The Ritual Killer
A detective on the verge of retirement teams with a professor of African Studies to track down a serial killer who is performing the ancient black magic practice of Muti.
There is absolutely no flow to this. No scene transition. Almost half of the scenes so far don’t even make sense when added to the rest.
The actors/ actresses feel like they’re reading their lines for a radio broadcast. No inflection or emotion whatsoever.
To cap it off, this is a movie that is about a ritualistic serial killer but the whole thing feels like its trying to pass the PG rating criteria.
The entire scene in the morgue where the guy is describing the injuries to the body but they NEVER SHOW a SINGLE injury or even a glimpse of the body whatsoever. They could have been looking at a chicken sandwich for all we know.
Shame on you for agreeing to this, Morgan Freeman. Shame!
Great yarn, excellent script with some licences in pro of story.
Acting is so so by most of the cast but Morgan Freeman delivers, very solidly. There are many gory scenes that can prove gory to many in the audience. Direction is good, the film pace never lets down and flashbacks give explanation and don’t deter the storytelling. The end is satisfactory and the stury scene meaningful and fulfilling, leaving you with a sense of prevailing good over egoism and lack of sruples for personal benefit.
