In the scene where Sarah is in the library, Kate comes and leans on the table next to her. When we first see her close up, her ponytail is dangling by her head, it zooms out and the ponytail is on her back, again it zooms in and is in front of her face, zooms back out and it's on her back again.

The Idea had potential
8 September 2006 | by wimdallSee all my reviews

The idea of the movie was better than the movie itself, I thought. It did have potential, but didn't really embrace it as much as it should have. Basically, it's about four warlocks who are descent from four families from the 17th century who were able to harness the power of witchcraft. But when a fifth one shows up, stronger than all of them and seeking the power of the others, they must stop him before he kills them and everyone they care about. Think Underworld meets Highlander, and that's the basic mood of the movie. It's easy to think of this as an Underworld knock off, but it was actually better than that. The plot is predictable, and drags at times, and there is almost no character development. A lot of interesting subplots are touched upon, but never really explored, and the way they ended it, they obviously want sequels. Check it out, there's some pretty cool action scenes and an interesting story to back it up, but don't count on being blown away.
