Most Good Reviews were Written on Oct 20 & 21 2009
9 June 2017 | by seanholliszSee all my reviews

I saw this film and I had to make my friends watch so they can see what a real bad films is like. I saw all the good reviews this film had and then I saw they were written on October 20 & 21 and the reviewers only had reviewed THIS FILM so that told me that the filmmaker made up a bunch of accounts to help boost the appeal! When I bought this film the IMDb rating was 7.2 or higher. SIX MONTHS LATER that has been cut to 4.5 which I think is also too high.

Looking at the reviews one person that gave this movie "10 Stars" was the star "Matt Moore"

Now the reason why I hate this film is because it was terrible. Bad acting on top of a stupid plot.

I have nothing against Christian Values because I am one. I just hate it when I see jerks manipulation IMDb
