This wasn't bad at all. It does bear a strong resemblance to SEVEN but its interesting enough in its own right to warrant at least one viewing. The film looks great, all washed-out greens and blues and grays--and it benefits from the restless, edgy camera-work by Jonathan Freeman. There is a surprisingly good performance from Christopher Lambert. Leland Orser also provides strong support as Lambert's partner. The film breaks down and becomes somewhat predictable by the 3rd act; there are a few too many car chases and shoot-outs,and the rooftop showdown with the villain dangling a rubber-looking baby over the rainy precipice is actually rather laughable, but for the first two-thirds, RESURRECTION is pretty gripping. It's nice to see the director Russell Mulcahy teaming up with Christopher Lambert again. Perhaps its their long association that has enabled Lambert to give one of his best performances; when actors form working partnerships with specific directors, the results usually get better and better as their collaborations progress. I enjoyed this film more than ALONG CAME A SPIDER.

...and why?
*Director Russell Mulcahy does wonders with some overused techniques: slowmo; the zoom technique; the amazing chase sequence through the train station. The use of lighting and rain; his command of the actors--rarely has a cop movie captured a cop's reactions to the grotesque murders; his unique vision---this is a major talent, who needs to achieve greater recognition.
*Christopher Lambert is not a great actor, but I feel this is his finest performance, evoking the grief over the death of his son; his determination to nail the killer; his relationship with his wife and his partner; his humanity.
*Leland Orsler as Andy is marvelous; human, funny, sensitive--his performance is a kaleidoscope of acting techniques. He steals the scenes he's in. His reaction to losing his leg is heartbreaking.
*The serial killer is brutal and heinous to the nth degree. His crimes are horrifying; when Lambert stumbles onto a recent kill, a man tied to a pole, with his right leg gone, blood gushing out and Lambert valiantly trying to stop the flow, this is one of the hardest hitting scenes in any serial killer movie.
This is a great movie, underappreciated. One of the best I've seen.

With the first movements of this movie you will start to wonder why they made it in the first place ,That's because of the very visible resemblances with some elements of (Se7en) ,The scene where Detective John Prudhomme (Christopher Lambert) and his partner detective heading for the scene of the first crime you can't help but notice the pouring rain falls on and around them ,This makes you remember the same opening scene from (Se7en) where were Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman walking under the rain heading for the crime scene ,This resemblance is more approved when they browse the murder's details ,The same dark witty atmosphere and the same gore of the dead body condition ,After that we get to collect the plot ties together where the mysterious killer is collecting the body parts of his chosen victims ,Detective Prudhomme discovers that the killer is doing this for the wicked purpose of assembling a human body contains various body parts as a sacrifice for Jesus Christ ,And till this point the story seems in the region of the ordinary psychological thrillers ,With the same concepts of (Se7en) trademarks .Read more ›

Mulcahy and Lambert bring a bloody serial killer film to the subgenre...about ten years too late.
Lambert is a Chicago detective on the trail of a killer who is using the Bible as a guide in order to fulfill his own sick prophecy, resurrecting what he thinks is the body of Christ. The cops catch the killer, lose him, and eventually, a showdown right out of "Seven."
The plot is very good, and very complicated for a straight to video suspense release. Mulcahy shows some incredible directing chops, although you swear David Fincher had his hands in this. Chicago becomes the Rainy City, as most of the action takes place in a downpour. Lambert plays a typical bitter detective who is still grieving the loss of his son in an accident. The character has been done before, but Lambert shows some very good emotions and his character is smart, not just running around blowing things up. This might be because Lambert also coproduced and cowrote this, giving himself plenty of moments.
He also gives himself plenty of leaps in logic, as his Cajun cop singlehandedly solves the case as if by divine intervention. He comes up with breaks in the case by concentrating and pacing, reading magazines, and making change for a coworker. The film is about twenty minutes too long, and the finale involves putting a newborn baby in peril that represents one of the lowest points in serial killer cinema next to Hannibal Lecter feeding the little girl a "snack" on the plane.
This film is unrelentingly dark, and this works for most of the film. The gore is very heavy and very disturbing, and the film is suspenseful in the way "Seven" was.
