News & Interviews for Missionary
Critic Reviews for Missionary
Taken strictly as a Cinemax-grade potboiler, "Missionary" is often a hoot, and more effective than it has any right to be.
This lean thriller deftly shows how the fervency needed to wholly embrace any one belief or institution can, if unchecked, yield dire consequences.
A Southern Gothic thriller that begins on a high note but fails to deliver.
The tension in Missionary is surprisingly effective, especially given how easy it should be to put out an APB on a guy on a freaking bicycle ...
Things spiral downhill in predictable fashion, squandering a premise about faith and temptation that should have been much edgier and more provocative.
Audience Reviews for Missionary
You want this movie to be more but with bad story, acting and no clue...it fails on you. Everything is rushed, it becomes hypercritical and lacking suspense. It wants to be Fatal Attraction with a religious element but instead it becomes a Lifetime movie.
