Movie: The Rite (2011)

You can only defeat it when you believe.

The Rite (2011) is a supernatural horror movie directed by Mikael Håfström.

Synopsis: A skeptical seminary student Michael Kovak (Colin O'Donoghue) reluctantly attends exorcism school at the Vatican. While in Rome, he meets an unorthodox priest, Father Lucas Travent (Anthony Hopkins) who introduces him to the darker side of his faith.

I watch this movie because of Anthony Hopkins. I still remember his chilling and excellent performance as Dr. Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs (1991) and Hannibal (2001); and as Sir John Talbot in The Wolfman (2010).

In The Rite, Anthony Hopkins is Father Lucas Trevant, a simple character and yet, it's also another strong and creepy character that Hopkins played extremely well since his iconic role as Hannibal Lecter in years. In fact, it's a fair statement if I say, The Rite is worth watching for Anthony Hopkins alone. It's amazing seeing this distinguished actor in his seventies giving a performance so real and believable.

The younger actors are clearly overshadowed, e.g. Colin O'Donoghue. As Michael Kovak, he's actually the main character in this movie but his performance is not half as impressive.

About the storyline, heavy references to Christianity, demonology, and exorcism are portrayed. If you don't like this genre of movie, you might not be exactly comfortable watching most of the scenes.

Having said that, I'd still recommend this movie to all horror movie fans.
