Good try, but needs some editing
1 March 2010 | by See all my reviews

As a longtime dc talk and Kevin Max fan, I really, really wanted to like this film. "Christian movies" have long had a reputation for being very corny but I had hoped that this would be the exception.

The Imposter's message is an important one, but some of the scenes are so incredibly awkward to watch. Many of them go on for too long and could have benefited from cutting. At a couple points in the film, there were full music videos with the "Grand Design" band belting out their rock message. Were they really needed to show the angst and despair of the lead character, Johnny? I would say no and it would have made the film tighter and more focused.

I believe that Kevin Max did the best that he could with the script he was given. His acting is fine, but the voice overs are monotone and unnecessary. And the very, very numerous slow motion bits thrown in, add very little to the quality and emotional impact of the movie.

I want the The Imposter to do well, but just wish it could be re-edited so that the message of forgiveness and redemption would reach a broader audience.
