An idiotic thriller that becomes increasingly preposterous as it goes.
Audience Reviews for Last Rites
Berenger was at the top of his game and on such a career roll but he took a break from that with this unbelievable thriller.
Donald Bellisario has been busy cranking out dull TV product for decades (the sleep-inducing "NCIS" series, etc.) Here, he tosses out, thankfully!, his only movie project ever. Let's all kiss the ground for that at least, okay!
This is hilariously awful! It is packed with tons of bad New York stereotypes. It inexplicably features an Irish dude (Berenger) badly trying to pass for Italian. And, worst of all? The impossibly stick-thin Daphne Zuniga is playing Mexican? Really?!
Man, this is bad, BAD, B-A-D! And, the "twists" at the end will leave you shaking your head and desperately trying not to laugh. But, you will laugh, and you will laugh hysterically!
(did I mention this movie wasn't good?)
Lame film with barely any imagination other than the fact that it is very laughable and cheap. Lets see, Tom Berenger plays a priest that has ties to the mob and meets a young girl on the run from a cheated woman. This woman fired two shots at her husband, one to castrate and the other to kill him while he was in "prime". They head down to Mexico, and guess what, the priest falling in love with this lady. Must not judge! I only caught the last quarter of the film and was not impressed. I will give this film another chance if it appears on TV.
