An average movie

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this movie but since I have a weak spot for Charlize Theron, I was quite eager to check it out. Well, to be honest, it wasn't really good, I'm afraid. Basically, the main issue was that the story was such a convoluted mess. Indeed, you had some devil worshipping, a so-called 'Angel of Death', some alleged child molestation, a teen pregnancy and even a Kill club. It's too bad because the concept of examining the life of a woman 30 years after her whole family was killed when she was just a child was such a great concept and it could have been amazing. Unfortunately, to turn this tale into a thriller was a poor choice and the damned thing never really worked. I mean, we are supposed to believe that, of all people, this woman would suddenly become some kind of private detective, even solving this case, when she had no interest in this case whatsoever and when the only the reason she actually got involved was because she was given some money from a bunch of some serious weirdos. Furthermore, I find it had hard to believe that, after all these years, she didn't ever wonder if her older brother might have been actually innocent since she didn't see at all what happened and since she seemed to have had a pretty good relationship with him before this terrible tragedy happened. Eventually, I still think that Charlize Theron and Christina Hendricks gave some solid performances but the whole thing felt like a missed opportunity as it could and should have been so much better.
