    Oof. Kind of feels like the pitch meeting for this one basically went "So I was just reading about the idea of this 'Sin Eater' thing on Wikipedia the other day, it actually sounds really interesting, I'm super keen to put it in a movie!" "Oh great, so what's the story gonna be?" "I'm sorry the what?" "The story. You can't just say you're gonna put a Sin Eater in 'a movie' you have to like... Actually make the movie that it goes in. What's the movie gonna be about?" "...Oh no." "I mean it'll probably be fine." "Right? It'll probably be fine."

    Oo-oo-oo Siiiiin Eatah. I believe you can get me through the ni-oh, sorry, I went 70's there for a second. But enough about a great music generation, let's discuss a great movie... some other time, seeing as "The Order" is certainly not one. Though Ledger puts on a good performance, it's the lack of immediate development and engagment, bad directing, underwhelmingness, poor visual effects, forced development and above all, terrible writing that stand out the most and leave "The Order" to be an embarassing "thriller".

    To place a Medieval mystery in modern days would have been a great achievement. Too bad the movie doesn't seem to understand the needs of a mystery, its delicate structure. The grotesque of the caricature ridicules the whole story, which otherwise would have been interesting to follow.
