Resurrection ★★★½

Look, I have a huge soft spot for SE7EN rip-offs (especially when they’re not Hellraiser/Saw sequels), and this probably the most blatant one I’ve seen yet. The writing isn’t quite there, the score is pretty bad, the directing isn’t Mulcahy’s best, and Christopher Lambert, as always, acts/looks like Tom Jane got stuck in a talent/charisma-vacuum that left him French and incapable making any kind of human dialogue work, but I honestly didn’t mind it much at all. Lambert’s detective finding a clue in the bible that he keeps sputtering out as “BO-NER… -jeez” or struggling to solve Roman numeral clues like this lady are worth the price of admission alone. If you need further convincing, please note that David Cronenberg plays a priest.
