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

an interesting premise,but not that good a film.
7 April 2001 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Patrick Dempsey has proven himself to be a good actor in adult roles. I only hope his he gets better vehicles than this one. He portrays a police detective on the hunt for a serial killer. Oh when have we seen this before- a few too many times for me. Apparently the video box gives away the ending, BUT I knew who the killer was the first time he appeared. Micheal Ironside play a super rich, newspaper publisher. Need I say more.

I can only recommend this film as part of a double feature. I can only give this a **1/2 rating

as always

Jay Harris
