Storyline

Vancouver Police Detective Henry Smith is one of those investigating the murder of Roman Catholic Father Martin, who was crucified in his own church. Soon, others are also murdered, their dead bodies either hung in crucifixion or laid in such a manner. The detectives realize that they are dealing with a serial killer with a very personal and religious agenda. In the middle of the investigation is powerful publisher Alexander Hunt, a major benefactor to the church who the detectives believe is either the killer or the next victim. Despite being an atheist, Henry believes solving this case will offer some redemption in his own life, one that includes guilt over a recent on the job death of a colleague, dealing with a recovering drug addicted brother, and waiting for the potentially terminal diagnosis of an adolescent daughter. The case takes a turn for Henry when a personal connection to him is identified. Written by Huggo

slow.....but worth the wait if you like good plots
25 June 2000 | by See all my reviews

Andrew McCarthy definitely redeems himself as he does his best save this mediocre film. However, it starts off really slow and stays that way for about the first 45 minutes at which point it gets better.

Unlike other movies where elements such as action drama or comedy are there and plot isn't, "A Twist of Faith" is completely different it only has two worth noting, which are plot and mystery. I'm really sorry it lacked the others needed because it would have made for a much better movie.

However good this movie intends to be, it is lacking in areas that would make it worthwhile. If you enjoy good films with good plots then this is the movie for you, otherwise don't bother renting it.

The writer did an excellent job at making everything that was said come together without giving anything away. This plot was unlike one that I have ever seen
