Awesome Family Friendly Movie and NOT Boring
17 January 2007 | by (Bahamas) – See all my reviews

This movie really restored my hope for Christian/faith based movies. The modern spin on an OLD story made the movie even more believable. For once the writing was INTELLIGENT and the acting MORE than Bearable. The acting was ACTUALLY good. Man I am so happy that I got a chance to watch this hidden treasure of cinematic Christian splendor. This story of Joseph was told in a way that I would have never thought and it proved more relevant because of it. No, it is not the latest movie but stand this next to big movie releases like The Gospel and Joseph's Gift makes the others look like they are unsaved. Great work by the entire production and writing team. The Father is well pleased!
