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.
A bland, fatally boring bunch of spiritual hogwash supposedly based on a true story of an exorcist who becomes possessed himself. Dull from the word go, and a generic script and lackluster performances don't help.
Definitely not as bad as everyone is making it seem. Pleasantly atmospheric, with solid if not super inspired performances. A little slow-paced near the end. Nice to see a movie taking a stance on religion instead of the same old "whatever you want to believe is great!" crap. Overall a pretty average religious thriller, entertaining and probably not something I'd watch again.
not entirely sure why ppl thought it was boring... creeped the shit out of me most of the time haha, hopkins was great too! Maybe the whole atheist/serendipitous believer theme intrigued me more than most ppl... solid entertainment IMO
Nonostante un Anthony Hopkins come sempre magistrale, il film è un pò deludente su tutta la linea. Il soggetto è un "Possessione demoniaca modello standard", prevedibile con precisione da chiunque abbia visto almeno l'Esorcista. Banale, lento e ripetitivo, peccato per il povero Mr.Hopkins.
Terrible and so slow. The cinematography is probably one of the best things of the film. I'm only giving it two ★★ because of Anthony Hopkins. Father Lucas Trevant is the strongest and creepiest role Hopkins has played since Hannibal Lecter and his best role overall in years.
Sin duda, esta película tenía mucho potencial, sobre todo con un actor que es Anthony Hopkins... te llevan por una historia mas convincente y un poco distante de las típicas de exorcismos; sin embargo no crece la emoción y se queda en un solo plano, dejando mucho que desear.
