I was in
shock when I left the theatre after seeing this film. It was so
good. Frailty plays mind games and traps that you in
desperate corners of the world that you can't get out of. The
intelligent plot twists creep in your mind until the last five
minutes of the movie, when you figure the whole thing out. This
unbelievable story, cast, and director made the movie shine. It
was a wonderful film that I will always remember. I wouldn't be
surprised if this makes number one on my "Top Movies of 2002"
Bill Paxton's debut film is incredible. He put endless work
into it, and it paid off tremendously. Anyone who can act and
direct at the same time is a filmmaking genius. It's hard to
direct, and watch other actors when you're tying to act yourself!
Even though it hasn't been bringing in much attention (or money),
Frailty certainly deserves more recognition. It's a truly
monumental film and is an extraordinary achievement.
The interesting and intelligent plot twist made this the
movie what it its. It creates an exuberant vibe in your head to
make you question the characters. The entire plot is unpredictable
until the last few minutes, when it all comes together. Brent
Hanley offered beautiful imagination and color in one of the best
scripts I've seen in years. The mood and haunting premise linger
in your brain throughout the duration, creating tension between

offended by some parts of the plot. If you are very religious, you
will hate this film, just for the sake of disliking it. But, from
an entertainment standpoint,
Frailty is a top-notch thriller full of spine-tingling
delight. If you don't look at it from a religious standpoint, you
will absolutely love the movie and all of its wonderful qualities.
a respectable, intelligent, nail-biting, horrific thriller.
Everyone and everything about it was wonderful from an
entertainment, as well as filmmaking, standpoint. The movie that
makes you think will always be the best one. This motion picture
certainly does that. All of the components in Frailty are
wonderful; I'll leave it at that. There is evident magic in the
tention of the fabulous story. This will be a definite add to my
DVD collection when it comes out. It was truly amazing.
