Cool story, mediocre execution, bankrupt message
3 February 2014 | by next_exodusSee all my reviews

I bought this film from a Christian bookstore thinking that it was a Christian film. The 5 "Dove" rating on the front is apparently only an indication of the quality of the content and not the quality of the message.

After watching the film, it was clear that the movie was not a Christian film. It was clean, but it only glorified humanism and the power of the human spirit. Not once is God even mentioned, and there is no mention of God being the source of the young boys talent. The "faith" mentioned in the film is so ambiguous its practically meaningless. All of the key messages in the film point to humanism and self empowerment. There is no mention of Jesus, not even a nod or an allusion, no scripture, nothing - not even a trite Christian cliché.

The whole child prodigy thing is great. Squeaky clean. The movie drags and meanders something awful. Decent acting in parts. Cute kids. Feel good message, but powerless.
