Critic Reviews for The Ministers

All Critics (2) | Top Critics (1)

Does John Leguizamo need a better manager, or does he just have terrible taste in scripts? Because aside from voicing the Ice Age movies, he wastes too much time on misfires like this one.

Ministers doesn't thrill or enlighten (the religious slant to the material dries upon application), leaving Franc Reyes with another clunker to his name, and another film deep into his mystifying career.

Audience Reviews for The Ministers


Amateur film making and acting makes this a difficult movie to enjoy. Other than John Leguizamo's performance - everything was B or even C rate! I only hope John Leguizamo was paying rent or doing a friend a favor - he needs my help picking projects!

Poor John Leguizamo. He is an amazing actor, but makes some really bad choices. This movie was basically a bad Boondock Saints rip-off. John actually is great, as always, playing both brothers in a pair of twins. Harvey Keitel seems bored. The lead actress is laughably bad. I mean, she is REALLY bad. In fact, all of the acting is bad. The plot doesn't really go anywhere. Not worth your time.

I had high hopes for this film just to me let down. This movie just couldn't hold my attention. John was pretty good in it but Harvey hardly showed his face. I don't know maybe it was me one this Film?
