Christopher R. Smith's rating of the film The Rite

Not particularly remarkable, but as an unabashed fan of these kinds of movies, I have to say I enjoyed it despite its numerous flaws. The plot is weak and predictable, but there are a handful of effective sequences and the cast is certainly capable - in fact, it's worth watching for Anthony Hopkins' delightfully whacked-out performance alone. Kinda cheesy, but good fun.
