I am a Summer Glau Fan
30 April 2010 | by WakenPayneSee all my reviews

The Initiation of Sarah is her worst movie but I give it 9/10 it's not like Mammoth or Serenity which are excellent it's all about witches it's not my sort of thing but being as that my favourite actress is in it I decided to give it a try I focus on 3 things: 1. Character Development 2. Story 3. Acting The rating of mine falls short due to the awful music score. people say it's slow I don't think so I can take slow films. watch it and you'll be impressed. The character Finn in this serves the purpose of a comedy relief. Jennifer Tily makes up for her role as Bonnie in Family Guy. Summer Glau has been and always will be my favourite actress I base my acting on emoting as most of these users do I will always like her movies.

Rating: 9/10
