Indeed, Bill Paxton has built up an interesting career as an actor and this was his directing debut but I didn't expect him to produce something so striking. Indeed, it is honestly one of the most realistic and spellbinding movie dealing with a serial killer I have ever seen. There were some supernatural elements bu... read more

Description: A tale which follows an FBI investigation in present day Texas. Fenton Meiks, a young man, approaches the lead FBI investigator, claiming he knows the identity of a serial killer who calls himself "God's Hands." The FBI agent is curious, but unimpressed until Fenton reveals that the killer is his younger brother Adam. Fenton recounts in a series of flashbacks, how he and his brother grew up in a very loving family, raised by their widowed father.

*The cast has some really good choices and some who have become more relevant today.

*This was the first film Bill Paxton directed the next one was The Greatest Game Ever Played which was also really good.

*This is the first film written by Brent Hanley and the only one I ever heard of.

*Thanks to Netflix for pulling out stuff you forget about.

*So let's see if this is yet another good performance from the legend Bill Paxton.

"A widowed father swears that he's been touched by the hand of God and enlists his two boys in helping him to wipe out "demons" who walk in human form. But is he really a divine slayer of evil or just a serial killer with a biblical excuse? Frailty is a movie that proves that the only thing better than a high quality serial killer flick is a high quality serial killer flick with a twist ending. "
