I suppose that some reviewers don't appreciate satire, witty barbs, and (gasp) a Christian film that doesn't take itself too seriously! I, on the other hand, love this, have seen it twice, and also watched the commentary, which is very insightful. The acting is over-the-top at times, but again, this movie aims for more allegory than realism, and in my opinion works just right.
This was truly a good story. It was full of known actors and very well done. It was funny and thought provoking. My only problem was sometimes understanding the Australian accent of which I am not accustomed. It's witty, entertaining, and very well gets across the power of the enemy and the even greater power of the Lord. A very unique way to make an eternal impression. I loved it! I recommend this for adults, teens, and pre-teens. It was a great family movie.
The Overal idea was great...exposing the devil and all his deceptive plans. However, I felt the build up was somewhat weak many boring and fake scenes especially btwn the main character and his wife as well as the devil's lawyers.
The character of the devil was played really well.
