The Last Sin Eater (2007)



Critic Consensus: This earnest Christian parable is undone by its pompous dialogue and cheap FX.

Critic Reviews for The Last Sin Eater

All Critics (38) | Top Critics (15)

Squanders its good intentions with its numbingly bloated 140-minute running time.

Top Critic

Unfortunately for God-fearing youths in desperate need of counseling on the horrors of sin-eating, [Cadi's] spiritual awakening will likely put audiences to sleep.

Top Critic

The Last Sin Eater is close to nature and boasts many of the elements we expect from solid family entertainment, albeit with tragic overtones that keep the story grounded in a rich emotional context.

It has the same dramatic flatness of Love's Abiding Joy, which was made by the same filmmakers. Frankly, these folks are more suited to the Hallmark Channel.

What should be a simple parable of redemption takes nearly an unforgivable 2 1/2 hours.

The special effects look like they were executed on somebody's laptop.

Audience Reviews for The Last Sin Eater


Fox Family Films has nothing but great films and this is another one, Great for ages 12-99. Ranks up there with the movie a Night with the King. You will not be sorry you get this one

Super Reviewer

Between the terrible production quality and the even more terrible score, I just could not sit through this. It went nowhere in the time I spent trying to watch it, and I just did not care how it ended. Don't waste your time.


NOT your typical sappy cookie-cutter Christian flick. VERY well written script, great acting and directing.
