In the future, there is a race of superhumans, the Heretics, but they have been enslaved by humanity, banned from earth and forced to fight earth's battle for interplanetary domination. Of course, not all the Heretics accept that, and some come back to earth to claim a piece of the pie, but are mostly forced to go into hiding in "The Below", the underground populated by human, subhuman, and apparently also superhuman scum. Earth has genetically engineered the Clerics, women with superhuman strength and the ability to see any number of futures to see which decision would fit their cause best - something that's of course indispensable in battle, and thus in the battle Clerics against Heretics, hundreds of Heretics have been killed and not one Cleric. But that's about to change with Jah (Sean-Michael Argo), a Heretic with powers that exceed those of normal Heretics, as he apparently can also see into the future, and thus it's not long before the first Cleric falls.

Samara (Seregon O'Dassey) has been a Cleric for too long, and the best of them all, but then in battle, she made one mistake, just one, which filled her conscience with guilt, which damaged her concentration and forced her superior Sholokov (Aaron Krygier) to let her go. But now he wants her back, because she truly is the best and probably the only one who will stand a chance against Jah - but Samara only becomes interested when she learns the Cleric killed by Jah was Gia (Brandi Mingle), her former girlfriend.

Down in "The Below", Samara has to think through many a battle scenario until she finds her way to Jah - but what she learns on the way to him isn't what she would have wanted to hear, that Jah was actually one of Sholokov's genetic experiments that has fled his lab and thus become a killing machine only due to Sholokov's doing. A killing machine with powers to match her own ...


Sure, Cleric was done on a very low budget, and when it comes to its limited locations and relative lack of spectacular special effects (at least compared to your usual science fiction fare), that becomes very obvious, too - but the film makes more than up for it by creating a rather fascinating world for itself which is based on a rather unique premise, uses the limited locations to their full advantage, combines atmospheric filmmaking with cool action sequences, and is carried by interesting characters played by a strong ensemble cast.

A pretty cool piece of genre filmmaking on a budget.
