The story is a bit far-fetched and many of the situations feel forced, but, overall, its moral questions bear examination.
| Original Score: 68/100

Not only does Stigmata revel in anti-Vatican jabs that will offend religious-minded people, it goes over the top with its bloody Exorcist-style story.

Unless you have an unquenchable desire to see blood streaming down Patricia Arquette's face over and over, there's no reason to see Stigmata.

A supernatural thriller about a Vatican conspiracy to suppress an Aramaic text that could shake the foundations of the church.

At first seems to be about the Second Coming but turns out to be a half-baked anticlerical screed.

A leaden exercise in what can go wrong when movies attempt to explore mysterious forces with dated special effects and easy symbolism.

A derivative, pretentious rock video with a half-cocked, quote-unquote religious melodrama.

I don't see the story as an anti-religious film, as much as I saw it as a challenge to having one way of looking at religion.
