Occasionally a superb novel creates a huge public following which generates a surge of anticipation when news of it's being transferred onto the silver screen is announced. Such was the case when the novel GODSEND arose from its literary pages and leaped onto the film stage. Excitement increased when the movie trailer enticed potential patrons with scenes of satanic evil and heart-pounding dangers, acted out by stars such as Robert de Niro, Greg Kinnear, Rebecca Stamos, Jessie Duncan and Cameron Bright as Adam Duncan. One can only express disappointment then after watching the film and drawing away to examine its many flaws. The movie is nothing short of a random collection of unexciting scenes, unsympathetic characters, disappointing performances by the very people we'd hoped would save it. If one explores the novel, then sees the film, you'd conclude the director, never read it at all.
