March 17, 2014
An ordeal to sit through.

You'll be wishing you'd gotten your satanic-flick fix by staying home and renting The Omen.

There are some fantastic concepts, but they are presented in the most convoluted and careless manner.
December 28, 2010
There's little reason to watch this mess.

"The Order" is a halfhearted "supernatural thriller"%u2014interpret as not an actual "horror" movie...

It's long on atmosphere and whispered moments of creepy discovery.

Devout Catholics will be appalled; everyone else will be asleep.

... it has a curious disorder, one that makes it both interesting and pallid.

It's preposterous, silly rather than frightening, and the performances and characterizations have a pot-boiler feel.

Frequently descends into unintentional hilarity, nervous camp, and eventually exasperation.

...the movie makes little sense even for a guy more than willing to suspend his disbelief, as I was.

Blood in. Blood out. Eye roll.

From the casting to the plot to the monologues that come off sounding like SNL jokes, everything here is just plain sloppy.
September 11, 2003
The film's failed gothic look is just ugly, so forcibly dank that important details, like which characters are in a certain scene, sometimes get lost.

In what church is Heath Ledger a priest? And who are the nuns - Heather Graham and Tara Reid?
