Critic Reviews of "The Rite"Time OutFebruary 23, 2011
This is a dreary metaphysical drama dressed in the vestments of a religious horror movie.Newark Star-LedgerJanuary 29, 2011
Oooh. Scary.Rolling StoneJanuary 28, 2011
The Rite goes wrong in every way.Globe and MailJanuary 28, 2011
Starts glumly before flipping into supernatural camp.New York PostJanuary 28, 2011
Despite an impressive cast (excluding the excruciatingly dull O'Donoghue, a newcomer from Ireland), "The Rite" is the sort of misfire that Hollywood has long buried in January.Washington PostJanuary 28, 2011
A run-of-the-mill chiller that spends an inordinate amount of time flirting with unconventional scare tactics before sacrificing all of its ingenuity to become the latest in a long line of "The Exorcist" clones.Philadelphia WeeklyMay 03, 2015
It's one of those films that pretends to take ideas about faith seriously, until it's time for the CGI money shots to kick in.7M PicturesOctober 02, 2013
Though thoroughly predictable, this film is not to be taken too seriously.We Got This CoveredJuly 24, 2013
Poor character development, a thin plot and predictability make this one a forgettable film.Big HollywoodJune 30, 2013
A geniunely creepy film that takes faith and its subject matter seriously.DeadspinJune 23, 2013
This is a movie about priests fighting the evil Baal demon. That's not a spiritual journey "suggested by true events." That's a Tenacious D song.Georgia StraightFebruary 15, 2013
Although Hopkins shines when his evil-infused priest exhibits low-level nastiness, his climactic exorcism scenes don't ring true and aren't very frightening.
