"'The Risen' is an excellent sophomore effort from Bethmann/Smyzr. This duo continues to bring new meaning to independent films with their unique dynamic and fresh approach to filmmaking. The storyline of 'The Risen' is a nice homage to the serial films of years past, and contains numerous allusions to other films. Some movies misuse these, but this film blends them in smoothly and they only contribute to the overall humor of the movie. The special effects are spectacular, as are the comic stills used throughout the film. This movie is a kind of departure from Bethmann and Smyzr's first film, 'Raising Hell', due to the comic nature of 'The Risen', but the quality is still the same, if not better. If you love sci-fi thrillers that create suspense as well as provide comic relief, 'The Risen' is a must for your DVD collection."
