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.

Goofs

When in the War Room, there is a soldier with a patch of the 25th Infantry Division, and of the 3rd Infantry Division. It is not possible for someone to be attached to two divisions at once. Not to mention that the 3rd Infantry Division did not take part in the Vietnam War. However, the right shoulder signifies Wartime service. Those soldiers who are combat veterans are authorized permanent wear of the SSI of the unit they fought with on their right shoulder. This shoulder sleeve insignia recognizes "former wartime service" and is frequently called a "combat patch". Per Army Regulation 670-1, a soldier is authorized to wear the SSI of their higher headquarters. This is not dependent on whether or not the higher headquarters deployed, or to whom the soldier was attached throughout his/her deployment. The 3rd (Marne) Division did serve (with distinction) during WWI and WWII and also during the Korean Conflict ... See more »

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.
