It's hard to find a bad Hilary
Swank movie and unfortunately the first three quarters of The
Reaping borders on tedium, not from bad acting but a rather slow
plot. The beautiful Hilary Swank stars as Katherine Winter, a former
Christian missionary who lose her faith in Africa when her family
This has caused Katherine to
become a scientific Myth Buster who travels around the world
attempting to debunk Holy miracles. Unfortunately for Katherine, she
soon encounters a variety of biblical plagues that she cannot
explain and is drawn into a strange world that rekindles her faith.
The story itself seems to have
been taken from a variety of other Christian horror movies that
starts extremely slow and leads to a clichéd ending that does
contain a variety of impressive special effects. The majority of the cast is
brilliant, especially Swank but the plot and clichéd Southern
characters leave the viewer a tad bored.
