Magical mystery tour
7 December 2016 | by DoNotTrustImdbSee all my reviews

I have just finished watching this, and man I have not felt so warm and fuzzy inside as a Christian for a long time! Man they sell their message well, their songs just rock me to my Christian core, but I just kept feeling it was all kinda staged, not real just somewhat rehearsed, well you don't have to look to deep into them and the dirt comes to the surface. What I am trying say here is, they have talent, sing some powerful stuff, but hey as a Christian knows, it is the best story ever told (or sold), but we also know many will miss use it, and I think after finding some things out about them, they are a very believable package, but fake.

All up a good doco, makes you feel warm and fuzzy, even if you aren't a believer. Cult? yeah somewhat, but a wealthy one at that. Peace to all.

7/10 for me
