Renny Harlin is known for putting tidbits of Finnish culture in his movies. In the Convenant he has hung a famous Finnish painting on Sarah's wall. It is painted by Hugo Simberg and it's called "Haavoittunut enkeli" ("Wounded Angel"). It has an angel in it and there are two boys carrying her away. See more »
Chase tells Pogue and Caleb that he heard they were swimmers while the pair are playing foosball at Nicky's, but his mouth doesn't quite match up to the words, almost as if he's yelling it and then it was voiced over. See more »
I must admit this wasn't as bad as I expected. I've seen several Renny Harlin movies, none of which I've liked (in fact, I hated them). So, going into this one, I had little hope (if any). The story isn't the most originial thing I've ever heard of, but it's not a carbon copy of anything else. The story development is pretty straight-forward and predictable. The graphics are what you'd expect, as well. My main complaint with this film is what I call gratuitous dialogue: when people talk too much or think outloud to fill the audience in on what they're thinking. There's a lot of "ha ha I'm so evil" talk from the villain, as well. But, hey, if you can't have fun at the movies, why bother going? All in all, worth seeing at least once.
