Format: DVD
Alex (Heath Ledger) a rebellious priest from a disappearing fringe of Catholicism goes to Rome to determine the cause of the mysterious death of Dominic, his excommunicated mentor. He is accompanied in his quest by Mara (Shannyn Sossamon), a troubled love who just escaped an institution for the mentally ill and by Thomas (Mark Addy), the other living priest of his church. Together and with the help of a Cardinal (Peter Weller) and a murky and devious character named Chirac, he discovers that a Sin Eater, a person capable of absorbing someone else's sins thus granting them entry to the kingdom of Heaven over God's back, was behind the death of Dominic. When the church refuses Dominic a burial in holy ground, Alex, who is supposed to kill the Sin Eater under the Cardinal's suggestion, is instead lured by him to find the truth and understand the meaning of what he does. Then the conflict between Alex's beliefs and desires begins.
This movie has a well-assembled cast (some returning actors from Brian Helgeland's previous movie A Knight's Tale) and great acting throughout, specially from Ledger and Weller. It has a tight-written, coherent script with wonderful character interactions, great moody music and very-well placed and never overdone special effects. The best thing this movie offers though, is a subconscious lingering question about the darkness that surrounds us, be it as sin, demons, or other supernatural beings. In this regard this movie is more suspenseful and scarier than the best of horror movies.
Watch it, pay attention and enjoy.

After reading numerous critics' reviews of this movie, I went in with the lowest of expectations. In fact, if not for the insistence of my wife, I wouldn't have even bothered checking it out. I admit to being pleasantly surprised. I'd give it a solid 3.5 stars.
This movie delves into the dark side of the Catholic church. Peter Weller is delightfully evil as the "dark pope." Heath Ledger is solid as always. Jon Laurimore turns in a solid, awesome performance as the "Sin Eater", and Shannyn Sassamon gives the only questionable performance. I just couldn't figure out if she was trying to really get into her mentally disturbed character, or if she was too sleepy to really care.
As for the story, I thoroughly enjoyed it. The pacing was great for me. This is not an in your face, gross out, thrill a minute, jump out of your seat movie. It gets under your skin, and deep in the dark recesses of your mind. It's creepy and disturbing.
The movie highlights some fallacies within the beliefs and hiearchy of Catholicism. It is a dark fantasy, and should be accepted as such. If you aren't certain about it, wait for the DVD, but one way or the other, I think you'll enjoy it.

A thought provoking and entertaining film with lots of imagery and some jump out of your seats moments. Not an action thrill ride but not slow moving either. Would certainly make people uncomfortable if they devoutly believed all church teachings.
The story was well acted and Heath Ledger especially gave a mature and "old soul," feel to his approach.

WARNING**: To those who are religious, and esp. practicing Catholics, you might find this movie offensive and/or blasphemous.**
Now that that's out of the way, this movie starts off on the mysterious edge and moves further and further until you're sucked in.
Alex (Heath Ledger) is a young Catholic priest, who has recently heard that his mentor, Dominic, was found dead in his home. The powers that be have written this off as suicide (a cardinal sin) as Dominic had been ex-communicated from the church long ago.
When Alex visits the morgue and sees strange markings upon Dominic's body--he now knows his death was more than just a simple suicide.
Alex and his co-priest, Thomas (Mark Addy), decide to delve into the investigation, and decide that maybe it was other forces that killed Dominic, rather than his own hand.
Alex discovers the "Sin Eaters" --a religious sect that can absolve the sins of the damned, by freeing his soul. When this ritual is done, the sinner's soul is ultimately freed, without knowledge of past sins. The sins (and the knowledge of) are now the burden of the "sin eater". However, this is done for a price--your own life. **
I won't go any further, but by now, you can pretty much get a gist of what the story is about and how it plays out.

I can’t say that this movie is the worst I’ve ever seen. Truth is, I’ve seen worse and I’ve watched those terrible movies because it fascinated me at how terrible they really were.

Although “The Order” wasn’t the worst, unfortunately it did fall in the genre of bad movies for which I watched because I was fascinated at just how terrible they could really be.

Okay so, why was it so bad? Well in the first place, it made no sense. The writers and/or directors didn’t seem to know what they wanted to do. It seems like the plot kept searching for a new “bad guy”. In an attempt to keep the viewer guessing, there were so many twists in the plot that the plot became diffused and very unfocused.

I have no idea if such an “Order” truly exists in Christianity. I’m aware of several religions and or pagan beliefs that involve a “sin eater” but I seriously doubt that one such as the one this movie depicts, exists in Christianity.

Frankly, it seemed to me like the movie was trying to re-create a “The Da Vinci Code” kind of mystery which would build to a final exciting climax. If so, like many other movies that tried to “re-create/rewrite” a previously written, hit story/movie, it failed.

I believe that the performances of all the actors in the movie were excellent. However, their best performances could not have saved this movie. And that’s true for any movie/story that’s written so terribly as to be unable to see the plot or point trying to be made.

The movie started off slow and never really got off the ground. In fact, it went from “slow” to “tediously boring” and then, back to “slow”, (which is better than “tediously boring”, I guess). The filming and the scenery were done very well.
