A feel-good film. Why the negativity?
17 February 2006 | by ((Near) D/FW Airport, Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

Why is movie given such bad reviews? Why is a movie as nice as "The Gospel" considered bad by most users? Why is this movie given so much negative opinions? Why do so many movie people shun this film oh-so-much? Why are people even crazy enough to not even like this movie that is so nice, so uplifting, and so friendly that we Christians and many families come together to watch this highly-approved film? Why? Why? Why? Because people need a reality check. Because people need to watch more nice movies like this often. Because most people need better morals. Because people need better outlooks on movies as nice as these.

And guess what? I am not one of these unlucky persons that qualify!
