    Certainly a dark spirit is hovering over this inane production. Something has sucked the life out of it. show more

    It's no wonder that the film's strongest sequence, visually and dramatically, involves none of these characters. It's a flashback to the construction of St. Peter's that explains the origins of Eden's centuries-long reign on his dark throne. show more
