Consensus: Slow, cheap-looking, and dull, Season of the Witch fails even as unintentional comedy.

Wesley Morris
Boston Globe

After a while, the movie tires of the witch business and trots out a plot twist that permits the effects department to spend money.

James Berardinelli

Cage is effective as a falling down drunk in Las Vegas or a treasure hunter navigating goofy road trips but not as a disillusioned champion of the Church going one-on-one with a demon. Steven Seagal would have been more believable.

Philadelphia Weekly

Cage merely stands around looking glum, letting his hair extensions do the acting for him.

Leah Rozen

Another forgettable trifle from Cage.

It's Centurion Deux without the second-coming-of-Carpenter pretense, though you still wish the trashiness were more distinctive.

Jeff Beck

The filmmakers try to use special effects to cover up the weaknesses of the story, but even on that point they fail pretty badly.

Rafer Guzman

Director Dominic Sena sets a quick pace; the dull moments are brightened by the unexpectedly likable team of Cage and Perlman.

Chicago Reader

Cage alternates between leaden line readings and thunderous outbursts, making his accomplished costars Ulrich Thomsen and Stephen Campbell Moore look even better. But the movie's worst aspect is the CGI, which packs no scares whatsoever.

Not the stinker that everyone says it is, but you do have to ignore its flaws in order to be entertained.

No actor has amassed a higher output of spotty choices than the reigning king of the paycheck film, Nicolas Cage. The man has a habit of appearing in mediocre… More

For some people, just having Nicholas Cage and his absurd deadpan delivery and ridiculous expressions in a historical movie is inherently entertaining. I'm… More

The first few minutes were pretty good, and basically any scene with the "black witch" was pretty cool. Other than that, however, this movie was just… More
