David A.R. White,
Ethan Jenkins (Michael W. Smith) and Jake Sanders (introducing Jeff Obafemi Carr) are both passionate pastors who worship the same God from the same book--but that's where the similarity ends. White and well-to-do Ethan is comfortable in his music ministry at the media-savvy suburban mega-church, The Rock; Jake is a street smart African-American who ministers to the gang members, teen mothers, and drug addicts of the urban Second Chance. When they are suddenly thrown together in a tough neighborhood and forced to work side by side, Ethan discovers there is no boundary between the streets and the sanctuary. But can the faith these two men share overcome the prejudices that divide them to give themselves and a struggling urban church a second chance? Written by
"The Second Chance" is one of the best movies I have ever seen in a long time. The general story and message is absolutely amazing. At first, I was a little worried that it would flop, seeing as how a lot of Christian movies do. When I found out that it was playing near me, I made it a point to go see it. It was a breath of fresh air, as it wasn't one of those religious movies that "plays it safe" and is "extra clean." It took no fear in including some violence and language in order to get through. In fact, even Pastor Jake, himself swears a bit. The movie never ceases to pull at your heartstrings and get through to your head. Not only is it just an awesome movie, it has some great acting, directing, writing, music, etc. Speaking of music, Christian singer Michael W. Smith himself stars in this movie as Ethan Jenkins. He does quite well for his movie debut. But it's really Jeff Carr who shines throughout this film. However, the whole cast does a great job to put the message across. I strongly recommend "The Second Chance"!
