DVD Review: Sinners and Saints (Video 2004)

Father Charmichael Drake (Jason Cavalier) is tormented by his clairvoyant dreams, which in turn drive him to fight crime and the forces of evil. The demon slaying priest and Sister Jordan Merrick (Elizabeth Faure) get more than they bargained for when summoned by the Queen Of Hell (Melantha Blackthorne ) to bring justice to the Hades dimension. Sinners and Saints is written by Jason Cavalier, Godfree Master, Kevin Woodhouse and Melantha Blackthorne who also is the director. The acting isn´t very good but it isn´t catastrophic either. The camerawork and editing is okay as is the soundtrack. There is plenty of action, shootouts, martial arts and swordplay. The fight-choreography is actually pretty good and the stylized fightscenes (utilizing wirework) and swordplay are definitely the highlights of Sinners and Saints. There is some gore, practical make-up fx but nothing spectacular and they use cgi for some fx and for some enviroments and it looks like crap. In the T & A department I can report topless nudity. There is a rapescene that´s pretty violent and downright nasty even if it´s not overtly graphic.
This review is based upon the region 1 DVD release from Robomonkey Productions.
Rating: 1 out of 7. It´s a eccentric oddity that feels disjointed and confusing but it isn´t a complete mess.
