Storyline

Outcast by most of the children in the junior high school he attends, Tobey Marshall has been deeply traumatized by the death of his parents at the World Trade Center on 9/11. Living with his Uncle Nick and Jannah, Tobey is a loner who has created his own world where he believes he is protected by a guardian angel. A young girl named Suzy, whose own beliefs are in question, befriends Tobey and by doing so discovers that they have more in common than she ever expected. Suzy has captured the fancy of Jim Doder, a popular basketball player at school, who leads a double life as a gang leader in a series of local home burglaries. When Suzy rejects Jim's affections, and her relationship with Tobey continues, Jim makes life difficult for the both of them. After one of Doder's gang is arrested in a botched burglary attempt, Tobey is framed. In the dramatic and exciting climax, Tobey must prove his innocence to Suzy and the whole school by facing reality and confronting Jim Doder in public. Written by Robert Alaniz

No use of the "F" word
24 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

It's pretty easy to see where creator Robert Alaniz got his inspiration for Angels In Our Midst. This could have been an episode from Touched By An Angel only not as well done. The acting was pretty amateurish with one exception.

Young Ryan Soutzen lives with an uncle Gary Gow who's a two bit crook and a fence and has himself a gang like Fagin. Living with them is Katharine Trost who takes a personal interest in Soutzen, maybe the only one who actually cares about this kid who lost his parents in the World Trade Center and saw a vision of an angel.

Which has marked him as kind of strange and he's the target of bullies, mainly Matthew Vukovich. He's a part time star athlete, part time leader of the gang that Gow uses for home invasion robberies and full time bully. In fact Vukovich is the only one in the film that does a semblance of acting. He could have a career away from Christian films.

Bullying is something that Christian films occasionally address. But that's hard to do for them as the main reason kids are bullied is because they're perceived gay. Vukovich never uses the "F" word in his name calling of Soutzen and that's almost required in those situations.

It's strictly amateur hour with this film.
