Two words to describe this film: Pure Fun!, 4 February 2010
Author: brandon_lee420 from 21 Stalker St, Pedo Way

What a fantastic movie! Bill Paxton and Mathew McConaughey are absolutely terrific in this film! A must-see!. Bill Paxton, one of the greatest actors and director of all time (just for Frailty), has made a movie which is still terrifying people, especially me to this day. He should have won an Oscar for his wonderful acting and directing. This is his best role in a film ever! Matthew McConaughey has a liking to work in crappie movies, see Fools Gold and Sahara, but in Frailty he works to the best of his abilities resulting in perfection. Matt O'Leary and Jeremy Sumpter did really well for teenage actors and their performances were engaging and promising. The film doesn't have any boring bits that bore you to death or are slow but instead they are fast-paced and well-packed. The twist at the end will leave some viewers shocked while others will have a hint of the end. Sadly, I was one of those people and that is why it lost a star from me. There are somethings which make the film more mysterious and engaging, like the beheading scenes but they don't actually show it. That is how smart Bill Paxton is. The end is confusing and you will be thinking if it is real or not. This is one of the best movies I have ever seen in my entire life and it will remain in that list forever.

Fenton Meeks (Matthew McConaughey), comes forth to tell the FBI that his brother Adam may be the serial killer who calls himself God's Hands, who the FBI has been searching for. The film uses flashbacks to show Meeks' childhood with a father (Bill Paxton) who believed he was on a mission from God to destroy demons that inhabit human bodies. Fenton saw his dad as evil, while Adam saw him as a hero.

Nearly everyone will love or like this film but the 2 percent retards don't know a thing about fun or movies and they probably like criticizing everything they see or will ever see. The narration by Fenton Meiks (Matthew McConaughey) added more taste to the film and I always love films with narration, simply because the voice of the narrator and his story telling is so, so.......compelling. Everyone should at least watch it once and should definitely prepare for a roller-coaster ride about religion, and right an wrong. 9/10 - Incredible!
