FBI agent Wesley Doyle is startled by the spontaneous declaration of youngster Fenton Meiks about how his father's delusions to have a divine mission as avenging angel required him and his brother Adam to become his 'demon-slaying' murder accomplices. But when Doyle accepts to be shown concealed victim graves, the plot twists in the present just as gruesomely. Written by
Bill Paxton's directorial debut. Allegedly, the title Frailty (which is never spoken in the film) refers not to the slow disintegration of the family, but to the very low budget for the movie. Lion's Gate considered changing the title to "God's Hands" (which is a phrase spoken in the film) but Paxton and writer Brent Hanley insisted against this. Ironically, the Brazilian title is 'A Mão do Diabo' (The Devil's Hand'). See more »

You can't make things like that up, son. Killing people is wrong, destroying demons is good. Don't worry, God will send you your own list when you're older.

People have different perceptions when they evaluate movies. I will only tell you what I felt when I saw this Close to Masterpiece Motion Picture.
I must Highlist here, that I never wanted this movie to End. Never... I wanted it to be as long as my favorite movies were, Like Lord of the Rings - extended versions, Into the Wild, Dances with Wolves etc. But, it was not the case here.... Though the movie was short (with perspective to my wants) It still delivers what was needed from it in short span of time. But again this is what I believe. Anyways, I'll plot the outline like this....
A widowed father of two interrupts his two sons' sleep with a shocking revelation, which is hard to believe and they are torn apart of whether believing it or not......... As the horrifying events of this tale unfold, we learn a lot about the father, about his two sons, and about their destinies. So goes the story forward...
I watched it twice and I must say it was something I would like to watch again and again.
I really appreciate all the efforts of the Director put forward to make this Precious Art which doesn't come often. Really, it is hard to find such movies...
Anyways, If You haven't seen this movie, I really recommend you to go and see it,
I give it 9/10
