Not really bad, not really good.
20 April 2019 | by ilikeweirdstuffsSee all my reviews

In descending order of goodness: -The camerawork and general cinematography was really nice at times reminding me of much higher budget movies. -The concept was a good one. -The dramaturgy was fine and provided for some thrills and twists even if some of them ver really predictable. -The music used was good, but at times unfitting and always too loud. -The acting had it's moments from everyone involved, but also really bad moments from everyone involved. Decent effort, needs improvement. -The audio editing was not good. It wasn't quite as atrocious as other low profile movies, but bad enough to put this in the student movie category. -The story.... was atrocious. It left me with a 'damn this was awful' feeling, even though the whole thing wasn't really bad as a whole. The constant cringy dialogue and events and the super hamfisted religious bits... ugh

All in all if A movies are blockbusters, B aresmaller budget hollywood movies, C are direct to video, comedies, and arthouse, and series tie ins, and D are student films, this is a D movie. I hesitated between giving this a 4 or a 5, but eventually, it wasn't that bad, and it did some things right, the whole story just left one feeling profoundly unfulfilled and nonsensical and the ending didn't help much at all. It felt a bit like some american bible belt fantasy. If that kid was not jesus2.0 then he shouldn't have been acting like this much of a messiah figure. Nice effort, with lots of good bits, but could've been handled a lot better, with more believable characters especially the main father son duo, and a less shallow preachy plot
