Deception, greed and a deadly lust for power lie at the heart of a sinister organization in this intriguing thriller based on the novel by best-selling author Robert Whitlow. Starring Malcolm McDowell (TV’s War and Peace), Chuck Carrington (TV’s JAG), Hilarie Burton (TV’s One Tree Hill) and Will Patton (A Mighty Heart), The List is a heart-racing tale of suspense and betrayal, in a dark world of blood oaths that bind generations.
Returning home for his father’s funeral, Renny Jacobson (Carrington) discovers he’s the inheritor of his family’s chair in a secret society founded during the Civil War. But Renny suspects there’s more to the society’s activities than meets the eye, and when his inquiries into the group’s true nature are discovered by its corrupt leader (McDowell), Renny becomes the target of a dark and mysterious force with the power to destroy everything — and everyone — he loves.

I thought the movie was well done: good acting and filming; however, I thought the story (at least in this movie version) was anticlimactic. The conflict builds as the tension and spiritual warfare mount, then with the drawing of a cross on a window and an angry declaration, the conflict is over and everyone lives happily ever after. I had more lofty imaginations that included the demise of the cult and a more resounding, spiritually-powerful victory that focused on personal redemption and the blood of Christ overcoming the blood covenant of this cult. In summary, it was interesting, but disappointing. There are much better, more satisfying Christian films out there.
