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.

Did You Know?


The building used as Claras house was one that they came across just two weeks before starting. It was owned by a Pastor who let them rent it for a month. He had been trying to sell it for 9 months, but hadn't had much luck. He was very gracious to them, so they prayed that GOD would sell it for him. Amazingly, the day they finished shooting, a couple showed up, fell in love with the house, made an offer and it sold. See more »


The mask Tony uses when washing his wife's feet is a dust mask and would be useless to protect him from the odor of her feet. But once her feet are in the bucket of water there would be no odor issue anyway. See more »


Miss Clara: My question to you is this. In light of all these wrongs, does God still love Tony?
Elizabeth Jordan: We both know he does.
Miss Clara: Do you?
Elizabeth Jordan: Now, Miss Clara, you're meddling. There's love in my heart for Tony, but it's just buried under a lot of frustration.
Miss Clara: So he needs grace.
Elizabeth Jordan: Grace? I don't know that he deserve grace.
Miss Clara: Do you deserve grace?
Elizabeth Jordan: Miss Clara, you have a habit of backing me up in a corner and making me squirm.
Miss Clara: I felt the same way. But the question still remains. Do you deserve grace?

It's target audience, should be more than pleased.

'WAR ROOM': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

Another Christian drama flick, from the 'Kendrick Brothers'; the team that's also responsible for such previous 'worship-themed' films as 'FIREPROOF' and 'COURAGEOUS'. Alex Kendrick directed and co-wrote the movie, and Stephen Kendrick co-wrote and co-produced it. The story revolves around a couple, that turns to God; to fix their struggling marriage, with the help of an older, wiser, woman (named Miss Clara). The film was made on a budget of just $3 million, and it stars a cast of mostly unknown actors. I think it's a fairly decent Christian movie; compared to other, much worse, ones (I've seen recently).

Tony (T.C. Starling) and Elizabeth Jordan (Priscilla Shirer) seem to have it all; a nice house, two great jobs, and a polite young daughter (Alena Pitts). The couple are not happily married though, and their daughter feels resented. When Elizabeth, a realtor, attempts to sell a house, for a nice (older) lady, named Miss Clara (Karen Ambercrombie), she's inspired to renew her faith again. By doing so, Elizabeth also finds the courage to fix her troubled marriage; and save her struggling family.

The movie is filled with some cheesy dialogue, and bad acting (at times); but it also has a few good performances, and some inspiring moments (especially for those of faith). The low-budget shows, and it does feel (a lot) like a TV movie; but the film is still better than other Christian-themed flicks (that I've seen, in the past few years). It has a good message, and it's at least somewhat inspiring. Probably not something that will interest non-believers (at all); but it's target audience, should be more than pleased.
