      Jeff E I bought the Blu-Ray on a whim at a rental kiosk, and hoo-boy was this not one of Morgan Freeman's finest moments. And it was nice to see Cole Hauser in fine form, and he's actually not bad (in terms of acting a certain archetype) in a movie with awful dialogue. So many things that do not make sense here, and the ending is certainly a stomach-turning surprise. If any movie screams to be rented in a form where you can have alternate endings than the one that was generally released, this movie is it. So now I own a $3.99 Blu-Ray I will never watch again. Someone at the thrift shop is going to get a deal. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 04/12/24 Full Review Angus L Beyond dreadful. Whoever wrote the screenplay couldn't be bothered. Cliched. Corny twist. What was Mr Freeman thinking to be a part of such tripe? Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 04/05/24 Full Review Edward G Wow! That sucked , but I liked it anyway Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/24 Full Review Valerie D Very disappointed that Mr. Freeman, who is an absolutely brilliant actor, would even agree to be part in this poorly produced movie. Mediocre acting skills and bad story line. The police wouldn't handle or act in investigations as portrait in this B rated film. Not worth watching it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Daniel T This is a contender for the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. Nothing makes sense, especially the ending - I wish I had seen the reviews before wasting 92 minutes of my life. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/29/24 Full Review Mark B This movie is really bad. The plot is incomprehensible. I believe they started to film in Europe ran out of money and then tried to salvage by filming in the US. The film quality and the look do not match. The tried to make a coherent story piecing them together, the were not successful. The acting is so bad as if they are reading from queue cards. The dialogue poor. This is film that they had Morgan Freeman for one day I suppose shot stock and edited it together. His parts don't make much sense.

      Alejandro Lingenti La Nación (Argentina) But [Morgan's] work is not enough to improve too much a trite and erratic film that uses a surprise ending as a ditch effort to close a story full of stumbles. [Full review in Spanish] Rated: 2/5 Jan 25, 2024 Full Review Erick Estrada Cinegarage Mr. Morgan Freeman performing a role we've already seen him play, in a story we already know, three screenwriters with very little aim... [Full review in Spanish] Sep 28, 2023 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation What sort of nutty compromises were reached to get financing here, there and everywhere, and round up this cast? Rated: 1/4 Mar 30, 2023 Full Review Michael Talbot-Haynes Film Threat In them, the film goes somewhere beyond the police procedural pale and stands out in a sea of serial killer films. Rated: 8/10 Mar 15, 2023 Full Review Julian Roman MovieWeb The Ritual Killer carves hapless innocents in a disjointed narrative with poorly connected subplots. Former NFL star Vernon Davis is the only high point as a scarred and merciless villain. Rated: 1.5/5 Mar 13, 2023 Full Review Jeffrey M. Anderson Common Sense Media Muddled, vaguely irritating, and somewhat offensive, this un-thrilling thriller moves lifelessly through through its story and has a bizarre head-scratcher of an ending.
