It's hard to deny that The Rite is guilty of sins against its audience. show more
Mr. Hopkins gives the production what he was hired for. Whenever you wonder how much longer he can trade on Hannibal Lecter's special zest, the same answer comes up-a lot. show more
As Hopkins himself goes wild-eyed and FX-ed with popping veins, The Rite gives up on asking us to take it seriously. show more
Two stars only because of Anthony Hopkins. It really deserves no stars at all for being a blatant piece of Catholic propaganda. The rubbish at the end of the movie when they do their little follow-up on the where-a-bouts and goings-on in the lives of the main characters is pathetic; the attempt to give the movie some sort of credibility. If you\'re looking for a bit of evil to brighten up your day, try Silence of the Lambs or listen to Dio - Holy Diver: both of those options are much more fulfilling. Shemhamphorasch
Decent flick. It will get lost in the sand of times, but definitely worth renting.
Utterly boring and lacking of anything slightly exciting. Great performance by Sir Anthony Hopkins as always but not even he could save this , what truly is an interesting and exciting script, from the lazy and talentless directing of this film. Don\'t bother with this one.
