  1. It's a heartfelt and powerful examination of faith that no serious student or enthusiast of theology or philosophy should miss.
  2. Gets off to a pretty intriguing start before degenerating into a series of routine action sequences.
  3. This cinematic stiff should have stayed buried.

    Antonio Banderas is unintentionally hilarious as Father Matt Gutierrez, a sort of Jesuit James Bond.

    This talky, self-important flick is a bore of biblical proportions.

    Has shown its true colors as less a serious religious-themed film than a moth-eaten tapestry of foreign intrigue and badly miscast international stars.
  7. 10
    Mutates halfway through into a ham-fisted action movie that squanders the good will, and insults the intelligence, of its audience.
