"This movie is one of Dolph's best, for his acting and the general overall tone of the film, Dolph plays a knight templar, an ancient order of warrior monks, whose job it is to prevent a key falling into the hands of the devils minion, if this key falls into the hands of the minion, then satan will be unleashed and armageddon will be upon the world. The minion takes over bodies by staring into their eyes, so the potential enemy changes frequently. Anyway I recommend this film highly even if you are not a fan of lundgren, there is enough here to keep anyone entertained."
Save your money. If you really have to see it, rent it.

"First off, I am a big fan of Dolph Lundgren. I say that so you will know that I'm not just sitting here writting a review for a film staring someone that I do not like in the first place. The Minion, what can say about this movie. One word, terrible. From start to finish, it was just bad. Dolph's acting was wooden, the script was bad, the directing was bad and the supporting cast were bad, particularly the guy who played the lead investigating officer, you guessed it! The movie looked cheap and its main action set piece was lifted straight from The Terminator police station massacre. Hard to believe from the fight scenes in this movie that Dolph Lundgren was once the European Heavyweight Full-Contact Karate Champion and Australian heavyweight division title champion in the 80's. I know he is supposed to be playing a priest but I'm sure even a priest could fight better than Dolph does in this. Having a Demon pass from person to person is a good plot device that we have seen before and could of been good had it been done well. Unfortunatly the makers of the movie even managed to make these scenes when they happened, look stupid. Two people gave this 5 star reviews on Amazon. The only reason I can think of for doing this is that they are now trying to sell their copies of The Minion used, and are hoping for a better price by giving a top mark review for this trash. Dolph Lundgren is an intelligent person and should know better than to be involved in movies like this. Very dissapointing. Avoid, avoid, avoid.........."

"This movie is really really a stinker. All the action is poorly done, and comes off even cheasier then it should. Most of the acting is horrible, and the story is bland. Nothing in this movie does what it should (hello it can't even keep its religions straight). I would say that it was because of a low budget, but the movie had $12,000,000. They could at least have made some of the fights look good, but sadly no. If you are in need of a good horror movie rent "Kolobos" or "Bloody Murder" (the latter is super cheesy and low budget but is way better then this movie). Try something else because this is a pretty lame movie. Although it is still better then "End Of Days"."
One of the best
