For the most part, I've really liked the movies I've seen with David AR White (and Kevin Downes) since first seeing "The Moment After" and this movie is no exception. In fact, I thought that "In the Blink of an Eye" was one of his best movies.
I was a little put off the movie by some of the reviews that I read here, afraid that this movie might be shrinking back from declaring the Gospel. But in my opinion, "In the Blink of an Eye" does not hold back on proclaiming the Gospel boldly and directly at all.
I would highly recommend this movie to someone who is searching for the truth as well as to Christians. In fact, I plan on sharing it with Christian friends of mine.
One aspect that I thought was very good was that David AR White's real-life wife, Andrea Logan White, played his wife in the movie. So scenes with kissing were between husband and wife. It reminded me of Kirk Cameron in the Special Features of "Fireproof" saying that they flew his wife (Chelsea Noble) in to the set to do the kissing scenes with Kirk. This way, only a married couple would be kissing. I thought this was fabulous for Christian actors.
I won't repeat what has been said previously in other reviews about the story line. Also, I don't like to write "spoiler-type" reviews, but I will say one thing - so if you haven't seen the movie please don't read any further.
It was very interesting to me that you could tell the passage of time by his appearance in the mirror every morning. Then suddenly, you could also tell that there was a big change on one particular morning. I won't say anymore than that here.
I liked the film and think it would speak to young people who are attracted to rap music and the hip hop industry. It attempts to show the darker side of the music business, without blaming everyone caught up in it. Some are pawns. It shows a clear witness of important Biblical topics (The importance of Israel in our day, accepting Christ sincerely, the imminence of His return). If followed closely, it is clear that (according to the story line) God is mercifully allowing a person to have a similar, but increasingly bad (and violent) dream, to draw him towards a decision of following Christ or his own worldly focus. Caution for some violence, but this is the only type movie some people caught up in the 'street life' would watch. Films like this and 'Hollow' are to reach them, not so much for the 'average' person. More power to Pureflix for reaching out. After viewing, a good Biblical discussion on the topics covered would be recommended.
