"Rag and Bone" was shown recently on cable. The promise of having been inspired by something written by Ann Rice, we decided to take a look. This film has a TV pilot written all over it. Robert Lieberman, has worked basically for television. The film doesn't show anything new, or break any new ground on the genre.
The main annoying point is the thundering and lightning effect we see and feel, whenever anything supernatural is about to occur in the action. Instead of enhancing the point of view, it appears to work against what we are watching.
The idea of a priest joining the New Orleans Police Department, is preposterous, at best, but we go along with the story. The conflict of interests, alone, is something that defies all logic, but one gives it the benefit of the doubt.
The acting is adequate, although, as Tony Moran, the cop, Dean Cain, seems out of his depth. Robert Patrick, on the other hand gives a more assured performance as Sgt. Ryan.
Based on what was presented, it was clear why this would be series didn't make it.
