A dozen different souls, all moving in different directions, all longing for something more. As their lives unexpectedly intersect, they each are about to discover there is power in the Cross of Christ, even if they don't yet believe it. When a local pastor is shaken to the core by the visible faith of an old street corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a faith-fueled journey that powerfully impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate. More than a movie, it's a question we all must answer in our lifetimes: DO YOU BELIEVE?Written by

I took my wife to see this on or little getaway this week. It was a pretty well made movie. In my opinion it was much better than God's Not Dead. The characters, the plot lines, and the acting were all more relatable in this film. So I wouldn't tell people who didn't like God's Not Dead to write this one off.
Don't get me wrong, the film had it's faults. Some of the character's story lines were kind of silly. However, the acting made up for the bad writing in some parts, especially in the case of Brian Bosworth (Joe) and Makenzie Moss (Lily). These two stole every scene they were in. Kudos to them.
While I went in expecting the film to be a Crash-like film, I didn't expect the climax to be pretty much exactly the same. It still worked, and it was well made. But the fact that it was basically a remake of that climax kind of stole a little of the thunder for me.
I've seen 3 or 4 Pureflix films now, and I've noticed two things:
1. They have a knack for finding amazing child actors. The children they cast in this film and Christmas Angel all pretty much stole the show.
2. The other films are all better than God's Not Dead. It's puzzles me to know that film has been their biggest financial success when watching some of their other films.
At the end of the day, I don't think this film will convert anyone or change any lives, but it's a good film to watch with the family (it might be a little too much for the younger kids). If you're not Christian, watch it as a curiosity and be aware of that it's a Christian film going in. It's not as preposterous as God's Not Dead, and it's a pretty impressive film for it's low budget.
