Reaping, The : Movie Review

Upon reflection, it's not difficult to understand why The Reaping languished for so long on the shelves of Warner Brothers before being dumped into distribution. (Those with long memories may recall trailers for this movie popping up about a year ago.) The film, despite attempts at edit-room reparation, is virtually unreleasable. For about 50 minutes, it's reasonably coherent and offers a few interesting ideas and characters, then it all implodes in a rather spectacular fashion. When it's all done, no one - not the filmmakers, the characters, or the audience - can make sense of the debris, nor is it worth the effort to try. When it comes to the storyline, God only knows.
