... this falls well short of the Buffy-level resonances at which [Harlin] was presumably aiming.
December 30, 2006
Flying scenes, frat-boy face-offs and pyrotechnic punch-ups are punctuated by excruciating expository dialogue.
December 30, 2006
Director Renny Harlin helms like a bat out of hell, and obviously doesn't know a pentagram from a mammogram.
October 13, 2006
Terribly acted, shamelessly unoriginal and executed with little redeeming sense of humour.
September 30, 2006
[A] muddled and most unmagical offering.
September 30, 2006
There are worse things for a horror-thriller about supernatural high-schoolers to not be. Like not scary. Or not thrilling. Or not as entertaining as an episode of Charmed.
September 15, 2006
There is not a scary scene in the whole movie.
September 15, 2006
The idiocy and sheer laziness of the whole concept ought to be the sort of thing director Renny Harlin (Deep Blue Sea) could make into glorious cinematic cheese...but he's hamstrung
September 13, 2006
This is cobbled-together teenybopper tripe about feuding male witches with nothing to offer but classic bad dialogue.
September 13, 2006
The Covenant is just a copycat.
September 13, 2006
No one has bothered to develop a coherent story or remotely likable characters to sustain the CGI effects, ear-splitting music, and hyperactive editing.
September 13, 2006
Anyone with half a brain is not this movie's target audience.
September 12, 2006
... a supernatural teen drama that wouldn't be so bad if you didn't have to pay good money to see it.
September 10, 2006
[An] eardrum-punishing, uninspired composite of X-Men and the Harry Potter series ...
September 10, 2006
The Covenant has excellent special effects (spiders and specters, oh my!), but it is strikingly lacking in suspense.
September 10, 2006
... as chilling as a steam shower.
September 10, 2006
... if this mild teen thriller were a cigarette, it would be a Salem light.
September 10, 2006
It's super lame.
September 10, 2006
... profoundly mediocre ...
September 10, 2006
The Covenant is a terrible movie, a bucket of water on the teen-witch genre.
