Harlin, with his customary visual brio, has created a film that is deliriously watchable. It's just not all that interesting. In the end, The Covenant is simply a glossier version of TV's "Charmed." Read full review
Utterly stupid and full of lazy plotting and lazier dialogue, this is just idiotic enough to entertain on nights when you want to give your brain a rest. Read full review
The Covenant is dopey, formulaic stuff for the Friday night fright crowd. Worse for them, it's never remotely scary. Read full review
When the villain is revealed, you are neither surprised nor scared. You just think, "That guy?" Read full review
Profoundly mediocre supernatural thriller. Read full review
For the most part, the proceedings are slow, solemn and tedious. Read full review
The idiocy and sheer laziness of the whole concept ought to be the sort of thing director Renny Harlin (Deep Blue Sea) could make into glorious cinematic cheese, and occasionally he cuts loose with a swarm of CGI spiders or a final battle that resembles nothing more than a live action game of "Street Fighter II." But he's hamstrung by the PG-13 rating and the budget. Read full review
It fails utterly as a horror picture, although it delivers plenty of PG-13-rated flesh and unintentional laughs. Read full review

bland and dull
