Don't be fooled by the title of this movie. There is hardly anything Wicked about it, other than the fact that people were tricked into watching it expecting a dark thriller horror and getting a weak teenage romance with paranormal undertones.
The movie is about a teenager, Robbie, who supposedly is the son of the devil and has telekinetic abilities. When he was 12 he supposedly killed another boy who was bullying him without even touching him. Fast forward 5 years and the guy (played by Jake Croker) is back in town and attending high school there. He soon rekindles a friendship he had with Heather who is the daughter of a local policeman played by Vinnie Jones. She was his friend when they were 12 and soon there is a romantic entanglement between the two of them. Unexplained deaths then start occurring of the people who crossed either Heather or Robbie and the policeman together with a defrocked priest played by Christian Slater are trying to solve the mystery of what is going on.
The good points of this movie are few if any. There is one twist in the story but it's not that difficult to figure out. The acting is not the worst out there but it's not great in any way or even decent for that matter. Vinnie Jones who is English and playing a police officer in an American town was an odd choice for the role though. There is a reference to him drinking a lot and yet we only see him have half a glass of wine throughout the whole film. The fact that no one reacts much when the unexplained deaths start happening is another odd thing about the movie. There is one scene where someone gets run over by a piece of farm equipment which shouldn't even be running as the engine was taken out of it. And yet everyone just goes on about their business as if it's a regular occurrence in their town.
So overall I wouldn't recommend this movie. It could have been engaging and entertaining but it's neither of those things. It's bland, mostly badly acted and forgettable. A 3 out of 10.
