Goofs

When Katherine is giving Ben her list of causes for the 10 plagues, she states that locusts would have been blown into Cairo. The plagues took place around 1400BC, but Cairo didn't exist until 969AD, and didn't become the capital until 1168-1169AD. She should have used Thebes as the reference city since it did exist then, and was Egypt's capital. See more »

Better than people are saying
8 April 2007 | by (denton, texas) – See all my reviews

Just got back from seeing The Reaping and I must say it was better than I expected. After reading the critics reviews and reading a majority of the user comments I thought this movie was going to be a real dog. One of the complaints was about the poor special effects. I've never been too impressed with CGI in the first place, but this was as good as any I've seen lately. It has never looked real to me in any movie. As far as the storyline not being original, what film has been original in the last few years. There has been so many movies made in the last 80 years or so that it's gotta be difficult to come up with a never used theme at this point. I also believe when you have an actor the caliber of Hilary Swank in a movie they are held to a higher standard and are thusly criticized more harshly than others if their movies aren't stellar. Give this one a try and judge for yourself.
