They did a lot of talk about Christianity, but I couldn't find one who actually portrayed being a Christian AND upheld Christian values. There was too much emphasis on sex, and lines were crossed. Not acceptable at all for a Christian movie. And it ended very darkly and disturbing. I recorded it on my DVR but had to delete it rather than let my child watch it as we had planned because it is definitely not a family friendly movie. I did not find it uplifting at all.
Overall my wife and I enjoyed this movie. It is well done with a strong message and even presentation of the Gospel message.
However, despite it's "no sex before marriage" message, the Christian in the movie is a pretty bad example to Believers and young people especially. Without ruining the plot, the Christian woman in the movie seems to do everything except the very act of sex, and then her conscience seems to kick in when it went too far.
No emphasis on purity of any kind.
The unbeliever guy in the movie is a better example than she is. Otherwise nice movie with some action, surprises and a good overall message but could have been a lot better in showing real purity and how a Christian should approach relationships.
I was disappointed in the quality of this movie. The acting was not good. I think they could have done a better job of getting their message across. The ending was not well developed which to me hindered the message they were trying to get across. I wish I had rented it first before buying.
Unfortunately, I felt that the purpose of the film was lost through the in-depth detail surrounding the sex before marriage issue. As a family based film, the message could have been dealt with without such blatant detail. The film was supposed to be about forgiveness not about his need/desire for sex.
Intriguing plot for sure, but a somewhat awkward finale. Some scenes seemed professional, some seemed amateurish. I liked the "messiness" of the plot, though hopefully some of the very foolish decisions made by even the lead Christian in the movie will not be misinterpreted by viewers as "permission" to try the same unbiblical practices. I guess the bottom line would be: in a broken world people will do stupid things--Christians included--and there is both God's grace but also consequences. I remarked to my teen daughter as we watched, "Now when a guy says this to you, you don't do what this gal does, right?"
