Product description

Product Description

Supernatural teen thriller. The story begins in 1692, when five families from the Ipswich Colony of Massachusetts formed a covenant of silence that would forever protect their remarkable powers. One family went too far, though, and as a result of their transgression they were forever banished from the land. Flash forward to the new millennium and the four Sons of Ipswich are now the student elite at the prestigious Spenser Academy. Bound by their sacred ancestry and sworn to silence, these four teens share a secret so remarkable that it has served to protect their families for hundreds of years. But the past has a way of coming back when you least expect it, and when the fifth Son of Ipswich returns seeking to harness the powers denied him in the past, the battle is on to ensure the safety of The Covenant and lay the one descendent who threatens to reveal their secret to rest once and for all.

Synopsis

Renny Harlin (Die Hard 2, Deep Blue Sea) directs this supernatural thriller about descendants of powerful New England families. The sons of Ipswich are legendary at Spenser Academy, the local boarding school. Handsome and popular, these four teenage friends can trace their roots to the founding families of the Ipswich Colony, settled in the late 1600s. For years these Massachusetts families have harboured the secret that they possess supernatural powers. Their descendants--Caleb (Steven Strait), Reid (Toby Hemingway), Tyler (Chace Crawford), and Pogue (Taylor Kitsch)--have inherited magical powers that first manifested themselves when the boys turned 13 years old. In a nutshell, they can do anything. As they approach their 18th birthdays, they are preparing to 'ascend', which means their powers will grow stronger. The downside? The magic is seductive and addictive, and causes premature aging with each use.
Ringleader Caleb tries to keep his friends from using magic recklessly, but as the school year begins, strange events and a strong gut instinct convince Caleb that someone is using very powerful magic. Meanwhile, Caleb is exploring his newfound affection for transfer student Sarah (Laura Ramsey). To Caleb'’s dismay, Sarah becomes a pawn in a power struggle with a descendant of the fifth founding family of Ipswich, a line thought to be lost during Salem’'s witch trials. Is Caleb strong enough to maintain his power and keep his family and friends safe, or will he yield to this new threat and sacrifice himself? The film draws interesting parallels between the luring, addictive power of magic and the addictions real teenagers face. The sufficiently creepy setting echoes New England and sets the stage for supernatural phenomena. The Covenant also stars Sebastian Stan as Chase Collins, a wealthy newcomer to Spenser, and Jessica Lucas as Kate, Sarah’'s roommate and Pogue’'s girlfriend. --This text refers to an alternate DVD edition.

I can't understand why people complain about the "depth" of the story when this film was obviously designed to be a bit of fun. I would suggest they try Shakespeare - but they'd probably pick fault with the plot holes in Macbeth, Henry V, etc.

It makes a nice change for us females to have a fluffy action film with five attractive male leads to drool over, rather then the usual nubile young females struting around in their bra and panties or flashing the flesh for no apparent reason.

Yes, the script is a little on the lightweight side but so are the Hammer Horror Dracula, Frankenstein and Mummy scripts. As for any plot holes, due to theatrical time constraints there are bound to be bits that have been left on the cutting room floor. I, personally, would like to have seen a full edition of this film with the extra footage included on the dvd release.

The extras are poor but they are the same as the American version so I can't really complain (what am I saying of course I can complain - were are the outtakes, the cast commentaries, and the other items which usually come as standard?)

I'll be honest with you - I like this film, I like it a lot, and I'm not going to apologise for that. It is one of the few films that I can put on my computer and watch while I do my work, or put in the dvd player and watch with family, including my mother. It's nice to have a film that isn't dependent on foul language and nudity to try and keep your attention because it has little or no story.

I read the reviews of this film and though I'd make up my own mind - I would suggest that you do the same.

Possible spoilers be here - The Coventant involves our five handsome leads, and a couple of nubile girlfriends thrown in for the male viewers.

The covenant is a great movie. It is great to see this kind of movie ruled by young professional actors.
After watching the movie you would like to continue watching it, and hoping a second part comes out soon.
Purchassing this movie from amazon UK was a good experience and a great deal.

This is more like 8 out 10 rather than 4 out of 5. I enjoyed the film a lot. I hadn't seen it before but I liked the story and the way it was played out. Typical teen horror/thriller but non the less a great film.

For an early BD release (no DTS HD Mater or Dolby True HD the picture is brilliant. Nice detail and I like the colour pallet. Some times the visual FX show up a bit but not horribly.

What impressed me the most was the PCM uncompressed audio. The 3 dimentionality of it was quite inmpressive. Nothing to do with Dolby Atmos or DTS:X I just have a 7.1 set up but the 5.1 PCM really showed my system off. It will either show how good your surround sound set up is, Show how bad it is or show that it's not set up right.

For any AV enthusiasts out there who like a good reference movie and haven't seen Covenant before I would definitely check it out.
Some key moments for sound are when the Bell is tolling high up in the tower it really sounds like it's above you. Going from in an out of the rain from being totally surrounded buy it to it being placed well when the shot is inside. and for me the best bit is when the bad guy causes the other guy to crash his motor bike. The bike skids right through you and on behind you.

Over all I'm impressed. Its a great Bluray. Only not 5/5 as I'm not a teen any more and haven't been for over 20 years but I do like my films and grade them to my tastes.
