A bad copy of the Exorcist. Until it manages to stay away from the Exorcist territory, in the first part, it's not bad and makes the audience hope for a fresh view on this subject, but after that it gets so similar to the 1973 picture in its core element (the old wise priest and the doubtful young one), in the ending (the ending is different here but something very similar was hinted in the last part of the Exorcist too) and even in some dialogues that's impossible to avoid a comparison. The reference is so evident that Anthony Hopkins' character says, at one point, "were you expecting spinning heads and pea soup?", meaning that the creators too were aware of that. The problem is that this movie loses completely the confront, so i couldn't understand why they decided to play the same game of the Exorcist instead of trying something different and original. It's not scary, it has undevelopped and uninteresting characters (Anthony Hopkins, when he's not redoing the Hannibal Lecter kind of character, manages to create some tension in the climax but Colin O'Donoghue has the same expression from the beginning till the end. Besides that, I couldn't understand the reason for Alice Braga's character to exist, apart from doing the mandatory motivating speech to the "hero" before the aforementioned climax) and it's visually boring (it uses the orange-blue color scheme in too many parts, for actors eyes bulbs too, making it boring).
