Based on the Sundance Film Festival synopsis, I expected to see an edge-of-the-seat thriller, but instead found myself watching a two hour rant thinly disguised as a screenplay. In fact, writer/director Matthew Chapman simply could have put the lead character Gavin (Charlie Hunnam) behind a podium and spared us the artifice of the silly plot. I get it that Chapman has issues with fundamentalist Christianity, but Saturday Night Live could have handled it with more subtlety. The dialogue is stilted and contrived, the plot formulaic, and the actors\' (Hunnam, Patrick Wilson, Liv Tyler) performances are wooden. The characters are shallow stereotypes, and the conventions are cliche (.i.e. shaggy, cool atheist vs. clean-cut, twisted Christian.) Chapman as writer/director is a blunt instrument. Not even the gifted Terrence Howard as Detective Hollis could save the soul of this preachy film. Pass on this one.
