A detective (Cole Hauser) hunts an international murderer committing ritualistic killings in a small Mississippi town. He seeks help from an anthropology professor (Morgan Freeman), who is an expert on the ancient rituals being performed.
WoW, I am just blown away by this movie, it was even better than I expected. Freeman's one of my fav actors, but I feel he does not get as many of the worthy scripts he deserves. I was so pleased with this movie, and adding Cole Hauser to the mix sure was pleasing to me also. Without dropping any spoiler; I just want to say that it was EXCELLENT to be shocked by an ending, loved it!!!
The Ritual Killer was mediocre without any highs or lows, cliche ridden and transparently thin. I found myself multi-tasking by the middle of the flick and I didn't miss a thing ...
For fans of Morgan Freeman and Yellowstone’s Cole Hauser, it’s worth the watch. A bit Seven, DaVinci Code (with regard to ritual practices), and western (cowboy justice) all rolled together. I would give it five stars had the plot and characters developed a bit more. The initial scenes of Freeman are important. I only wish it would have incorporated more of that. However, then it might have seemed too much like a Seven ripoff. Otherwise, it’s a worthwhile thriller that highlights differences in culture from a bit of a gruesome, morbid sociological and anthropological point of view.
