Storyline

Filled with heart, humor, and wit, WAR ROOM follows Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, a couple who seemingly have it all-great jobs, a beautiful daughter, their dream home. But appearances can be deceiving. In reality, their marriage has become a war zone and their daughter is collateral damage. With guidance from Miss Clara, an older, wiser woman, Elizabeth discovers she can start fighting for her family instead of against them. As the power of prayer and Elizabeth's newly energized faith transform her life, will Tony join the fight and become the man he knows he needs to be? Together, their real enemy doesn't have a prayer.

Best Kendrick Brothers' Film
31 August 2015 | by dan-36192See all my reviews

The Kendrick brothers' movies get better each time and it has been fun to watch them progress. I'll admit I've gone and seen these movies because I could see the potential in their film making and I wanted to support the genre. I was not expecting too much progression, but I was very pleasantly surprised. This is their best film so far.

The production value, writing, and acting are better as a whole. The comedic lines were delivered well and got loud chuckles from the audience. There were a couples scenes that were a bit "off." One scene really didn't work (husband's dream sequence) and could have been cut, and the other (mugging) needed to be reworked as it turned out looking cheesy, but these two scenes accounted for about 2 minutes of the entire film. The audience clapped and added their "amens" throughout the movie.

This is a movie by Christians who pull no punches in sharing their faith and beliefs. Christians will love the movie, and hopefully non-Christians will consider the message. I applaud the Kendrick brothers' evolution and am looking forward to their next movies.
