Sure, when I sat down to watch "The Last Exorcist", I sort of had a feeling at the back of the head telling me that this was going to just be another one of those a dime a dozen exorcist films that doesn't really deliver.And guess what? It sure was...Kind of is amazing that three writers - Robin Bain, Amy Brown Carver and Lizze Gordon - collectively failed to concoct something worthwhile. I mean, three minds should be way more creative than a single mind. But apparently not, because "The Last Exorcist" was just a boring movie, frankly speaking.The storyline told in this movie wasn't really interesting, and there simply was just too little happening of any worth throughout the entire course of the movie. This resulted in the movie, as directed by Robin Bain, felt unfathomably long and slow paced. Yet, I still managed to endure the movie to the bitter end. Were I entertained? No! So why stick with the movie? Well, I kind of hoped that the movie would pick up its pacing and turn to a more interesting approach. That just never happened.The acting in "The Last Exorcist" wasn't particularly outstanding. I mean, for the majority then people were doing adequate enough jobs, but there just weren't any performances that were memorable or outstanding.Visually then "The Last Exorcist" was adequate. Sure, this wasn't a movie that was heavily relying on special effects, luckily enough. So whatever effects and make-up was used actually worked out well enough.Sure, I will admit that I sat down to watch the movie because Danny Trejo was branded on the movie's cover/poster, yet he wasn't actually one of the main performers. But given the fact that his name was the only familiar name on the cast list, of course they put him on the cover.My rating of "The Last Exorcist" is a mere three out of ten stars. This movie, while being semi-watchable, wasn't an entertaining or a fulfilling movie. There are far better exorcism movies out there. 041b061a72
