I never thought I'd find myself intrigued with the actions of a mule or that frogs could have an even deeper meaning than what you're probably expecting, but The Rite accomplishes this very well.

Hans is the troupe leader, wealthy, self-contained, growing tired.
But so far it's a decent film that I will remember as one of the good ones from 2011. And he did his job well. Rain is an element used fairly often in the film to usually signify when something has gone wrong or is about to. The cinematography in the film is probably the first thing you'll notice visually. It does not rely on gore to scare you, or major special effects, or 3D.

After decades of miserable exorcism movies, finally we got us a winner. The film seemed to suffer the same fate many other films before it fell victim to and that's giving away too much of the storyline in the trailers. She is Thea, high strung, prone to fits, and seemingly fragile, currently married to Sebastian's new partner, Hans. Speaking of distinguished actors, it was nice seeing Rutger Hauer as well even if it was just for a small role.
The Rite is believable, adequately dark, and yet it doesn't try too terribly hard. He gave a powerful performance which scared the living hell out of me and played his most convincing role since Hannibal Lector but surprisingly so did someone else, someone who i had never heard of. With an engrossing performance by Anthony Hopkins along with a fairly strong cast all around, its fantastic cinematography, surreal dream sequences, and a satisfying conclusion that doesn't hint at a sequel, The Rite is actually a surprisingly decent film all around. Last night, I realized that I must be an exorcism movie fanatic, because Anthony Hopkins and whoever that other guy was reignited something in me. Yes, i am talking about Colin O'Donoghue, who managed to stay in the light and make a great connection with his co-stars. While the film does seem rather reminiscent of The Last Exorcism and borrows the atmosphere from the Heath Ledger film The Order, The Rite is actually a better experience overall. On his way to the course completion, he is overwhelmed by a strong lack of faith.
Its a bit slow, and it is enriched by having at least lay knowledge of Catholic dogma or at least general spirituality. Worst thing about this movie: A little slow. On top of that, it was a film that revolved around exorcism which is a subject that usually leads to disappointing results. The Rite looked like it would be a mixed bag right from the start.

. Whether the camera is placed up high to make it seem like you're looking down on the cast from the heavens or down low as if you're looking up at them from the depths of the earth, the rain sequences in the film are definitely some of the most memorable due to the camera work. Can i dare say that this movie is better than The Exorcist? Expectations would lead one to believe that The Rite would have enough momentum to reel you in only to drop the ball during its finale similar to last year's The Last Exorcism except hopefully without the appearance of a neon red, glow in the dark fetus. I have seen every mainstream exorcism flick in, at least, the last ten years Exorcism of Emily Rose, The Last Exorcism, Dominion: Prequel to the Exorcist, and all of the exorcists for that matter. The Rite looked like it would be a mixed bag right from the start.
I've always been a fan of the surreal, the imaginative, the creative, and the things that don't seem to make sense at first but gain meaning as the film or story progresses. The feel of this film, the length. Every character in the movie was fully utilized specially that of Alice Braga. Father Lucas Trevant is the strongest and creepiest role Hopkins has played since Hannibal Lecter and his best role overall in years. It'll probably be forgotten about in a year filled with so many blockbuster film releases, but considering that January and February are usually filled with such monstrous duds at the box office The Rite manages to surpass expectations.

Evren Buyruk Sometimes you read reviews, but want to see the film so bad, you go, and because your expectations are so low. By film's end, this character is fully developed.
The dream sequences and hallucinations in the film may have been my hands down favorite. Even in his 70's, Mr Hopkins did just what was expected from him. This movie brought the exorcism sub-genre? The opening of the film makes things like dripping embalming fluid, a swing set on a playground, and an overturned shopping cart seem more interesting than they really are. I find that many people fail to see the spark in this film, and the only reason i can think of is that people these days are too fond of gore which this movie lacks. The dream sequences and hallucinations in the film may have been my hands down favorite. It's just amazing seeing a man in his seventies give a performance that's this physical and this absorbing. He was picked for a good reason.
