Rotten: all but done in by a staggering one-two punch of awfulness

- Christopher Null,, Thursday, June 24, 2010

Rotten: It's a nice looking wintry crime drama involving a gay priest accused of murder that turns icy as the story goes into a skid and never recovers.

This movie started out slowly, but got better as it went along. Christian Slater plays a priest who starts playing detective when a fellow priest is accused of murder. His former girlfriend helps him and they almost get killed figuring out who the murderer is.

Good movie. I didn't expect much of it so I wasn't disappointed. It could of been better though. It's a short movie and it's worth watching when you have nothing to do.

I sat down to watch this movie because I thought it was The Good Shepherd movie with Matt Damon but I was wrong. But I decided to watch the movie anyway. This movie is about a priest (Slater) who believes that his fellow priest is innocent of the murder he's accused for. He starts cooperating eith a journalist in order to clear the priest's name. I wasn't all that amazed by this movie and it was a bit boring at times. Christian Slater's effort was the best thing about this movie.
