FBI agent Wesley Doyle is startled by the spontaneous declaration of youngster Fenton Meiks about how his father’s delusions to have a divine mission as avenging angel required him and his brother Adam to become his ‘demon-slaying’ murder accomplices. And how hard an dangerously revolting proved. But when Doyle accepts to be shown concealed victim graves, the plot twists in the present just as gruesomely.
I thought this movie was okay, but nothing great. It’s more of a Drama/Thriller movie, than a Horror movie, in my opinion. I’m not sure why so many websites have this movie listed under the Horror genre. The only part I liked the most was the ending. Everything else seemed to bore me. I even caught myself falling asleep, at some scenes.
As for the storyline, I thought it was decent, but could have been a lot better. If you watch television shows like CSI, Law & Order, and NCIS, then you can probably guess how the story ends and you know what’s about to happen, before it even does. It’s probably why I didn’t like this movie, as much as other people did.
As for the actors, I thought everyone played their parts great. I didn’t haven any issues with anyone, that I can remember. I thought both Bill Paxton and Matthew McConaughey played their character roles great, without any problems. The only bad thing was Matthew McConaughey did the narration, more than anything else.
If you haven’t seen this movie, it’s worth watching, maybe once but nothing more than that. If you’re the type of person who fears God and gets into a lot of religion, then you’ll probably enjoy this film. If you are looking for a movie that is more on a horror film level, you probably won’t like this movie. It’s probably why I didn’t like it too much, come to think about it. I found this movie under someone’s top scariest movies, and was hoping for something scary. So, that might be why I didn’t enjoy Frailty that much.
