He Never Died Review
This is one of those movies that you thoroughly enjoy while you’re watching it, but afterwards you turn to your fellow movie-watcher, and go “Well, uhm, there’s that. What was that, by the way?” Henry Rollins definitely does a great job portraying someone who is socially inept, somewhat oddly cute, and definitely scary as hell once you realize that he has no compunctions about killing you because you’re quite literally nothing to him.
Its really hard to describe, especially keeping it spoiler free. Lets just say this is a enjoyable, slightly absurd movie that satisfies your inner urge for mindless violence. Its not one to watch if you’re expecting a deep plot or answers to life’s questions, nor does it have tons of action in it. It is unsettling and has the perfect amount of blood, guts, and gore with some scenes that’ll just make you squirm and go “Aww, man, that’s just…”
Overall, its worth the rental, and definitely re-watchable. It has a slight biblical tinge, but not enough to be off-putting to the Christian-inclined, at least no more so than the oddball movie Dogma (which I still remember somewhat fondly, even as I profess absolutely no desire to ever watch it again. Ever. LOL!) Click here to rent or buy He Never Died on Amazon.com
