Not really horror as such; more of a dark thriller with some horror elements. It reminded me a good deal of the original The Wicker Man, right down to its location on a Scottish island (one of the Shetlands I this case). Radha Mitchell is excellent as the film's main character, and the plot and pacing were exceptionally well executed. I thoroughly enjoyed everything about this movie and give it my highest recommendation.

First of all, this movie was not made in 2011 and does not feature Cuba Gooding Jr., although it shares its name with a movie that does. This movie is exactly what I was craving - good acting, thrilling plot, twists, elements of a cult, the paranormal and ritual sacrifice. And all this based on a topic I'd never heard of - no old rehashes of Pagan occultism, aliens, ghosts, etc. Plus, I loved that it was directed by a woman, based on a novel by a woman and features two strong female leads out to fight the patriarchy.

Beautifully shot, Sacrifice is reminiscent of the True Detective, Conspiracy, Top of the Lake and The Killing in its imagery, themes and story-telling. I'm a fan of movies including Primer, Sunshine, Upstream Color, Mr. Brooks, Se7en, The Signal, as well as the afore-mentioned television shows. If you're into bizarre, fast-paced, unfolding thrillers, this one's for you. The director and writer give us just enough information to let us guess what's going to happen next before hitting us with the next surprise.

↷ Unfortunately, Amazon is at this time lumping reviews of 2016's Sacrifice in with those of a 2011 movie by the same name. I am reviewing the IFC Midnight 2016 film Sacrifice (typing "Sacrifice Radha Mitchell" into the search box pulls up the right one) ↶

Meet Dr. Tora Hamilton, an obstetrician who also has a knack for getting past locks, operating excavation equipment, and sleuthing to a degree that would cause envy amongst the Scoobies. She also has a milfy air about her, but alas, poor Tora has not yet had luck in becoming a mother. Short story short, she ends up in Shetland, Scotland, and happens upon some grizzly remains. Tora becomes curious... and you know what that does to cats.

Sacrifice is not an amateur production in any respect, including its established actors: Ian McElhinney (trust me, you've seen him before, probably most recently in Game of Thrones), David Robb, and Rupert Graves. It's easy to miss that the protagonist Tora is portrayed by the woman alongside Vin Diesel in Pitch Black, but no matter: Radha Mitchell was awesome in both roles.
Pay no heed to the amazon blurb about a "satanic" cult... ain't nuthin' in Sacrifice got to do with Satan. Despite the movie poster and the title, don't mistake Sacrifice for a horror flick; it isn't particularly scary, and there's a conspicuous absence of gore, given the title. Instead, expect a bunch of retired dudes with guns and machismo. Sacrifice is more of a Sherlock Holmes thriller.

This would be a 4-star film but for the ending. I was onboard with the plot and pace until the last 15 or so minutes, when it suddenly becomes amazingly predictable. It seems to take forever to wrap up once you realize what's *not* going to happen. If nothing else, Sacrifice is a good example of how to paint yourself into a corner as a screenwriter.

I got this movie because I like the work Cuba Gooding Jr. and Christian Slater, both fine actors, who did what they could with this rather flat take on the "war of drugs" film. The story was a predictable good guy vs. bad guy film, with a suffering cop out for revenge, so don't expect any groundbreaking story telling. It's an enjoyable enough movie to watch, with some nice action, and the bad guy getting what he deserves in the end.

Can you have a second chance to stop a tragedy? After losing his wife and child, undercover cop John Hebron (Gooding Jr.) is struggling to forgive himself for not saving them. After a similar crime takes place he is given a second chance. After watching Cuba in "Ticking Clock", which I really liked, I had high hopes for this one. I was a little disappointed. The idea of the movie is very interesting, but the execution is lacking. A plot that has so much potential ends up being slow moving and never given the push it needs to make it as interesting as it sounds. This is not a terrible movie, but definatly not one of Cuba's best. It would be nice to see him get out of the Seagal, Kilmer & Snipes-like direct-to-video movies though and back into main stream movies. He has the talent for them still. I give it a C.

Would I watch again? - I don't think I will.

More like 2.5 stars. I do have one question though....why does Hollywood keep putting Cuba Gooding in movies, as the headliner yet? he has moments of a good performance now and then but certainly not in this movie. I thought that the real star was Devon Bostick. this kid did a great job in the capacity that was given to him. All in all it isn't a bad movie just paced like a snail and I got real bored seeing Cuba with the same puss on his face through the movie. he has a hard time emoting these days. It was predictable and if you don't mind seeing Christian Slater as a befuddled priest then go for it. Be warned not for everyone or maybe not for anyone. the vigilante cop thing has gotten overdone and this one it is very possible we could have lived without.
