Reviews:

Well-intentioned, but nothing special.
Donald Sutherland plays Father Robert Koesler, a priest in Detroit who hears the confession of a murderer who is going around offing various priests and nuns. After doing some amateur sleuthing, Koesler figures out who the killer is. But he’s bound by church law to say nothing. His superiors – among them, the hard nosed, conservative Ted Nabors (Charles Durning) – believe that nothing can violate the sanctity of the confessional. So, as you can guess, Koesler is a very troubled man. Koznicki (Josef Sommer), the detective on the case, is not as concerned with the rules of the Catholic church, aiming to catch himself a killer.

This sure sounds like a neat premise for a thriller, but on the whole the story isn’t told in a particularly interesting way. The subplot of a potential romance, between Koesler and Pat Lennon (a reasonably appealing Belinda Bauer), really doesn’t add anything to the material. Fred Walton (“When a Stranger Calls” ’79, “April Fool’s Day” ’86) directs with competence and gives the proceedings a very somber quality. On location shooting (“The Rosary Murders” was actually filmed in Detroit) helps a bit, although the story doesn’t exactly hold any surprises. (The killer turns out to be a truly disgusting piece of work.) That’s too bad, considering that the two credited screenwriters are director Walton and the great author Elmore Leonard. There is a moment around the one hour mark that struck this viewer as simply too hard to swallow.

There are some solid actors and familiar faces among the cast: Anita Barone, Rex Everhart, Stefan Gierasch, Tom Mardirosian, Mark Margolis, James Murtaugh, Lupe Ontiveros, Addison Powell. But the movie is anchored the most by Sutherland, who plays Koesler as an easygoing, likable chap with a fairly progressive and compassionate attitude.

He and Durning manage to make this worth seeing.

Six out of 10.
