Just A Bad Film
2 March 2016 | by See all my reviews

Hey folks, I can enjoy a good faith based film, but the key thing for me is the word "good." This film simply was not good. For me, a good film requires a good story and screenplay. This film's story could have been good, but the screenplay was terrible. The actors could have provided good performances, but their work was hobbled by the bad screenplay and bad direction.

Good faith based films are a welcomed respite from mindless foul language and just plain boring sex scenes that are so abundant in so many other films. This was just a poor attempt at making a faith based film.

Best wishes, Dave Wile
