Movie Reviews

Decent Movie
Once Upon A Time | Southern Pines, NC | 08/01/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Resurrection" is a movie about two detectives on the trail of a fanatical serial killer. It was recommended to me by a friend of mine who said it was similar to "Seven"...with just a bit more gore.

I thought the plot of the movie was good - or should I say, I found the serial killer's motive and the way he went about choosing his victims to be morbidly fascinating. I was a bit surprised to find out who the killer was, though. Maybe I hadn't been paying close enough attention to what was going on. Or maybe it was because I had just spent the last two days watching episodes of "CSI" and then decided to take a break by watching this movie. Big mistake! My husband and I spent the majority of the film trying to figure out how these pitiful cops/detectives managed to make it out of the police academy. Okay, maybe it wasn't that bad - but there was a time or two we found ourselves yelling "Call in Grissom!" *laugh

"Resurrection" is a movie worth watching. I hate to compare it to "Seven" because I do not believe the movie is a rip-off or copycat of the blockbuster film. However, I will say that if you loved "Seven" - you'll like...I stress LIKE..."Resurrection"."
So twisted. So demented. Get it!

""Resurrection" was a surprise film that was on cable. After watching it, I had to own it. The plot is great, the characters are superb. The maniac is so twisted with his religious beliefs.
I don't want to ruin the main concept but this film is full of gore and grissly, graphic scenes. Not for the squirmish. The graphic scenes are so realistic and what the maniac ends up doing is shocking! Lambert plays detective Prudhomme who is not partically accepted by his fellow officers, except his partner, Andrew. Several disturbing murders occur and slowly Prudhomme pieces the puzzle together and the end result is so disturbing.
If you liked "Seven" with Freeman and Pitt, you'll like this film just as much. Maybe more."
This Movie Was a Pleasant Surprise

"I hadn't heard of Resurrection until I stumbled across it at the local video store, stuck in between two other horror flicks. I wouldn't call this a horror film, though it does get a bit creepy and it is very graphic.
As this is a murder-mystery style thriller I don't want to get into the plot at all, because that's one spot where I feel this movie truly shines. The acting is great though, and the idea behind the movie, although rather disturbing, kept me glued to the screen.
The violent scenes are generally filmed in dark areas which makes the make-up effects look much more realistic. Some of the more extreme scenes will likely have you squirming in your seat.
The only thing I thought this film could have done better was hide who the killer was a bit more. I had it guessed correctly far before I was supposed to find out. But even with this one minor flaw, nothing should take away from your enjoyment of this picture. Edge of your seat entertainment."
GREAT thriller - a must see!

"This movie's plot was well thought out, suspenseful, and thrilling. This movie rates up there with Silence of the Lambs and Seven. Christopher Lambert is wonderful, much improved since the Highlander days."
