In all then, I would recommend this movie to all families and particularly younger children with vibrant and active imaginations. There’s something about the dragon, and its relationship to the heroes of the story, that invokes a certain sense of creative magic and wonder.

I’m not inclined to see a sequel, and honestly, I kind of wish I had seen Pete’s Dragon instead. But, what can you do. If you’re interested in heavy action, but not intricate plot with the possibility of being killed all the time then go for this one. Even the most harrowing moment just seemed, disconnected. It was if all the psychology of the movie was disconnected from each other and we were just kind of watching a side show.
Okay, so I had read pretty much ZERO about Deliver Us From Evil before I went. I had no idea what the movie was even about. I don’t know how much of the movie is spoiled when I state that it’s about an exorcism. I should’ve guessed this I suppose when the title is “Deliver Us From Evil” (duh, Asher). What’s up with the exorcisms?
