Very poor policing by obsessed detective
21 April 2017 | by emuir-1See all my reviews

I watched it to the end, which is more than I can say for some films. My major gripe, other than that California does not look at all like Massachusetts, was the poor plotting and the one-note characters.

The priest himself could have asked for confession and advice from his superior about what to do.

The police work by the obsessed Catholic School hating detective was so abysmal that even a fresh out of law school public defender would have had the case thrown out of court. For example, Luke had been caught with a locker full of drugs and porn. Why did the priest who copped him not say so to the detective, and why did the detective not ask him where he had obtained it. Why did the priest not tell the detective right up front that Luke was being expelled for being caught with illegal drugs. This would have revealed that Luke would dress as a priest to get drugs without prescriptions from the pharmacy. Instead we got priests keeping their mouths shut and a detective determined to find a priest guilty and ignore all other evidence. Soap opera plotting. It would not have surprised me if Luke had turned out to be the secret son of the detective and the mother superior.

As a starter film this was OK, after all, everyone has to begin somewhere, but it could have done with a little tightening up.
