  • Morgan Freeman at his best-- this is my fav! Nice shock!

    WoW, I am just blown away by this movie, it was even better than I expected. Freeman's one of my fav actors, but I feel he does not get as many of the worthy scripts he deserves. I was so pleased with this movie, and adding Cole Hauser to the mix sure was pleasing to me also. Without dropping any spoiler; I just want to say that it was EXCELLENT to be shocked by an ending, loved it!!!
  • mediocre = boring

    The Ritual Killer was mediocre without any highs or lows, cliche ridden and transparently thin. I found myself multi-tasking by the middle of the flick and I didn't miss a thing ...

    For fans of Morgan Freeman and Yellowstone’s Cole Hauser, it’s worth the watch. A bit Seven, DaVinci Code (with regard to ritual practices), and western (cowboy justice) all rolled together. I would give it five stars had the plot and characters developed a bit more. The initial scenes of Freeman are important. I only wish it would have incorporated more of that. However, then it might have seemed too much like a Seven ripoff. Otherwise, it’s a worthwhile thriller that highlights differences in culture from a bit of a gruesome, morbid sociological and anthropological point of view.
