Incarnate online movie review - Like 'THE EXORCIST' meets 'INCEPTION' (but it's not nearly as good as either of those movies though).
'INCARNATE': Three Stars (Out of Five)
The new supernatural horror flick directed by Brad Peyton; who previously helmed 'SAN ANDREAS' and 'JOURNEY 2: THE MYSTERIOUS ISLAND' (both starring The Rock). The film is about a modern day exorcist, who's not religious (and insists he's not an exorcist), that takes on a very powerful demon, from his past, that possesses an 11-year-old boy. The movie was written by Ronnie Christensen; and it stars Aaron Eckhart, Carice van Houten, Catalina Sandino Moreno and David Mazouz. It's received mostly negative reviews from critics, and it hasn't made much money at the Box Office (it only cost $5 million to make though). I found it to be slightly entertaining.
Dr. Seth Ember (Eckhart) has the very special, and very unique, ability to enter the subconscious of people that are possessed. Because Ember doesn't really believe in God, or demons, he doesn't see it that way though. Still he combats the creatures. His latest assignment has him helping an 11-year-old boy (Mazouz), that's been taken over by an evil entity from Ember's past. The job proves to be the exorcist's most challenging assignment yet.
The film has a pretty cool premise; it's kind of like 'THE EXORCIST' meets 'INCEPTION' (but it's not nearly as good as either of those movies though). Eckhart is great in the lead, but I think his talents are more than this film deserves. The movie is mildly frightening, slightly disturbing, and somewhat intriguing; but it never does enough with all of that potential. I think it's definitely worth a watch though, if you're a fan of the genre.
