Good movie...

on 1/31/2007

I liked the movie. The story was good, the special effects were good and even though the actors were basically newcomers and unknowns, they were convincing in thier roles. Since this movie was mostly about male witches nearing thier 18th birthday when they would receive thier full powers, it made for a very handsome cast. The guys are all what I would call 'hot', and that always helps a movie. :o)

Editors Note
Note Renny Harlin (DIE HARD 2, DEEP BLUE SEA) directs this supernatural thriller about descendants of powerful New England families. The sons of Ipswich are legendary at Spenser Academy, the local boarding school. Handsome and popular, these four teenage friends can trace their roots to the founding families of the Ipswich Colony, settled in the late 1600s. For years these Massachusetts families have harbored the secret that they possess supernatural powers. Their descendants--Caleb (Steven Strait), Reid (Toby Hemingway), Tyler (Chace Crawford), and Pogue (Taylor Kitsch)--have inherited magical powers that first manifested themselves when the boys turned 13 years old. In a nutshell, they can do anything. As they approach their 18th birthdays, they are preparing to "ascend," which means their powers will grow stronger. The downside? The magic is seductive and addictive, and causes premature aging with each use. ^Ringleader Caleb tries to keep his friends from using magic recklessly, but as the school year begins, strange events and a strong gut instinct convince Caleb that someone is using very powerful magic. Meanwhile, Caleb is exploring his newfound affection for transfer student Sarah (Laura Ramsey). To Caleb's dismay, Sarah becomes a pawn in a power struggle with a descendant of the fifth founding family of Ipswich, a line thought to be lost during Salem's witch trials. Is Caleb strong enough to maintain his power and keep his family and friends safe, or will he yield to this new threat and sacrifice himself? The film draws interesting parallels between the luring, addictive power of magic and the addictions real teenagers face. The sufficiently creepy setting echoes New England and sets the stage for supernatural phenomena. THE COVENANT also stars Sebastian Stan as Chase Collins, a wealthy newcomer to Spenser, and Jessica Lucas as Kate, Sarah's roommate and Pogue's girlfriend.

ReviewSource San Francisco Chronicle
Review The movie about modern-day warlocks has one of those plots where who gets asked to the dance is almost as important as the fate of the planet. A group of teen boys have all the power in the world, and like Scott Baio in "Zapped," they use it to lift a girl's skirt...It's not quite as stupid as it sounds, partly because Harlin knows how to direct action and partly because the actors are so darn good-looking. Strait in particular has sort of a Rob Lowe-in-"St. Elmo's Fire" thing going. Maybe there's a midseason replacement show on the new CW network that still needs a male lead.
