Storyline

"Forgive Me Father" tells the story of Virgil Garrett, an intensely frightening, yet strangely sympathetic and sublime character. Garrett was once a ruthless and feared hit man for organized crime boss, Frank Ransom (played by Charles Napier), until he faked his own death, to get out of the "business". Unbeknownst to almost everyone, Virgil Garrett has spent the past twelve years living and working in Canada as a Roman Catholic priest. Now, a mysterious message brings Garrett back from the "dead", like a dragon woken from a long sleep. He learns that his brother Clarence (played by Alexander Hill), has been senselessly murdered, gunned down by Frank Ransom's cocksure son, Tony (played by Chris Elbert), and four of his criminal cohorts. Garrett now makes a transformation and returns to his old ways, but with a different purpose. He is now the personification of retribution with a Bible in his hand and a divine wrath in his heart. Caught up in Garrett's reprisal are three figures from ... Written by The Myriad Entertainment Group, LLC

A real sleeper that shouldn't be missed
1 July 2002 | by (oregon) – See all my reviews

The hardest thing to do it seems for most indie filmmakers is to make a movie that has the look and storyline of the studio films. Ivan Rogers did it! Playing a former hitman who seeks to avenge the murder of his younger brother, this autuer managed to pull off a film that looks great, sounds great and keeps you wondering what's going to happen next. As Father Virgil Mr. Rogers made feel the quiet rage underneath his collar. While I would have liked to know more about Virgil before he became a priest, the story moves right to the suspense and gritty feel of film noir. Great performances by the actor who plays the gangster son of Charles Napier, and a fantastic performance by Napier himself. Even the bungling hoods make you feel that this film is real! Don't miss a chance to see this hidden gem of a picture. I definetly would like to see more pics from this man.
