Storyline

When the police raid the compound of a religious cult, they discover that almost all of the members have committed suicide. The only survivor, laying on an altar in the middle of the room, is a very pregnant woman who goes into labor as the raid begins. The woman dies in the hospital, but her child survives. 20 years later, strange things are starting to happen around the child, now a grown woman. A group of religious warriors from a mix of faiths join together to try and protect her from whatever supernatural horrors are seeking her out. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Special Effects Does Not a Movie Make
6 September 2003 | by NIXFLIX-DOT-COMSee all my reviews

SOUL GUARDIANS has enough special effects (and they're all done very well) to choke a horse. Unfortunately, as the summary states, special effects does not a movie make. SOUL GUARDIANS has some good points, but it's mostly rather shallow, and the movie lacks narrative focus. A lot of elements go unexplained, such as the boy's background.

This is not a bad film by any stretch, but like a lot of American movies that relies heavily on special effects, it's pretty to look at, but the story is average, at best.

5 out of 10
