A Cable Access Film
15 December 2014 | by (Charlotte, NC) – See all my reviews

Why oh why can't a Christian made/themed film also be a well done film??? I say this as a Christian. There's nothing wrong with a movie that promotes Christian values - I wish there were more - but why do they have to be either poorly made or so ridiculously over the top that it makes Christians sound like idiots.

It's really tempting to trash the film on all levels from the script to the directing to the acting but I won't do that.

Ironically the best part of the movie - which falsely claims itself to be a sports movie - is about two minutes of pitching. It's believable - the action not the acting/dialogue - and engaging. The flashes to the agent in the crowd are comically bad but the field shots are really good.

That's pretty much it other than the Casting Crowns performance which is great music but feels like a music video inserted into a movie. Not very effective. Frankly the whole film would have better served its intention of promoting Christ by making a Casting Crowns concert movie.

I'm sure everyone was very well intended - hence at least 3 stars - but Ring the Bell is at best a cable access channel movie.

Christianity is wonderful, beautiful, exciting, scary, humbling, powerful, amazing and more. Sadly NONE of that translates into this movie.

One day there will be great Christian movies. Today is not that day . . .
