A bit misleading...
4 May 2004 | by logic11See all my reviews

I didn't like this movie at all. For starters, the dialog was strained and unrealistic for teenagers. The main reason though, the whole thing is based on a novel by Frank Peretti, a christian propagandist author. This shows up repeatedly in the movie, from a football player asking the lead female "Do you believe in the hereafter?" to repeated prayer references. I am mostly writing this review so that people renting this film will be aware of the religious subtext without having to subjagate themselves to it.

The actual storyline was alright and the acting wasn't too bad, except for Mr. Peretti himself, he plays a scientist named algernon (an obvious reference to the brilliant science fiction novel Flowers for Algernon) and his presence is pretty annoying.
