Goofs

When Sean Fallon returns from the hospital to his apartment and checks his messages, there is one message from "Mary" stating that she cleaned his apartment. This voice is not the same actress who was Mary earlier, which was Misty Mundae (Erin Brown). The voice in this message has a very strong accent and is not Misty's American voice. See more »

A tolerable but essentially pretty weak take on a cool idea
21 January 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Dying God could have been a real ripsnorter of a film. It tells of a corrupt and sleazy cop investigating a series of fatal rapes where the killer may not be human, but manages to really fumble the premise. The first problem which is apparent is the low production values. The film looks scuzzy, and not in a cool, oldie grindhouse way, but simply a this is really cheap way. This would be forgivable were the film stylish or made with pace and verve but this is not the case. It takes some time to get acclimatised to the look of the film, but even having done so, the pacing drags, the writing is fairly weak and the film suffers from a sort of identity crisis for too much of its running time. It seems to want to be like Bad Lieutenant with its foul mouthed, scummy cop protagonist, but he isn't loathsome enough, or as convincingly portrayed, and the writers assembled to put this together shouldn't even be mentioned in the same sentence as Bad Lieutenant scribe Nicholas St. John. Now James Horan makes a creditable effort as the lead and carries the film as best he can but he doesn't have enough energy or dirty appeal. It is nice too see Lance Henriksen though as a wheelchair bound pimp. He brings a certain gravitas and dignity to his role and his scenes with Horan do work quite nicely. There is some weak nudity and the impressively fine Erin Brown plays a side character, but the film sorely lacks the sleaze that might have made it come alive. Also, though there are some fun splashes of gore, especially in the dopey but entertaining final showdown, there is not nearly enough. Altogether, though this is far from the worst film out there, its difficult to recommend. Its an OK effort I guess, given the resources, but still skippable.
