Trivia

They both enjoyed the film and even complimented Smith on how realistic certain aspects of religious fanaticism are depicted. See more »

Goofs

(at around 1h 13 mins) At the end of Cooper's paraphrase of the opening of the seven seals, he throws his arms above his head. He then slowly lowers them- twice. First in an over-the-shoulder shot of actor John Goodman, and again in the next shot, a frontal shot of the good preacher. See more »

Kevin Smith forgot how to write
24 November 2013 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

The joy of watching a Kevin Smith film is always the great dialogue. This was what really made Clerks stand out, no budget, no famous stars, nothing - just genuinely well written dialogue, which really made you laugh.

So what was Kevin Smith thinking when he wrote and directed this?

He just totally ignored dialogue and instead made a pointless action film which tries to piggy-back on the general consensus of hatred which everyone (rightly) has for the Westboro Baptist church to make itself popular.

The last half hour is pretty all gunfire, and the film features non of the interesting dialogue and conversations which make Kevin Smith films normally so entertaining.
