Critic Reviews for Persecuted

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (5)

Persecuted squanders the talents of its impressive cast -- including James Remar, Bruce Davison, Fred Dalton Thompson and Dean Stockwell -- with its bizarre premise and inept execution.

Jul 18, 2014 | Full Review…

A heavy-handed and didactic drama which also manages to be totally mushy in terms of the message it's trying to convey.

Jul 18, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Just why one particular TV preacher is so all-fired important isn't clear, and neither is anything else about this overwrought mess.

Jul 17, 2014 | Full Review…

Straw-man cinema doesn't get much more ludicrous than this heavy-handed, Christian-themed minister-on-the-run thriller.

The Lord works in mysterious ways but "Persecuted" works in blundering, obvious ways, straining a Christianity-under-attack theme through a dopey thriller.

Jul 16, 2014 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

Shouldn't a film about religious tolerance be showing us a man living by example? Instead, we get an image of a bloody, gun-holding hand wrapped in rosary beads. Nice!
