If “Charmed” was meant to make guys drool over the sexy and beautiful witches. The Covenant is the total opposite of that. Now finally the girls sit down and drool at the handsome guys and their withcraft powers while the guys job is to supply tissue, hold the popcorn and pass drinks whenever needed.
Haha… I sounds cruel? No, I don’t. Seriously… unless guys like watching other HOT guys. I mean… most of the guys I know just felt so physically challanged looking at other HOT guys. Started making remarks like.. “very HOT meh? handsome meh? I dunno why you all like the guy so much.. blah blah blah”. Well… I still can never understand why guys drool over Jennifer Love Hewitt or Jessica Alba so yeah… woman are hard to understand, so are guys.
Back to the movie ,The title of the movie refers to five families, The Putnums, Danvers, Perrys, Sims and Garvins which untold powers who form the covenant of silence. One of the famiy wants more and was banished with their bloodline disappear without a trace.
The Covenant starts of with a very fast pace music and fast montage opening. Some might complain it goes too fast no one understand what it was trying to tell… but well, it’s fast but they kinda repeated the same images for many times. So if you see clearly, it’s basically telling about how the witches community was killed during the witch hunt. Stuffs that happen in the Ipswich Colony back then and images from the Book of Damnation.
Right after that, they started with a very cool start trick with the four sons of Ipswich, Caleb Danvers (Steven Strait), Pogue Parry (Taylor Kitsch), Tyler Sims (Chace Crawford) and Reid Garwin (Toby Hemingway) jumping or I should say floating off a cliff to join the other people at a party.
At the party, Caleb and Reid sort of spot on this new girl, Sarah Wenham (Laura Remsey) who just joined the Spenser Academy. Sarah was then introduced to them by Pogue’s girlfriend Kate (Jessica Lucas). When the cops was here to bust the party, the guys once again use their power to free themselves. The four combined power to make the car float off the cliff. I just love how they say “Harry Potter can kiss my ass.”
Everything was cool until one of the students was found dead at the party place. Caleb starts having nightmares that woke him out of sleep. He started to worry and gather the others. Caleb started suspecting Reid for overusing his powers which leads them to fight against each other. Apparently, the powers are addictive, the more they use it, the more it weakens and age them.
The sweetest part is, Caleb’s power still has the potential to grow. Which is when he is 18, his power will mature and he have greater powers than the rest. Unknown to them, all the problem appears to be the work of the fifth family of the Ipswich Colony.
Right, he is back and he wants more. He wants to seek revenge, wants to have more power. That’s because the power has got him so addicted. Caleb was the main target since his birthday was soon and the fifth “son of Ipswich” wants him power badly. The best way to get to him was through his friends and Sarah.
I love how the movie uses the soft way of slipping in messages about one battling one’s evilness against drugs. The powers are like drugs. It’s powerful, addictive.. but the more we use it the more it weakens us and kills our body. I totally love the effects of the car breaking apart and sticking back together. I totally love the scenes, the Danvers house but I somehow think the fights were a little “street fighter” style.
I know many people sort of have high hopes since it was from the producers of “Underworld”. But hey, this is a rather low budget movie.. with all new stars… I think it was a pretty much movie considering the budget and the new stars. Obviously they could have done better. But I think it was good enough for a start.
And yes, they gathered 4 handsome guys together… now that is eye candy and additional points. Oh yes, by the way… it’s not any horror movie. It’s a mixture of a little action and a little thriller. So… yes, I want to see more! I want more… I hope they come out with a part two *drool*
