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.

Trivia

Like previous films by the Kendrick Brothers, it was originally planned to use a mostly white cast. But Alex began having dreams about a mostly African American cast, and soon believed that this was how God wanted them to do it. So they switched the main characters to be like in Alex's dreams. At first Sony was concerned about having a film with a mostly African American cast being produced by a white-led production company, worrying that it may not be respected by African Americans. But the Kendrick Brothers assured Sony that the main characters would be presented as a successful family that just had marital issues that they were working through, and not anything that would dishonor the race of any party involved. Interestingly the film was released only months after the Charleston Church Shooting. Those involved with the film believe that the timing was no coincidence. Affirm films said that if it had been told with a different race, it would've been a different movie. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Great Movie
1 September 2015 | by inczoSee all my reviews

War Room is a movie about prayer in people's lives. The Trailers don't really do this movie justice, I didn't feel excited by them. The movie is well produced and the cinematography is well done. Christian and/or faith based films have had the stigma of being poorly made (TV drama story, unfocused camera, bad acting, pushy message, etc) but War Room actually does all these things right. The brothers who directed this movie and others have vastly improved over the previous films. The actors portray people that the audience can relate with and situations that people face in everyday life. The sharp cinematography was more akin to Downton Abbey than some Hallmark Channel or Lifetime Movie. This film was only slightly cheesy a times, but given it's PG rating this may have been to add humor or some element the whole family could react to in some sections. War Room is definitely worth the price of admission and entertaining throughout.
