You can only defeat it when you believe.
Seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O'Donoghue) reluctantly attends exorcism school at the Vatican. While he’s in Rome, Michael meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins), who introduces him to the darker side of his faith, uncovering the devil’s reach even to one of the holiest places on Earth.
Why I watched this movie? I wanted to check out another movie that starred Sir Anthony Hopkins. This was the 40th Hopkins movie that I have watched.
What is this one about? Colin O'Donoghue plays an American seminary student who travels to Italy to take an exorcism course (for some reason that class was not offered at the college I went to). O'Donoghue is questioning his faith so his bosses send him to Hopkins. Hopkins is an exorcist and shows O'Donoghue that evil is out there.
My thoughts on this one? This one is based on actual events. Movie is more disturbing than scary. So if you are expecting an Exorcist type movie this is not one for you. Hopkins…
A more mature and less histrionic exorcism film from Mikael Hafstrom, it's a classy production, but it forgets to be, for large chunks, scary or even interesting. Hopkins is good, but the rest is fairly forgettable.
the BETTER exorcism movie
Anthony Hopkins goes around smacking up children, producing frogs from unorthodox places and even takes the opportunity to go full Welsh. Redonkulous.
Felt like I'd seen this a hundred times before.
Michael Kovak (Colin O'Donoghue) is a young man attending seminary school. After resigning as an attempt to receive a fully paid college education due to lack of faith, One of his teachers (Toby Jones) sends him to Rome to take a course on exorcisms. While there, he meets Father Lucas (Anthony Hopkins) and learns not only the art of exorcism but how to regain his faith.
The Rite, like most movies of this sub genre, is clearly inspired by the 1970's classic The Exorcist. What this film tries to do is make it more of a character journey that a standard exorcism film. Kovak's journey to regain his faith and find his true calling is the bulk of the film,…
my thoughts during this....
you know its always super Religious people that get possessed by demons ......
I never see an atheist getting possessed......
Definite Kick Ass flick...
Τολμώ να βάλω 2 αστεράκια πριν καν τελειώσει η ταινία απλά και μόνο γιατί με έχει πάρει ο ύπνος ήδη 2 φορές.
Unremarkable. Also I'm 90% sure I'd seen this before but forgot about it, because nothing about this stood out at all.
It was almost really good. Almost.
Nothing terribly original, but the thrills work well and the characters are engaging. A fun ride!
Surprisingly ambitious for a by-the-books exorcism movie.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
One of my favorite exorcism films that got lost in the mix of an over saturated market in the past six or so years. Anthony Hopkins phoning it in as a whethered exorcist is still better than all of his other half hearted performances in the past decade. Because he slaps a young child in the face.
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
