Film Review

My main question: who is this movie aimed at? Any non-theist will find it laughable and stupid, but it's not exactly doing people of faith any favors either with its groundbreaking "God is evil" message. In it we find out that, due to the expansion of the human race, God no longer has the resources to keep humanity in line, so he spends his time pranking tiny hick towns out of boredom. For Haven, Louisiana, he has decided to bring back his original 10 plagues, only it turns out that what was once looked upon as phenomenal power is quite lame by contemporary standards. First he turns a two-mile stretch of river into blood, then drops about a dozen frogs into it. Having failed to terrorize the nonbelievers yet, he waits until they are about to eat dinner and then fills their barbecue grill with flies. OH SH*T, FLIES! DINNER WILL BE POSTPONED! The plagues continue on in this retarded fashion until Hilary Swank… okay, she really has nothing to do with it, the plagues just…

The Reaping is set in Louisiana where Katherine Winter (Hilary Swank) works as a lecturer in the State University & is also an expert in proving that miracles ll have scientific facts & reasonings behind them. Katherine is contacted by a man called Doug Blackwell (David Morrissey) from the small Louisiana town of Haven who ask's her to look at & try to explain a local river which has apparently turned red with blood following the death of a child, at first Katherine is reluctant but eventually agrees & is surprised to see the entire two mile stretch of river red with what after tests does turn out to be human blood. Add to the blood red river a rain shower of Frog's, swarm's of flies & maggot's, local animals dying for no apparent reason & a plague of boils which the God fearing residents of Haven believe is the modern equivalent of the Biblical plague that struck Egypt. Katherine then discovers the existence of a Satanist cult along w…

Where do I start. Do I try to justify having a crack in a difficult genre or just bag them for missing so badly?Do I give points for trying to treat the ludicrous premise seriously or slap them for thinking it could work?Nah I'm slapping them.The first third of The Reaping attempts to set a realistic tone. Kathryn (Hillary Swank) is a respected investigator called upon with disturbing frequency to debunk what at first appear to be religious miracles through scientific analysis. At one point I think she said 18 investigations for 18 non-miraculous explanations.18? That's a lot of Jesus-shaped Doritos or bleeding slices of toast!Kathryn's sidekick is Ben, a large black guy who lived through a miracle of his own – he was shot 6 times and survived – and didn't even make a rap album afterward!They are called upon to investigate a non-wind related happening in N'awlins where an entire tranche of river has gone red with blood, killing all the fish. The loca…
