After the daemon/boy kills the father, all that happen was that two paramedics came and collected the body, no questions asked. In real, the place would have been swarming by police since his death hardly was by natural cause. See more »
Serviceable, and not as bad as the critics are saying.
I'm a fan of Aaron Eckhart so that was my main draw to see Incarnate.
The good: The film doesn't insult you by explaining everything at once, it does this through the action and dialogue sequences which are OKAY. Aaron delivers a solid performance here, and so does David Mazouz, the kid that plays Bruce Wayne in the Gotham TV series. The story is moderately interesting and reminds me a bit of Inception.
The Meh/Bad: The directing is often a bit ham-fisted and clunky. The script wasn't particularly brilliant but was OKAY. Didn't care much for the cop-out ending although that's a minor complaint.
Bottom line is, don't expect a masterpiece or above average film. Its a nice film to kill an hour and a half with.
