Overlapping Televangelist Voices: Thou shalt not kill. / There are people among us who have killed. / Foolishness is nothing, we're all just believing in God. / On the mountain the Lord will provide, says scripture. This is not some platitude. It is God's literal testimony. / Chase away all pessimists, over the hill, far away. / Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called the children of God. / There are those who will point to what they call inconsistencies in the Word of God.

A complicated yet good psychological drama
10 April 2008 | by ryan-1237See all my reviews

This is one of those rare "B" movies which has a complicated yet solid storyline accompanied by excellent acting. The filming looks like something you would see on daytime TV yet the storyline and acting is something you would expect from a well-known director and a much better funded production.

Forfeit is not an action film nor a thriller it is a complicated psychological thriller about a white, devout Christian hell-bent (seriously hell-bent as he acknowledges the evil of his actions) on carrying out his vengeance for an decade old crime against him.

The only complaint I have is that the storyline is based around the stereotype that devout Christian men are violent, irrational and delusional. While atheist/agnostics and non-practicing, pseudo Christians are the victims of their misguided passion. However that being said the film does not portray all Christian men as violent and delusional just the only one in the film.
