The Last Sin Eater

Critics Consensus

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

Movie Info

Die Schwester der kleinen Cadi ist gestorben, und Cadi selbst gibt sich die Schuld daran. Weil in dem kleinen, abgeschiedenen Dorf, in dem Cadi lebt, an den Sin Eater geglaubt wird - einen Mann, der nach dem Tod eines Menschen die Sünden von ihm nimmt -, macht sich Cadi mit ihrem Freund Fagan auf die Suche nach ihm. Sie hofft, dass er ihr Gewissen erleichtern kann.

Critic Reviews for The Last Sin Eater

All Critics (37) | Top Critics (14)

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

    Feb 15, 2007
  • 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.

  • 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.

    Feb 9, 2007 | Rating: 2/5
  • What should be a simple parable of redemption takes nearly an unforgivable 2 1/2 hours.

    Feb 9, 2007 | Rating: 1.5/4
  • The special effects look like they were executed on somebody's laptop.
