New Times (L.A.)
It's a heartfelt and powerful examination of faith that no serious student or enthusiast of theology or philosophy should miss.
40
Gets off to a pretty intriguing start before degenerating into a series of routine action sequences.

Entertainment Weekly
This cinematic stiff should have stayed buried.

Indiana Jones has never been so missed, but instead this shaggy God story hones in on the faith dilemmas of Banderas and a sputtering Derek Jacobi, so Sunday-hammy you want to rivet him with cloves.
25
New York Daily News
Just about every race and creed come off badly in this small-scale thriller.

New York Post
Antonio Banderas is unintentionally hilarious as Father Matt Gutierrez, a sort of Jesuit James Bond.
20
If the film were a fight, they'd have stopped it.
20
Variety
Has shown its true colors as less a serious religious-themed film than a moth-eaten tapestry of foreign intrigue and badly miscast international stars.
20
Mr. Showbiz
This talky, self-important flick is a bore of biblical proportions.
10
Mutates halfway through into a ham-fisted action movie that squanders the good will, and insults the intelligence, of its audience.
