Critic Reviews for The Gathering
Well, spend a few quality minutes with The Gathering and you'll see, in short order, just how bad one of these canned atrocities can be.
As a longtime fan of both horror flicks and Christina Ricci, I was willing to overlook The Gathering's five-year delay and actively look for some buried treasure in this flick. Alas, I found none.
the huge gathering of talents and obvious effort invested in this film only makes the general impression more disappointing
Audience Reviews for The Gathering
[img]http://images.rottentomatoes.com/images/user/icons/icon14.gif[/img] It's silly plot and tagline suggested something pretty damn stupid. Whilst watching it my expectations were justified. Overall, it's a barely passable horror flick that suffers hugely from its cliche's, sometimes wooden acting, and cringe worthy script. However Christina Ricci's performance is likable and engaging, she makes the film bareable despite it's faults. The Gathering is enormously predictable, but the dream sequences are cool and filmed brilliantly, and the set pieces are structured to a decent enough quality. The story is also very peculiar and interesting and deals with morals. The result of (some) of the talent could have been a lot better, but for a narratively ridiculous biblical thriller, it's not that bad.
Christine Ricci is alike her co-star Kim Basinger's role in Bless the Child to assist and protect an innocent child in this supernatural thriller. It has more in common with the Hilary Swank film The Reaping than The Da Vinci Code or The Omen.
Basically a lower quality, pseudo-religious Mothman Prophecy. Not especially good, not especially bad.
