      Bobby LePire Film Threat Rite Of The Shaman is an engaging, dramatic look at the obstacles life throws our way. Rated: 7.5/10 Oct 12, 2022 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation The writing lacks subtlety...The acting is uneven — tepid to unpolished. It’s entirely too touchy-feely and squishy to grapple its subject in a compelling and meaningful way. Rated: 1.5/4 Oct 9, 2022 Full Review Read all reviews

      christian r This movie has been described to me as a curriculum in compassion, and it is. In just over an hour, with the help of gorgeous scenery and a powerful score, Rite of the Shaman will move you in a way you will not soon forget. I'm not kidding. See this one. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/01/22 Full Review steve d The majority who watched this got it. A few did not. I recommend the few that didn't go back and watch it again. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review mimi jessie j Such a sweet movie by mother and son! Characters make you want to cry once the end comes! Hopefully a rite of shaman part two! Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review J S Strange set up with no payoff. Very amateurish Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 10/10/22 Full Review Audience Member Amazing movie witha great message. This is definitely a feel good film that we really need right now in our struggling society. You leave with a greater perception in life and on the small choices you make that can and will make a big difference. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member This is such a deep. Really uplifting and a beautiful ending with a great message. Tyrell Oberle really stood out in this film too. Great actor and the director did an exceptional job making this come alive. 5 stars from me! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/05/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
