The Rite Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review



Synopsis: Inspired by true events, this supernatural thriller follows a seminary student (Colin O’Donoghue) sent to study exorcism at the Vatican in spite of his own doubts about the controversial practice and even his own faith. Only when sent to apprentice with legendary Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who has performed thousand of exorcisms, does his armor of skepticism begin to fall. Drawn into a troubling case that seems to transcend even Father Lucas’s skill, the young seminarian glimpses a phenomenon science can’t explain or control – and an evil so violent and terrifying that it forces him to question everything he believes.

Review: I want to start out by saying that, although he has over-saturated himself a bit, Sir Anthony Hopkins is a phenominal actor.  He is the only thing that made the Rite worth watching for me.  Don't get me wrong, its not a badly made movie, but its about exorcism.  I don't believe in demons or demonic posession, so its a bit of a hard sell for me.  If you're religious and you're into this sort of thing, I'm sure its great.  The cool twist of this film is that the priest gets the tables turned on him and Hopkins is creepy to be sure.

The Rite is a horror-thriller that definately delivers chills.  If you're into these exorcism movies, this one is great quality and definately worth a watch.
