An average movie

I always wondered if this movie was any good and since I’m a big fan of Christopher Walken, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, the damned thing definitely had some potential and there was something quite fascinating about this religious mythology. Unfortunately, I’m afraid it turned out to be a disjointed mess.  Indeed, the worst scene was probably the one when Thomas meets Simon. Basically, just before standing on some random roof, Thomas goes home and suddenly sees Simon standing on a chair. But why was actually Simon waiting for him? That was never clear but, even worse, this scene didn’t have any proper conclusion at all. Instead, they suddenly jumped to something completely different involving  another enigmatic character walking down some street.  To be honest, the first 20 minutes were actually so hard to follow that I actually had to re-watch the 1st half a second time around to make sense of the damned thing. Furthermore, I wasn’t really convinced by Elias Koteas who felt like a cheap version of Robert De Niro. Fortunately, the rest of the cast was pretty cool, especially Christopher Walken who basically born to play such characters.  To conclude, even though I though it was rather poorly developed, the concept was actually pretty awesome and it is definitely worth a look, especially if you like the genre.
