Great idea, good script, hampered by low budget
27 January 2002 | by Col-3See all my reviews

This movie says a lot that really needed to be said. Alas, despite my enthusiasm for the message of the movie - which is very irreligious - I felt a little let down at the end. The script was actually very good, apart from a rather lacklustre ending. The acting, on the other hand, was often mediocre, despite some excellent cameos by Ian Abercrombie as Zeus and Andrew Scudiero and John Capodice as a couple of confused Jehovah's Witnesses. Mostly the film suffered from poor timing - much of it had a stilted feel to it - the blame for which must be laid at the director's feet. Nevertheless there was much to be admired in the movie; the editing was well done, Carlos Leon did a pretty good job in the lead and there were some pretty hilarious moments throughout. I don't think this is going to be a breakout success or a cult hit, but it's thought provoking and makes me look forward to the next film by John Medoza. Any atheists out there should make an effort to get a hold of Blasphemy.
