Watchable, but generic and predictable...
20 June 2021 | by paul_haakonsenSee all my reviews

I stumbled upon the 2020 movie "The Unhealer" in 2021, and I hadn't heard about it. But I saw that the movie had Lance Henriksen and Natasha Henstridge on the cast list, so of course I was interested in watching it. And so I sat down to watch "The Unhealer" from writers Kevin E. Moore and J. Shawn Harris.

While "The Unhealer" definitely was watchable and provided adequate entertainment, the movie was a bit too much on the generic and predictable side, which ultimately dragged the movie down a bit.

The storyline told in this 2020 movie was pretty straight forward, I will say that much. But it was just too generic for my liking. Perhaps I have been watching too many movies throughout the years, but there was nothing new to be had here really.

It was a bit disappointing that Lance Henriksen had such small part to play in the movie, but at least Natasha Henstridge played a bigger part, but their names being on the cover hardly did it any justice, because they were mere support characters.

"The Unhealer" is not a movie that makes use of grand special effects, but there were a fair amount of special effects throughout the course of the movie, and they were adequately made and served the movie well enough.

While "The Unhealer" is watchable, it was hardly an outstanding or memorable movie experience. And it is not a movie that I will be returning to watch a second time. My rating of director Martin Guigui's 2020 movie "The Unhealer" lands on a less than mediocre four out of ten stars.
