The Reckoning Reviews
A priest who was banished after getting caught having sex with a married woman joins a traveling play. The play arrives in a town where a murder was recently executed and an unlikely woman suspect has been arrested and assigned to be hanged. The play group reenacts the murder in their play in hopes of uncovering clues and those responsible for the killing.
"Man's nature is corrupt."
Paul McGuigan, director of Wicker Park, Lucky Number Sleven, Push, The Acid House, and episodes from the television series Sherlock, Scandal, and Monroe, delivers The Reckoning. The storyline for this picture is above average but the execution is just okay. The acting is better than average and the cast includes Willem Dafoe, Paul Bettany, Brian Cox, Tom Hardy, Vincent Cassel, Ewen Bremner, and Richard Durden.
"You gave her hope."
I came across this on Netflix while reviewing Tom Hardy pictures. This was interesting and fun to watch unfold but is more of a lazy Sunday afternoon movie than a must see. I only recommend seeing this if nothing better is on, but it is worth viewing once.
"We're actors not judges."
story was lame!
