New theme week and this week it’s action/adventure genre who gets the spotlight. And first film out is The Covenant.
Four boys belonging to a old family who came from England to America to escape the witch trails. These boys possess a power that is addicting and can shorten their lives if they abuse the power and even more so after their 18th birthday when they ascend. While battling with typical teen stuff – being best in the swimming team, girls and jealousy within the group of these four boys. But there is a fifth power rising and the boys are trying to figure out who it is – when they do they have to fight it risk aging before their time and die because of the power they have.
The film is good, storyline is great but somehow it felt a little boring at times. Like I’ve seen this before but this time with witches. Everyone using everyone to stop someone.
You see actors like Steven Strait, Laura Ramsey, Sebastian Stan, Taylor Kitch, Chace Crawford, Toby Hemingway and many more.
