    For all its embarrassment of riches, “Deliver” never manages to transcend its bloody, screechy, pulpy origins. That makes the film both a horror tale and a tragedy.

    It's all clichéd, of course, and has been since "The Exorcist" but it's still effective, perhaps more so with anyone who, like our hero cop, comes from the world of scented smoke and altar boys.

    Actually, Ramirez should probably have been cast in the lead, since things flatten out whenever he disappears.

    Deliver Us from Evil takes a very long time to deliver us from dullness.

    This is television-level moviemaking top to bottom, from its preposterous premise, scenery-chomping performances, idiotic sound cues and force-fed jump-scares. Deliver Us From Evil delivers formula, and in a formulaic fashion.

    I went to see this movie two days ago and i still think that it was money well spent.
    This movie beside providing jump scares, it has a good history.
    I have to admit that thriller and horror combination is one of the best types of combination that the current Hollywood movies should have.

I do like how they tried to combine the elements of a police film with a possession horror film. While it definitely worked in some ways, in others it felt all too familiar and cliche. Eric Bana performed his role well, as did Edgar Ramirez. The story was cool and had good elements to offer, however, the main problem is that it's one of those horror films that isn't particularly scary and it consists only of desperate jump scares. Overall, it's a cool to watch, yet forgettable possession film. Expand

    horror/claptrap you can think of. There's not an original bone in this
    film's body which is very disappointing considering director Scott
    Derrickson was responsible for the very haunting and intriguing THE
    EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE. That film too borrowed from other sources, but
    it's combination of THE EXORCIST with LAW & ORDER made for something
    quite unique.

    Not so here. Bad dialog and a really poor exorcism scene add to the
    banality. Not a good film at all but it will fill your horror fix.

It is not the fault of the actors, who were quite believable, but the script was awful and the director uninspired. This movie made me believe that exorcisms and serial killers both should be retired from the screen, but perhaps there was just nothing fresh here. Very disappointing. Expand
