Trivia

Over 50 set-up shots were filmed in 1 day during the biggest scene in the movie. All of the actors had to perform and memorize close to 20 pages in 1 day. Yet they came through with flying colors, performing admirably and everyone still went home at 6 p.m. See more »

Right on the mark on certain issues
11 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A lot of people like the film who've I've spoken with. The film came out on DVD a couple weeks ago and it's right on the money on certain issues like gas prices and Wall Street.

Who could have imagined the chaos we are in these days? But this film really nails on the topics of greed and lack of human decency. It's almost scary reading the attacks on this film but then you realize the critics keep neglecting (or purposefully) exclude what the central point of the film: God.

All the other issues take a back seat to God. And that's what the film is driving at.

We're living in age where people would rather glamorize a serial killer film than give props to a film that attempts to prove God exists.
