The misleadingly titled The Wrath of God is both compelling and disappointing. Told as a horror mystery, the long-awaited big reveal at the end reveals only what we've known all along, which has nothing to do with either God or the occult. The intrusive horror music throughout suggests supernatural underpinnings that never materialize. The biblical eye-for-an-eye citation and divine retribution are mentioned to justify the actions of a man seeking vengeance for the death of his family members, but the references only heighten the sense that a twisted human being has delusions of omnipotence. In the end, we learn that a grandiose man insisted on casting himself as a victim and blaming the blameless.
