User Review

Ratings went from 7.1 to a 4.3 – not right

Rating: 9/10

NOTE: This film went from a 7.1 to a 4.3 in three days. Apparently, 200
people gave it a '1' from an illegal downloading, teen site. This is
what teen's call a 'mob' hit which speaks volumes about who they are.

SPOILERS Hollywood loves movies about the devil, but this is different.
It sees it from a faith-based perspective and focuses on a real Lucifer
from the Bible. Whether it's classics, modern stories or the collective
works of particular authors, films are forever being produced with
adapted screenplays. Well acted by everyone involved, it is an
entertaining piece of work which leaves you thinking throughout before
sticking on a conclusion you might well have predicted beforehand, but
which you still enjoy seeing it reach.

You don't see many moments in this film when the acting isn't superb.
Regaining a form not seen for a fair few years, McDowell in particular
is brilliant as a man who exploits the system for his own gain. He is
closely challenged however by both Luke and his co-counsel who give
admirable performances in their respective roles.

The film as a whole is also incredibly clever. Leading you in multiple
directions, the constant game of 'cat and mouse' is brilliantly played
out with some noticeable surprises as well as some rather unexpected

It's true that there are moments when the story drags slightly and you
find yourself feeling a bit bored, but the majority of the time the
story is fast flowing and incredibly entertaining.

Anyway, whatever your complaints about the film's faith message, the
story is mostly entertaining and well acted. Led by a superb
performance by Malcolm McDowell, when it's on a high the film is up
there with the finest thrillers around in years. It's well worth
watching, even if you normally can't stand this sort of film.
