Movie Info

The film follows a single father, Tom Hawkins (Kevin O'Donnell) whose life is destroyed when his son is kidnapped and murdered. When informed by the FBI, led by agent Mike Sheehy (Naughton), that the homicide appears to be part of a string of crimes carried out by an enigmatic, religious sect, Tom decides to take matters into his own hands. Ultimately he is faced with a challenging moral decision: should he follow his religious beliefs and let the law take its course or continue to seek revenge and hope God will show him forgiveness?

Critic Reviews for The Word

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3) | Rotten (5)

  • However unintentional, the film does prompt an analysis of the costs and benefits of vigilantism.

    Dec 23, 2014 | Full Review…
  • "The Word" is never boring, though that has as much to do with the mounting absurdities and ripe acting as it does with the resourceful use of crosscutting by the director, Gregory W. Friedle.

    Aug 14, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Attempts to offer the white-knuckle gratifications of a studio procedural with a conspicuous lack of production values, screen talent, plausibility, originality, or a lick of aesthetic flair.

    Aug 12, 2014 | Full Review…
  • A basic cheapness, both of intent and execution, pervades this thriller queasily centered around a child's kidnapping and murder.

    Aug 15, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Scenes in The Word all too frequently consist of characters telling each other in great detail things we've just seen in the previous scenes, sometimes in the exact same language.
