Five medical students, obsessed by what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring experiment: by stopping their hearts for short periods, each triggers a near-death experience - giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife.
When the network of satellites designed to control the global climate starts to attack Earth, it's a race against the clock for its creator to uncover the real threat before a worldwide Geostorm wipes out everything and everyone.
A boy haunted by visions of a dark tower from a parallel reality teams up with the tower's disillusioned guardian to stop an evil warlock known as the Man in Black who plans to use the boy to destroy the tower and open the gates of Hell.
A medical student, Courtney, is obsessed with the idea of the afterlife, wanting to find out what happens after death. She invites fellow students Jamie and Sophia to join her in an experiment, in an unused hospital room: using defibrillation to stop her heart for sixty seconds whilst recording her brain, and then reviving her. She assures them they would not be held responsible for any accidents. Sophia is against this, but Jamie does it anyway. After sixty seconds, they panic as they are unable to revive her, but eventually manage to with the help of fellow student Ray. Later, Marlo, a rival of Ray, arrives and learns of the experiment..
At the end of the movie, a voice-over says: "Some lines should not be crossed", which is the tagline of the 1990 version. See more »
A written statement would in no manner absolve the residents from deaths performing the "flatliner" experiment. Courtney writing one after stealing the Propifol to perform the experiment on herself would simply make the people assisting her complicit with several crimes, up to and including her death.

When we look at this particular remake movie there is not much to say, unfortunately. About acting, I can't say that they were bad but I also can't say they were good, well except Ellen Page. The story ise good, dying and experiencing the other life and coming back. But I can't go further on this review without saying that the secreenplay is bad. It is. I don't even think that the makers don't sure what kinda movie they making. They put horror, thril, drama and love and stuff. That is why we just watched 109 minutes movie, which it is unnecessarily long for this script. They put not understable scenes which they have no point. I guess they try to make the movie more deep. Well, hope to see you all in better jobs, and you decided to watch it who am I to stop.
