Starring: Michael Paré, Lee Majors, Philip Michael Thomas

If looking at that cast didn’t dash your hopes for a decent movie, maybe the following scathing review will.

Fate is a really, really, really bad rip-off of Se7en that has Majors playing a religious fanatic murderer who strings along detectives Martin (Paré) and Raines (Thomas) in-between lackluster murder scenes. That’s not all we get, though. Turns out Martin and Raines have a history together, with a lot of animosity still brewing. Not that it all really matters, as the film is so cut and dry that it really means nothing.

MTI was truly scraping bottom of the barrel when they picked up Fate. So was director Cruz, as he picked up three actors who couldn’t care less about the production. This entire movie is flawed, boring, and has that “been there, done that 11ty billion times” feel to it, with nothing to save it.

Advice to the writers of Fate: If you’re going to blatantly steal the plot of a critically acclaimed Hollywood blockbuster, have the killer choose a different sin to start off with. That right there is nearing the pinnacle of laziness.

DVD: While this was a screener DVD, the actual DVD contains some Deleted Scenes. Yippee.
