Editorial Reviews

Tom Berenger (Platoon) and Daphne Zuniga (The Sure Thing) set the screen ablaze in this controversial tale of a love affair between a priest and a sexy woman. A relentlessly entertaining tale of lust, betrayal and revenge with a shocking final twist, Last Rites administers equal measures of white-knuckle suspense and white-hot romance. A Mafia hit a vulnerable witness a man of the cloth with a secret past. When Father Michael Pace (Berenger) finds himself drawn to the mistress (Zuniga) of a brutally murdered mobster, he risks his life, his standing and even his faith to protect her in this riveting thriller that will keep you guessing until the final frame.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Movie January 12, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
This movie is about a priest who is the son of the head of a mafia family. Of course he cannot walk in his father's footsteps, so his sister tries to take the lead. The movie has an excellent plot with a suprise ending. It's well worth seeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars High "sleaze" September 10, 2001
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
I own this video; I am on a fixed income so have to choose my purchases VERY carefully. I saw this movie on cable years ago & loved it so much I wanted the video. I love "sleazy" movies [in the old days classified as "film noir"]--mystery, intrigue, plot twists, "good vs. evil," suspense, plot twists & turns]... This movie has all those elements + good acting [I was young when Dane Clark was in his hey-day but have always liked him], Tom Berenger [good in both drama, thrillers & comedy], Daphne Zuniga [CONVINCING damsel-in-distress/victim] & Anne Twomey [I'd never heard of her before this!--MOST capably "playing her part well; there all the honor lies"]. I only wish Donald P. Bellisario would have directed MORE FILMS in this genre. If you like modern-day film noir with a mafia, gangster flavor, you will LOVE this movie. It's not well-known or highly-tauted by the critics, but it's one of my favorites & well-worth the investment.

3.0 out of 5 stars Last Rites, a fitting ending October 2, 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Tom Berenger in one of his best roles. He's very convincing as a priest. His "imagination" is something the viewer can relate to easily. The characters are engaging as the plot twists and turns, with a fitting ending. A very entertaining film; for both men and women.

3.0 out of 5 stars Fun Potboiler B-movie December 15, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Another vote for "guilty pleasure". This movie was implausable, a bit tacky, tawdry, but I enjoyed it anyway. An entertaining yarn. Just don't expect to feel too edified at the end of the movie! It's over-melodramatic typical B-movie fare. Also, some people might be upset by the filmmakers' obvious agenda to get a priest involved in a love affair. And let's face it, we all can tell that this is where the film is headed from the beginning.
The main stars, Tom Berenger and Daphne Zuniga are fine. Tom Berenger always does well as the handsome, tormented and conflicted hero; Daphne Zuniga was very pretty, but I was little confused about her role. There were elements of sleaze to her part (the first scene she's in certainly qualifies) and maybe she's not the best actress for sleaze. I haven't quite made up my mind about that. But still, she was capable enough.
If you are a fan of either Berenger or Zuniga, and don't mind a somewhat tacky, implausable B-movie, you'll get a kick out of this film.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Dark Movie Filled With Action & Suspense July 2, 2008
Format:VHS Tape
A man is murdered while cheating on his wife. The mistress sees the whole thing and is on the run because the killer wants no witnesses. The man's family is a crime syndicate run by a chilling old man. His brother, played by Berenger, is a priest who comes across the beautiful and sensual mistress and tries to help her as he fights the temptation not to touch her. There is a lot of action and guts, with twists that leave you guessing until the shocking end!

4.0 out of 5 stars Guilty Pleasure June 13, 2001
By Terran
Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
I had read years ago this movie was dumped straight to video without a theatrical release, and it seems strange because of how many really bad movies out there get released, but this one is decidedly a guilty pleasure. You can't take it seriously, it's just like most *rebel* or *mafia* movies, it's a lot of fun. In this instance, having the only son of a mafia don (termed "godfather" in the movie, which was going way too far) becoming a priest, and with a strong hint of the sensational reason behind that motivation, it becomes even more interesting as his former brother-in-law's girlfriend comes under his protection and his vow of celebacy is seriously shaken. Actually Freud would have had a field day with this movie. The problem with it, actually, is not enough of the characters - particularly the family itself - is seen interracting with each other so we have a fuller history of the family's relationships and the internal workings of the organization. A rather satisfactory finish, but one could have wished for a sequel or more drawn-out ending. Another problem is star Berenger looks considerably older (and somewhat out-of-shape) than his 33-year-old character should be.

I'm a Tom Berenger fan and this is one of my favorites. The movie keeps you in suspense and the end was a surprise. Ann Twomey and Daphne Zuniga were also good in this movie.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you're a Tom Berenger fan, I recommended this.
I am a big Tom Berenger fan. He makes mediocre scripts better because of his acting. This movie had an original plot and he made it all the more interesting. It's worth seeing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Last Rites
Very interesting "mob-type" film. Fast moving and, in parts, somewhat surreal. Not a movie for the younger audience - violence is too graphic.

The "Last Rites" DVD was okey. The only minor detail that I wasn't happy about is that the picture ratio projects smaller
