The story revolves around Kevin Parson (played by Marc Blucas First Daughter, TVs Buffy the Vampire Slayer), a seminary student, who receives a mysterious call demanding that he confess his sins in three minutes or be killed. Parson narrowly escapes death and the mystery begins to unravel. Detective Jennifer Peters (played by Justine Waddell, The Fall, TVs The Mystery of Natalie Wood) is brought on the case and has had a similar experience, with the same mysterious caller that ends in the murder of her brother.
The story twists and turns as Parson and Peters put the pieces together and try to figure out the connection of their two experiences while tracking the serial killer. Henson has done a credible job pacing this thriller, and the creepy look and feel of the film evokes memories of the X-Files in its heyday. Priscilla Barnes (TVs Threes Company) steals the show as Parsons creepy Aunt Belinda.
Thr3e deals with the theme of mans battle within himself, between good and evil with the soul suspended in between. I agree with the films conclusion that only God can solve this problem. However, I disagree with the notion that the soul is suspended in between the two opposing sides. The Bible clearly teaches that within ourselves the soul is so marred by evil that it can only be redeemed through Gods intervening and transforming grace (Romans 3:21-31; Ephesians 2:8-10).
Overall, Thr3e is more than just another cut-and-paste thriller. There is enough freshness and believable acting to keep the viewer entertained to the closing credits. As an added bonus, the viewer will be left pondering some very important questions concerning the human souls dealings with good and evil - despite some of the theological shortcomings in the films handling of this topic.
Thr3e is produced by Hollywood veteran Ralph Winter (The X-Men Trilogy, Fantastic 4) who happens to be a professing Christian. Winter is heading up the newly formed movie company FoxFaith (The Visitation, The Hangmans Curse), a division of 20th Century Fox, which is geared to tap into the newly-noticed buying demographic known as Evangelicals. The success of Passion of the Christ and the Chronicles of Narnia woke up the film industry to the fact that there is a potential market for spiritually-based themes. I pray for Ralph Winters success in bringing credible spiritually-themed films to the local multiplex and movie rental store. Thr3e is a step in the right direction. Todd Burgett

This was a very unique movie, I actually have a copy of this in my library. I was intrigued by this, because I have seen a sample of Christian movies, but many I've seen do not involve the thriller element and so the concept in itself made me curious.
Thr3e is about a seminary student by the name of Kevin Parsons who after finishing up a school day starts driving home when his phone rings. When he answers the phone an unfamiliar voice threatens him and after getting out of the car in a panic the vehicle explodes. Police tell him that he may have encountered a serial killer known as "the riddle Killer" and he is the only one out of all the others to survive_ but why? Why does this unknown man threaten him, keeps demanding for him to "tell the truth", and how does he know him?
I honestly did not expect for the ending to turn out exactly as it did. It's a bit scary in how evil can be so unique yet so familiar at the same time. Overall I liked watching this and hopefully those who read this also enjoyed the novel too. It could have been a little less weird though with "Princess", I get the idea she was a bad Auntie, but yeah weird stuff like that kind of reminds me of some of the mainstream horror films out there and as a personal preference I'm not much of a fan of those. I also think maybe the antagonist said the word "Puke" a little too often, I mean I understand it's a Christian movie and those avoid swear words for good reason of course, but there are other insults that could have been used; unless that was how Dekker originally wrote it then it's good to be realistic to the book I suppose. I also liked how there is a bible study guide attached to the inside of the movie relating to anger and the flesh.
Water Of Life Ministries3 Stars Out Of 5September 22, 2010Water Of Life MinistriesThe Thr3ee dvd tends to be a bit confusing at the beginning but eventually allows the viewer to descifer the content. Has an interesting end and one that viewers will be surprised at.

The movie did not come through for me. Maybe I will have to try his books, books are usually better where ones imagination will take over for what is left out of the movie.
