It Had Potential
6 September 2016 | by Seth_Rogue_OneSee all my reviews

It did indeed have potential, the acting was pretty good the characters are likable but it's just all very flat.

It's made by a company of which I believe is a religious film-company and everything is just extremely sugar-sweet, every single person in the movie is the kind that you could let borrow your dearest possessions and just know that you would get it back and in one piece.

Now that would be really nice if that was the type of world we all live in, I'm not saying it wouldn't but in my experience it's not real life.

Not that necessarily movies have to be exactly like real life but couldn't they have at least one bully in it or something? Or have him dealing with issues of trying to get a girlfriend or something. SOMETHING, anything to make us feel a little extra for the young man when he's trying to overcome his hardships.

Hardships that he instead seemingly takes with a smile.
