A pretty dull movie

The Rite (2011) is a scary movie that centers around a seminary student and his being sent to Rome to take an exorcism course. Of course like with any horror film, when the student gets there, strange and unexplainable things begin to happen. The seminary student is played by Colin O'Donoghue, whom some might know as hook from Once upon a time. I like him a lot as an actor and I thought he was a good pick for his character, he did a good job in this movie. He was actually my favorite thing about the film. Also, we have Anthony Hopkins. Hopkins plays Father Lucas, a priest that is sort of mentoring Colin O'Donoghue's character. He teaches him about exorcisms, how to perform them and what all they are about. Hopkins is a magnificent actor, very skilled in his craft. His performance wasn't bad here, but I do feel that his character was underused and I think if the screenplay would have allowed him more depth, then I would feel more connected to his character. That's where the real issue lies with this film. The screenplay. It is dull and just doesn't give the characters enough depth. Also, the events that go on in the movie just aren't interesting enough, I found myself not really caring a whole lot about what was happening. The only time I actually got interested was when Colin O'Donoghue's character was in potential danger towards the end. I wasn't a fan of the pacing either, things just kind of happened and it felt a little disjointed to me. Colin O'Donoghue was the only good thing about this movie. I don't recommend wasting your time on this one. 4/10.

Great movie that causes scares

This is an excellent terror movie. It is not too deep but deep enough to provoke scares, thoughts and entertaining reactions. Anthony Hopkins stars as an aloof and eccentric exorcist, in Catholic Rome. He is sent a confused student for shadowing, who ends up having to help the exorcist who becomes possessed. It is all better than it sounds, with some great acting, scenery, scares, tension and possessions. This film will appeal more to, and impress, viewers open to this kind of religious thriller but here lies a decent drama with several scary and tense moments.

A more believable horror = SCARY!

This film represents what I have read about exorcisms, and although I am a thorough atheist, it definitely is terrifying if you can empathise with the characters in the books and then too in this film.

The acting from Hopkins is going to be solid; that is what made me watch the film in the first place. However, the cinematography could have done with some tweaking.

Firstly, there were things that could be understood by extrapolating from clues, that if left to the viewer would have enabled an even more empathetic experience, therefore all the more terrifying. Instead, certain instances where it was very easy to understand what was going on, there was overemphasis from the film, and certain things that were important to the plot were underdeveloped and in a few instances were skipped over.

Aside from that, I think it was a solid movie.

I'd say to give it a whirl if you are open to this type of supernatural horror.
