Goofs

The day of his father's funeral, Lee removes his father's Illinois driver's license from the wallet. It's a color, plastic, photo ID with dad's picture, but in that year, Illinois Driver's licenses were a piece of paper with typing on it. No photo and not plastic. See more »

Surprisingly Good Movie
30 April 2017 | by guitarzxtSee all my reviews

Prepare yourself for this shock: This is a Christian movie, and it is ACTUALLY GOOD! I expected this movie to be like other Christian movies, with cookie-cutter black-and-white characters which portray atheists as awful and heartless people and the hero as someone who can do no wrong. This movie was not that way. The characters are real and the roles are acted really well. There are also no cheesy conversions like in a lot of Christian movies. Everything seemed authentic. This is actually a good movie. I'm not saying it was good for a Christian movie, it was actually a good movie as far as all movies are concerned.
