Bad all around. Full of religious agenda. Stay away!
4 February 2015 | by See all my reviews

If you can't tell from the majority of the other reviews, the largely positive score this film has on IMDb is totally bunk. I'm convinced that the people involved in the production of this flop are responsible. If you take anything away from the following review, let it be this: the movie was dreadful and you should stay away.

As a huge Disney fan, I was extremely disappointed. The acting was horrible, the directing was dreadful, and the film ends without showing any of Walt's successes after going to California. It more or less leaves the "plot" of this biopic falling sinfully short. But with how utterly bad this movie is, it's probably a kindness that it ends so abruptly.

I'd also like to address the Christian agenda of this film. They blatantly and unapologetically use any excuse to insert messages of faith throughout this entire catastrophe. I'm not talking about once or twice, either. It permeates the whole film.

I have absolutely no issue with Christianity or people having faith. However, the attempt at cramming a Christian message inappropriately throughout the entire movie was distracting and far too excessive. Frankly, instead of inspiring me I was left incredibly uncomfortable - not because it was a religious message - but because of how forced it felt.

Coincidentally the only "professional" review (also mysteriously positive) was from a Christian review site.

Be you an avid Disney fan or someone merely curious about the life of an amazing man, I would hold out until the Walt Disney Corporation itself does a proper biopic. Stay as far away as possible from this lemon. You'll be doing yourself a favor.
