great cast, great story telling, poor twist

The good: Surprisingly good storytelling. At first I thought this would be yet another by-product of 90´s thriller epidemic but it is engaging against all odds, a page-turner indeed. It takes its time and, slowly but firmly, events unfold without noticing the time. It´s low-key and creepier than I expected and the father-son conflict is brilliant. Very good casting. Bill Paxton (the dad) is very convincing. The boy is excellent too, even the FBI agent was a great choice. The bad: The twist and ending turns what could have been a terrific creepy crime drama into a generic tv movie. Matthew McCounaughey is one of the few actors who can pull off an interesting voice over, but it still is a cheap voice over. Everything about "touching demons" just stinks. The ugly: No matter how well done the first hour is, it probably deserves being overlooked.

A good thriller with an incredibly mixed message

The movie FRAILTY concerns a father has a vision one night, sent to him by an angel, that he and his young sons have been chosen to kill demons who are hiding as humans.

The movie opens with one of the sons, who states his name is Fenton, telling the F.B.I. agent who is handling the "God's Hands Killer" case that he knows who the murderer is. He is not believed initially, but by the end of the movie is able to prove to the agent that he does indeed know who is responsible.

The film is generally done in a flashback style with most of the movie concerning Fenton's version of the family's history, how the killings began and continued and what happened when the father realized that Fenton wasn't buying into what his father and brother Adam were saying and doing. He is forced to minimally participate, but refuses to be involved in the actual killings and is subsequently punished by his father. Only when Fenton states he has received a vision as well is he considered to be safe by his father. He has come forward now because he doesn't want to carry around what he knows anymore.

Other people have written about the last 1/4 of the film, so I won't spoil it here. Suffice it to say that the plot takes a lot of twists and turns towards the end and rather than taking place in flashback, is done in present day.

Overall, I thought the movie was really well done with convincing performances by most of the cast. I do have to say I'm not a fan of Powers Boothe so it would be tough for me to write a fair review of how he did in the film - that being said, I liked the way he played his character the least.

This film is not a horror movie in the true sense of the word. It is more of a crime thriller/drama as indicated in IMDb. It is suspenseful, however, and really works well in that regard.

There are things that are very easy to miss at first watching. Keep your eyes and ears peeled. I don't want to mention them specifically, but in watching parts of the film a second time things become less muddy leading up to the movie's finish.

The only thing I didn't like about FRAILTY was the very end - I had a lot of difficulty with what I felt the message of the movie was and what it appears to support. I won't say anything further than that other than the fact that I found it very disturbing, maybe as it was meant to be.

Bottom line is that it is a good crime thriller and would be a good choice for fans of crime and suspense, however, be aware that the ending might be a little hard to swallow for some.

Slow to start but an enjoyable experience

Wasn't sure If I was going to enjoy the movie based on the slowness of how the story progressed but I'm very glad I stuck through it. The ending of the movie was my favorite part. Have to love when a twisty ending sneaks up on you. Anyway, I'd recommend it. If for nothing else then to see how serious and foreboding Matthew McConaughey looks when he's about to swing an axe.
