  • Theatrical Version
  • Unrated
Release: Mar 27, 2017 - Author: brainbug1602 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the Theatrical Version (PG-13) and the Unrated Version (both available on the US Blu-ray by Universal).

Dr. Ember has the ability to enter the mind of possessed people who are being held hostage in a dream world by some demon. When he manages to persuade the person that the entire thing is nothing but an illusion, the demon is being defeated. Hired by the Vatican, he is supposed to perform an exorcism on a boy who is possessed by some powerful demon. Normally, Ember would refuse an assignment like that but the demon is supposed to be very same demon that is rsposable for his wife's and son's death.

The Exorcist goes digital. Instead of holy water and the Bible, an exorcism is being performed with science now. The basically interesting idea lacks the thrill it needs to be entertaining during the entire time though. Nicely filmed and starring Aaron Eckhart as disillusioned exorcist who desperately seeks revenge, the relations to the further characters are simply missing. The audience does not get a lot of information about Ember's team. All they do is stare at some monitor and come up with some half-baked explanation regarding the scientific aspect of what Ember does when he gets into somebody's mind. Other than that, there are the usual demon horror elements such as an evil-looking little boy who throws his father underneath the ceiling. Occasionally, that is entertaining. But sometimes, it is rather lame and predictable. And sometimes, it looks like some trash flick. Fans of exorcism movies might risk taking a peek. For anyone else, I suggest a rewatch of The Exorcist.

In US movie theaters, a version rated PG-13 was shown. In the meantime, the so-called Unrated Version has been released on Blu-ray and DVD. Said version would probably have gotten an R because all the little alterations to make the result look less brutal and violent are rather obvious: Harsh swear words are missing, blood has been removed digitally and too brutal or suspenseful scenes are slightly cut. All in all, the differences are rather subtle and nothing that catches the eye instantaneously. That being said, one should obviously watch the Unnrated Version nonetheless.
