Storyline

Jackson Stone is a reckless and troubled teen who rejects faith and the church as he blames God for everything bad in his life. At home, his seemingly uncaring parents ignore him, at school he's an outcast, and his only friend, Gunner, continues to pull him deeper and deeper into the abyss of trouble on the streets. Jackson struggles to come to terms with his fear of death, and his own mortality as he fights a life threatening illness. After a brush with the law, Jackson is sentenced to community service and placed under the watchful eye of Russell Tecumseh, a tough, streetwise pastor who operates a local homeless shelter. While at the shelter, Jackson forges an unlikely friendship with Nathan, a destitute homeless veteran, and as their friendship flourishes, they each learn important lessons about life, trust, and something neither have truly experienced... Friendship. As Jackson progresses towards faith, he begins to transform from a street hoodlum to a responsible young man, but ... Written by Daniel Lennnox

Even Jesus can't save this train wreck.
2 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another in a long line of heavy-handed Christian movies that feels like it has to cram Jesus down your throat, at the expense of good storytelling. Positives: cinematography is pretty good. Negatives: just about everything else. It's overacted. The writing is terrible (cliché, after cliché, after cliché). Too many distracting trick camera angles. The final product is worse than the worst Lifetime movie you can think of.

Maybe next time the investors will take that $500k they spent on the movie and use it to feed some hungry kids or something. Because this movie is doing far more harm than good.
