Comments– I heard all of my twitter friends, and pretty much everyone else that mentioned this movie, say that it sucked, but Bridgette insisted we rent it. Unfortunately, this wasn’t like The Forgotten where I was pleasantly surprised: this movie just sucked. From the WAY over-the-top Pro-Life speeches, to the long-winded OTHER speeches that were simply boring as hell to listen to, to the ridiculously bad story development: this movie was bad. It is hard to find any redeeming qualities about this film except maybe Willa Holland (yes, from The OC, which I used to be obsessed with) in a mini-skirt, and some cool action sequences. The film looked exceptional on Blu-Ray, it’s just too bad this overtly pro-religion movie wasn’t more entertaining. Bad-Mediocre.
Branden has been a film fan since he was young, roaming the halls of Blockbuster Video, trying to find the grossest, scariest looking VHS covers to rent and watch alone in the basement. It wasn’t until recently, though, that Branden started seeking out the classics of cinema, and began to develop his true passion for the art form. Branden approaches each film with the unique perspective of having studied the art from the inside, having both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in acting. He has been a film critic since 2010, and has previously written for Inside Pulse Movies, We Love Cult, and Diehard Gamefan. His biggest achievement as a film critic, to date, has been founding Cinefessions and turning it from a personal blog to a true film website, housing hundreds of film and television reviews, and dozens of podcasts.
