      Steve D Glenn is great but the story is too childish for the material. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Scott Glenn, often taciturn and by way of his acting, very inward looking presents a steely figure as both an FBI agent and father to young Jesse, who as the plot unwinds is taken by the pedophile/serial killer/religious zealot that the FBI is tracking. Save for the glorious absurdity of an ark being built in a cave in the dry Utah mountains, the film presents an almost believable father/son relationship strained by loss and a cross country move. Violent at times, but not gory by current standards, the chills and thrills here are played as Glenn does best: understated and emotionally reserved. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member Underrated made for hbo b movie. Glenn is excellent as usual! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Despite the fact that a seasoned FBI agent needs his pre-pubescent son to do his investigating for him, and that parts of this seem more like a high school class project than a professional film, this movie is creepy and interesting enough to be enjoyed. Sometimes, gore > shine. Extra half star for a baby elephant and two adorable orangutans! Thanks Joe, for suggesting this one. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member "If thy eye offends thee, pluck it out" Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Audience Member A 'Silence of the Lambs' wannabe that is actually not too shabby. Scott Glen takes second seat to a young boy out to discover the identity of a killer... which of course sounds cheesy enough. Nothing I would actively search out, but not something to be avoided.
