Visuals and attitude -- not for kids.

what parents need to know

Parents need to know that this movie has extensive, intense, and graphic peril and violence, disturbing images, and suicides. Characters are injured and killed. There is some strong language, though less than in many R-rated movies. Characters drink, and a character is a chain smoker and is dying of lung cancer. Some viewers may be concerned about the portrayal of theological concepts, clergy members, angels, and demons.

what families can talk about

  • Families can talk about their own notions of heaven and hell and free will. What matters most to John? To Angela? To Midnite?

Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: The prime conceit of the movie is its gallows humor that seeps out like clotting blood from a decomposing corpse.

- Cole Smithey, ColeSmithey.com, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Fresh: It's just sad that a movie ostensibly based on a frequently intelligent comic book should end up a no-brainer.

- Daniel Etherington, Film4, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: Borderline incoherent, theologically unsatisfying, and short to the point of dwarfism on suspense.

- David Edelstein, Slate, Thursday, June 24, 2010

What do you figure the chances are for my last two movies to both feature automatic crucifix firearms? Well, I watched this piece of Hollywood blasphemy just before dropping Jodorowsky's Holy Mountain. Hmm..., maybe there is a God.
