Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Heavy with unexplained symbolism, ghosts, angels, and other ethereal entities, this isn't quite as much of a mess as you might expect from a movie that the director disavowed. (Declan Dale is a pseudonym for Gee Malik Linton, who took his name off the movie.) The two competing plots -- the police investigation and the seemingly unconnected story about the Dominican teacher -- merge convincingly enough at the end. The real trouble here is that clichés and seen-it-before plotting follow the separate threads all the way through. A good Law & Order episode would outshine EXPOSED in both quality and originality.
