beautiful movie
27 September 2011 | by (uk, london) – See all my reviews

The overall message that simple faith is more powerful than logic, personal ability, or the love of this world alone is one badly needed today by a self-worshiping, post-modern society that has become far too cynical & proud.

I really enjoyed this film. I saw it in the theaters in the U.S. and was so proud and overjoyed that a film like this could be made. It made me realize that God is in control of everybody's lives. You just have to trust Him. He is far greater than Satan and all the evil he puts in our lives. If you pray to Him (and believe in Him), he will help you. I heard this once... Satan is mighty over everything on earth, but God is almighty over everything!! Nothing is impossible to God. My faith has grown in 1 hour and and a half.
