The Encounter (2010)
This would make a really powerful church play...
This would make a really powerful church play, but as a film, the script lacks any kind of subtly or artistry. The characters could be described as cliché, but I would describe them as representational. The writer's intent is obviously to appeal to a breadth of hurting people. The performances, although not brilliant, are sincere. Bruce Marchiano did not convince me he was Jesus, but he did convince me that Jesus is loving, caring and passionately wants to be involved in our lives. Jaci Velasquez was the most subtle and surprising. I would not watch this movie expecting to be entertained, but my hope is that you would be uplifted!
I have to give the movie six stars for it's truth and sincerity.
