosphere with a cinematographyand score that make things suspenseful. But the film does not have itsfocus on whether Joe is going mad or not, but on how scary it is when adead person talks to you. That there is actually suspense shows thatthere is some nice film-making to be found here. The premise isinteresting, although not that new, but especially the final act in thefilm goes wrong at crucial points. There is a moment where I thoughtthe film was over, I will not reveal where, but at that time certainthings were left in the middle. It felt like the right ending. But thenthe film continues, providing it with an ending that must have poppedinto many heads from the audience, probably dismissed by a lot forbeing too ridiculous.<br><br>Still, the premise and the first hour are good enough to keep usentertained and although it should not work as a thriller, it does.Watching it like that without thinking too much could help you likethis film in one way or another.
