The Most Uninspired Thing I've Ever Watched
26 July 2013 | by (Georgia, US) – See all my reviews

My grandmother and I grabbed this out of the $5 box at the store for a quick watch, and I really regret even spending that on it. There's no direction to the film. It rambles with pointless slow moving scenes, and interactions between characters are anti-climatic and uninspired, in part because the characters have no depth or believably, but also because the camera angles are set randomly without any regard to the goal of the scene. I suppose you can't expect much from a low budget Christian film, but it could have been done better than that. This film shouldn't have even been made honestly. It unfortunately reinforces the reputation of the Christian film genre for being cheap and not believable. If you can't do something well, you ought not do it at all.
