Gripping from beginning to end., 13 March 2007
Author: EVO2 from Philadelphia, PA

It's great to see a film that is driven by the basics. A good story, good acting, and good direction. This films has all three and a whole lot more. It's not hard to feel yourself in the main characters shore because you are wondering the same thing he is. WHO DID IT? (In my opinion that lends itself to good/smart writing- it's leaves it almost impossible for the audience NOT to identify with the protagonist.) Halfway throughout the film I tough I had figured it out... In the end I was wrong. Visually rich with a soundtrack the immediately establishes a character of it's own. I was surprised, impressed and moved by this film. If you've looking for a good film to see... If you're looking for a film with a great gospel soundtrack... If you've ever been to church.... take the time to see this movie.
