"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

While wandering through Wal-Mart, I came across their $1 DVD shelves and saw this bad boy. There's a good reason that this film is only a dollar and it's because most people with a working brain wouldn't pay anymore for it. It's a terrible, wannabe blaxploitation film, but it's still pretty fun to watch, and laugh at.
To be totally honest, I've seen better actors on Barney and Friends. I really liked the idea of a former hit-man turned priest turned back to hit-man but it seems the producers didn't execute it very well. It was also way too long. It'd definitely a good movie for a laugh and probably would have been better if I had seen it with some friends.
If you're bored and low on cash, go to Wal-Mart, pick this up and enjoy. Don't expect much of anything but still be prepared to be entertained.
