Storyline

An unforgiving sun, a parched earth, and a failed economy have left a small Texas town desolate. For ten years Promise, Texas has known nothing but one curse after another. It's barren, broken, and dying, leaving a town full of despair. When a couple finds a boy walking along a dusty road, alone in the middle of nowhere, with nothing but a mat tucked under his arm, they pick him up in hopes of helping him. What they don't realize is that he has come to help them and the residents of Promise. No one knows who he is or where he came from. Some think he's an answer to prayer. Others think he's a runaway or a false prophet. And the only thing this boy will say about himself is that he's here to help. The town's sheriff, Brody, is determined to uncover the truth. But Brody has his own problems trying to hold a dying town together. Miracle after miracle takes place and the residents of Promise embrace the boy. But when the beloved town doctor dies, it is time for the truth to be revealed. ... Written by Mike Norris

Okay, admittedly ten out of ten might be a little much, but let me explain myself. Subjectively I enjoyed pretty much everything about this movie and was very surprised to see how low the rating was. Objectively, sure there are some moments where the acting might have been a little off, or where the shot could have been done better, but this isn't a multi-million dollar film we're talking about either. I am Gabriel is a nice, heartwarming, family movie that leaves you feeling good. What more can you ask for? I was appalled that this movie was rated at the same level as films such as 'The Room' and 'Troll'; movies that are so much worse than this film could ever be. Because of this, I gave the movie a ten. It deserves a watch, and a much better rating than it has gotten.
