Movie Preview: The Reaping

When I first started watching the trailer for The Reaping, which comes out this Thursday, April 5, I was like, "Hey, this looks pretty cool!" But then, just as quickly, I was like, "Nah." The premise sounds really interesting: A small town in Louisiana appears to be suffering through the 10 Biblical plagues, attracting the attention of a Christian missionary-turned-scientific expert. Yet the woman — played by a girlish Hilary Swank — begins to regain her faith in religion when she can't explain away the town's mysterious happenings.

The execution of said premise, however, looks hokey, and what should be chilling is instead kind of "eh." You can check out the trailer and tell me what you think of The Reaping if you

i'm hoping the really big twist is matt damon & ben affleck reprising their roles from dogma.

And the message is...???? The trailer is well put together, but I agree: it does look as though the movie is hokey. (Hilary Swank, though, does look good in these clips.)

I'm kind of embarrassed by this movie. Seriously, every time I see a billboard (yes, they are using billboard advertisements) or the preview on TV, I just get really embarrassed for the folks behind this movie. I mean, what is going to be the big twist? Hilary Swank believes in God again? Or there is no God? Oooo such a clever argument. I bet no one has done that before! I also hate that "What hath God wrought?" tag line. Jeez, they must be hurting for writers and creativity in Hollywood...more than I already suspected.
