  • One of the worst movies I have seen

    By cupcakevancover
    Clearly some money was spent on this movie, and how did they convince Morgan Freeman to participate? The direction is weak, the story telling is heavy and slow and then the ending was just ridiculous
  • Morgan Freeman at his best-- this is my fav! Nice shock!

    By BamaGirlGing
    WoW, I am just blown away by this movie, it was even better than I expected. Freeman's one of my fav actors, but I feel he does not get as many of the worthy scripts he deserves. I was so pleased with this movie, and adding Cole Hauser to the mix sure was pleasing to me also. Without dropping any spoiler; I just want to say that it was EXCELLENT to be shocked by an ending, loved it!!!
  • mediocre = boring

    The Ritual Killer was mediocre without any highs or lows, cliche ridden and transparently thin. I found myself multi-tasking by the middle of the flick and I didn't miss a thing ...

    For fans of Morgan Freeman and Yellowstone’s Cole Hauser, it’s worth the watch. A bit Seven, DaVinci Code (with regard to ritual practices), and western (cowboy justice) all rolled together. I would give it five stars had the plot and characters developed a bit more. The initial scenes of Freeman are important. I only wish it would have incorporated more of that. However, then it might have seemed too much like a Seven ripoff. Otherwise, it’s a worthwhile thriller that highlights differences in culture from a bit of a gruesome, morbid sociological and anthropological point of view.
