This is a great "feel good" movie - but there's no real gospel here!! The subtitle, "Based on the Conversion of Paul," is misleading. Paul had an encounter with Jesus Christ. The main character in this movie simply had a near death experience, heard a voice (we're not told whose), and decided he needed to make some changes in his life. Jesus is never even mentioned in this film!! Yes, there is the need to "do what's right" and to "make things right" but when you omit the grace of God and the transforming power of (and the need for) faith in Jesus Christ, you're simply left with a damning works-righteousness. I'm the librarian for our church - this movie will NOT be added to our library!
I thought this movie was really good with good acting and a good plot. I just wish they had made the gospel more clear in the film. There were references to church and the Bible, but that's about it. Still, a good film for Christians to watch!
I watched this movie last night and thought it was great. The acting at times seemed a little bit forced but the story of the movie was great. This movie shows that true repentance is more than just saying your sorry.
Oh my goodness they call this a Christian film. This movie was horrible, I could always get past the acting but the writing was not good at all. This movie had nothing to do with Jesus; anyone could change their life with hard work and a strong will. No mention of surrendering your life to Christ and the Lord working on the inside. I was really upset at this movie it had potential but at the end it was just a movie about a boy with a near death experience and deciding to change his life...no scriptures or talk about Christ...this movie could be on the ABC family channel, nothing special about it, I'm throwing mines away.....
