Movie #Review - The Sin Seer

Format: Urban Movie Channel Streaming

Synopsis per IMDB: Rose Ricard has a gift, she can see into your soul. She can discern the truth from a lie and sometimes, she can perceive the very thoughts before they are formed in your mind. She uses these gifts to solve unsolved cases and bring closure where there is none. Her most recent case, unwittingly opens the doors to her own past and that of her new partner Grant Summit.

My Review:

I was excited about this movie as the premise intrigued me. Add to that the fact that many of the actors (Isaiah Washington, Lisa Arrindell, Salli Richardson-Whitfield, C Thomas Howell, Richard Brooks) are some I have truly enjoyed watching in the past, and I was sure this movie was going to be great.

So here's the rundown: The cinematography was nice, but the story fell flat and left me more than disappointed. And the ending, the big climax? No, uh-uh. Didn't work for me.

Lisa Arrindell's character was interesting, but her portrayal was odd and not in a good way. It was a bit off in my opinion, as was just about everyone else's. TONS of over-acting from experienced, seasoned actors. This, to me, is an example of talented actors in the wrong movie at the wrong time with the wrong director. 

The Sin Seer could have and should have been great, but for me, it was merely watchable.
