  • Summary: Don’t look for answers or any deeper meaning if you decide to give The Rite a look. You won’t find them. The film masquerades as a deep-thought or philosophical piece. I’m sure those involved would like to think that’s what it is.

The Rite Review

  • Excerpt: The Rite is a film of dissenting voices, much like every other film about exorcism. There’s doubt, a slow climb into demonic realities, and then the necessary conclusion where there can be no question as to its existence and we’re told it’s all true. Uh huh.

  • Summary: Even when Sir Anthony Hopkins is phoning in his role, he's still able to create an interesting character. Too bad everyone else in this movie is as dull and lifeless as the film's tepid script that wants so badly to be scary.

  • Excerpt: You know what isn’t terrifying? Mules. Also not terrifying: mules with red eyes and baleful expressions. Try as The Rite might, it cannot make its demonic mule—a centerpiece of a would-be nightmarish hallucination sequence—frightening. Even an Italian boy whimpering in terror about “il mulo!

  • Excerpt: This is the most recent addition to a select collection of films that deal with the subject of exorcism. Despite eventually falling short of its early potential, squandering both pace and tension, the movie is admittedly somewhat unsettling at times, and leaves you in a rather philosophical frame of...

  • Conclusion: Tuorein yrittäjä näillä apajilla on Mikael Håfströmin The Rite. Alkutekstit kertovat tarinan olevan "tosielämän tapahtumien inspiroima," kuten esikuvansa aikanaan. Michael Kovak (Colin O´Donoghue) ...

  • Conclusion: I denne grøsserthrilleren som angivelig er basert på sanne hendelser, (meget løst, om jeg skal gjøre en rask egenvurdering), spiller Anthony Hopkins en livstrøtt prest med spesialfelt eksorsisme.
