A main plot point of the film involves the problems Joey Ibanez faces as a 16-year-old delinquent.He is clearly far older than 16, having appeared 7 years earlier as a police officer in Big Night. His 2018 "ExploreTalent" modeling profile lists his age as 34, making him 32 at of the film's 2016 release date. At one point, his character says he doesn't plan to reach age 30. He was only 7 years younger than T.C. Stallings, who would become his adoptive father. See more »

Should've had a different title
13 December 2016 | by scottshirey-877-567866See all my reviews

God's Compass is basically a story about a woman who decides to take custody of a troubled juvenile to save him from jail and help him in the right direction. That's the only connection to the title I can think of. Everything else about a compass seemed awkward and without any practical application. But if you can forget about that, it was actually a good movie. It had a good story, good script, good acting, and a happy ending. Sometimes we don't know the reasons why we are led to make certain decisions. In this movie, Mrs. Waters eventually finds out why. Jazelle Foster and Joey Ibanez, (who do not appear on the front cover of the DVD) gave exceptional performances. I think that they both have a bright future in the entertainment industry.
