11 January 2010 | by (Philippines) – See all my reviews

Even if I were to agree with the theology, this would still be a dreadful film. The acting sucks, the story is stupid, it only commands attention because of the horrific idea at its core.

That idea is the eternal torment of those who do not adhere the shibboleths of a specific religion. "Eternal torment" here is portrayed by literalistic imagery drawn from the Christian Bible, complete with fire, sulfur, worms, and of course endless pain.

Many evangelical Christians have suspended, not only disbelief, but also intelligence, in endorsing this terrible movie.

F__k this evil movie to hell!
