Trivia

Renny Harlin is known for putting tidbits of Finnish culture in his movies. In The Covenant he has hung a famous Finnish painting on Sarah's wall. It is painted by Hugo Simberg and it's called "Haavoittunut enkeli" ("Wounded Angel"). It has an angel in it and there are two boys carrying her away. See more »

Goofs

Chase tells Pogue and Caleb that he heard they were swimmers while the pair are playing foosball at Nicky's, but his mouth doesn't quite match up to the words, almost as if he's yelling it and then it was voiced over. See more »

Mindless, but Fun
9 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Anyone who expected this movie to be an amazing, intelligent film will be severely disappointed. However, from the trailer, I made a guess as to the general quality of the film. I was right, and I enjoyed myself.

Hot guys who do magic. That's pretty much all you need to know about the movie. The dialogue is crap, most of the acting is so-so, characters are woefully underdeveloped, and the plot is flimsy at best. That said, it was a fun movie. There was exciting action, and lots of fan service for the girls in the audience (Don't worry boys, there are girls in dubious sleepwear, too) It's one of those movies where you sit and watch and say, "This is a really good idea, but even *I* could write a better movie than this." The concept is cool, the execution not-so-hot. But as a break from the grind of class? Definitely good.

The action was cool. The boys were pretty. And, really, what more does a girl need?
