All Critics (1)

Reverent, well directed, and well acted… Confession's weakness is also its promotional gimmick: Meyers directed the film at 24, but wrote the screenplay ten years earlier.

Audience Reviews for Confession (Deadly Secrets)

This B-Movie gem is the first leading role for Chris Pine, and it may be his best role to date. Pine plays Luther, the "bad" kid at Catholic school who can get you anything you want. He is however caught and along with his roommate, he is quickly booted out of school. Luther becomes obsessed with finding out who turned him in and when he does, the boy mysterious turns up dead. At a similar time, someone confesses to Priest Michael Kelly, who now knows who and why, but can't say anything. As a result Kelly quickly becomes a suspect leading up to a tremendous finally. Pine, best known as the "new" Captain Kirk was just fantastic. It's a shame this is a B-Movie, because if it had been a major release, he would have gained the recognition he deserves a lot sooner. This film is tremendous, I saw it as a modern day Shakespearean tragedy. It has life, death, religion, intrigue, and much more. It's a great film that fell way under the radar!

There really are no good guys here. Nobody to root for, because just about everyone is slimy and underhanded. And the plot drags a bit. Overall, it's interesting enough, but with a bit more action, some more in-depth acting and maybe another plot twist or two, this would have been a much better film.


Chris Pine plays a student at an all boys catholic school as the rebel & trouble maker selling alcohol, dirty magazines, etc to the kids & acts innocent fooling the priests. Until someone squeals & an unfortunate incident happens. Well Between watching Sands of Oblivion, This & then Frozen.. This was the movie tho not my fare.. I liked best. The character to me is well written showing a well rounded (no wait that?s not the TYPE of person the character is but how the character is written. As Complex as any of us & struggling w/ The issue(s) at hand. C+
