Loved this movie. Was not sure where it was going at first. Some necessary information at the beginning was missing but after watching it a second time I was able to enjoy it a little better. Beautiful spiritual message. Worth every penny and every minute.
Make sure to watch the behind the scenes. They really cap off the whole wonderful experience.
Very well done and special movie. I really liked the ay the main character struggled with his faith and reconciled with God in a natural and real way. This was not a typical phony Christian movie. But clearly showed how we sometimes wrestle with God.
This movie really surprised us! The acting is good quality. The film is good quality. The plot kept us wanting to know what will happen. The characters seem real and plausible.
I really like that the movie does not accredit God with the bad things that happen in this world. That impressed me. So many times Christian movies lie and say God causes people to be tempted, or God makes bad things happen to us. The bible clearly states that is not true. James 1:13 says When tempted, no one should say, "God is tempting me." For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone;. Also James 1:17 says Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. So, with that said I love that this movie does not teach something I have to counter, like most Christian media seems to do lately.
The movie is still thrilling even after seeing it a few times. My nine year old daughter and my 2 year old son were not scared by it, they were intrigued. But it is an adult movie that is suitable for most kids. Some kids may not know what to think about the scenes with a fire in it. But if you remain calm and reassure them, it will be fine.
I hope that Corbin Bernsen will do more movies with this faith theme. We really liked it because it was not a movie aimed at evangelizing but instead was a good movie with a theme of real life faith woven in. He did a superb job making this movie.
