A good Christian movie
4 January 2011 | by pc_hallSee all my reviews

This is a low budget movie that looks a bit high budget. (if you can have such a thing). Its well produced & directed.

The acting is good. Randy Travis is not a great actor, but he did well for this part. At first, you think "Randy is a bit one dimensional", but then you realize the part he is playing. In fact, the more the movie progresses, the more depth he brings to it.

The stunts are of the highest quality, the message is timeless and it is well scripted.

One criticism is the length - its a bit too short. But then again, they say a good movie is made on the cutting room floor.

Well done to the producers.

More please !
