Good
7 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I liked the movie. It was pretty good, showing redemption and how one can be lifted out of adversity. I liked the acting although Zulu's love interest was a bit 2 dimensional. My parents and brother watched it and said that they were glad it wasn't too preachy and that they could actually watch it.

The premise of two brothers reconciling to each other was in fact something I can relate to. Also, Sisters Marcie and Emma were two dazzling women who reminded me of the Greek Chorus who would be the voice of reason and have the hero or heroine think about their actions. I considered it a great nod to reconciliation (as the Corinthian church needed) as well as drawing people to the church even if it weren't for the right reasons, those people will weed themselves out over time.

A+++ really good, believable characters and I loved the singing. Also, Chester though he didn't speak was a character in his own right. I think that Gospel plays are increasing the number of silent characters in their plays (I don't know why) also the part with Eartha Kitt saying: I haven't had sex since 1972 and Te saying "me and you after rehearsal" was in character for him, and I wouldn't nod to it as offensive.
