5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding testmonial story - Hopkins at his best!, 10 Jun 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Rite [DVD] [2011] (DVD)
I note first that 'The Rite' is officially decribed as a 'supernatural thriller.' Thriller is not really correct, given the story is based on true events in recent years, as written about in 'The Rite' by Matt Baglio. Baglio wrote about the experiences of an experienced priest from the west US while in Italy. The movie is based pretty much on the book itself, with the main exception being that the priest is dramatized as a young person, unlike who the character is actually based on.

It is an excellent first-rate movie, and one that focuses on the reality and necessity in society of dealing with possessions of people through the rites of deliverances and exorcisms by trained and learned individuals.

Note: If you are interested in the subject of exorcisms, be aware not to take it lightly nor to consider attempting it yourself. It is dangerous for the untrained, and can potentially leave the victimized worse off if not done properly and within certain strict conditions.

Other than that, enjoy the movie! I also recommend Baglio's book which is excellent and also available on Amazon.
