Movie Info

Years after a drunken car crash that almost took his life, Tommy Carter has reinvented himself as a therapist/spiritual advisor who advocates a synthesis of world religions and positivity. He's parlayed this vocation into a successful book release that one day draws the attention of Angel Sanchez, a profoundly troubled man fixated on the "untimely" death of his mother. When Carter takes on Sanchez as a personal client in an effort to raise funds for his indebted brother Ben, things quickly take a turn for the worse. Angel needs much more than a simple life coach. -- (C) Lionsgate

Critic Reviews for Repentance

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

A movie of modest means that nevertheless offers a fairly cohesive story and at least one standout performance.

Despite convincing performances, the fatal flaw is the attempt to meld two genres together that don't quite work.

A mopey thriller that unsuccessfully tries to blend psychological portraiture with pointless tension derived from torture, Caland's film wastes two performances that outstrip the material's intelligence deficit.

Repentance likes to imagine it traffics in shock, but it's the kind of movie where everyone and everything is exactly as they appear.

Audience Reviews for Repentance

Dull and uninvolving, Repentance wastes it's strong cast and creepy atmosphere in a insipid retread of every cliche and trope involved with psychological horrors.

decent. there were parts of this movie that I thought could've been done better but forest Whitaker did some great acting and so did the other lead. and the twist ending wasn't bad.

The plot is ,basically the same as "Misery". The acting is subpar, especially Epps, who sleep walks through his gangsta brother role.
