Turns out... this is a good movie!
2 March 2001 | by (Los Angeles, California) – See all my reviews

In 1999 Gener8xion Entertainment rocked Hollywood with the number one box-office hit for a limited release film with the Omega Code. While this was a giant leap for a Christian film production company, the film itself had its weaknesses. However, with this film, producer Matt Crouch is proving that Christians are not only a force to be reckoned with in ticket sales, but they can make a darn good movie in the process!

Carman: the Champion surprised me in every way. The stylistic approach to the editing and the music selection really helped keep the energy alive throughout the whole film. The photography was great, making the movie look really good. Patricia Manterola as Allia Hererra had a captivating performance and will, hopefully, go on to be an important actress from the Latino community.

The character development was surprisingly strong and good editing helped pick up the pace durning the moments where the story may have left a little to be desired.

Simply put, I was really drawn into this movie. When the time came for the fight at the end, I was really wound up and pulling for the hero. Good job, TBN Films and Gener8xion Entertainment! You really have done something you

can be proud of!
