Could have been better
4 February 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am Catholic and I have heard about Medjougorje for a long time. I thought this film could have been a lot better. Martin Sheen and Michael York did as good as they could given the weak script.

Morgan Fairchild's character did not add anything to the story. Some of the acting by the extras was so bad it was laughable. The story was a worthwhile story to be made into a film but this was a failure, though not a complete one. The courtroom scenes were the most compelling part of the film. This film was a U.S.-Croation production. I think it would have been better if it was a Croation production with Croation actors speaking the language with subtitles. And of course a better script

would have been good. The other thing the film should have mentioned but did not was that the supposed apparitions of the Virgin Mary at Medjougorje has not been approved by the Catholic Church and is still under investigation.
