Not Easily Broken
5 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

People should judge this movie on it's message and not their own personal beliefs. The message of the story was to remain faithful in a marriage, to keep God central in it, to be strong enough to say you were wrong and strong enough to walk away from those who give wrong counsel regardless of who they are. It doesn't mean you don't love the person. It also shows how to get proper counsel or at least to be strong enough to seek it out.

As for violence etc. what do people think the real world is like ? People do not live wrapped in cotton wool, not exposed to the hardships and wrongs in this world. If people are not exposed to that which is bad and wrong, how then can they recognise something right and good? I am proud to call myself a Christian however I live in the real world and know it's not all sanitised. Some people should travel outside their own little world. I have been exposed to the other side but I still know and love my maker! That stuff will not make someone go bad.

this movie shows real commitment and love. Highly recommended! Hope you enjoy it! Sorry for the rant but some reviews were not reviews they were used as an opportunity to preach. Enjoy the movie and judge for yourself! It's made to appeal to all and in a way the viewer does not feel preached to. Cheers
