Storyline

Freshman university student Josh Wheaton attends a philosophy class, where Professor Radisson requires all students to submit a signed statement staying "God is dead" and never existed. When Josh refuses because of his own beliefs, the professor challenges him to defend his position, which leads to a series of confrontational presentations between himself and the professor, with the class as jury.

Goofs

The Chinese student Martin Yip spoke Cantonese on the phone to his father in China. The father spoke Mandarin. These are two entirely different and mutually unintelligible dialects. It's as if a son were speaking Spanish to his dad while dad replied only in Italian. See more »

Quotes

Josh Wheaton: I just keep thinking of that C.S. Lewis line, "Only a real risk can test the reality of a belief."
Kara: So, you're gonna risk our future over your yearbook quote?

Dishonest
17 May 2016 | by allstarrunnerSee all my reviews

I find it ironic that this is a Christian movie, purportedly filled with Christian morals - honestly, you would think, being one of them - and yet this film manages to be completely dishonest in nearly everything that it does.

I am a Christian, and this movie offended me just as much as I am sure it offended atheists. It is completely dishonest to portray atheists as terrible, villain-esqe people who can do no good because they don't know Jesus.

The bottom line is this movie was made for a Christian audience which is only interested in patting each other on the back that they're "the good guys" in God's eyes. It's laughable, and downright depressing (as a Christian), that other Christians actually think this movie might be some form of evangelism for non-Christians.
