As a Christian I love to support faith based movies. I much as I wanted to like this movie. It just fell flat. First off the positives. The cinematography was quite nice and looked decent. That's all the positive things I need to say. Now the negative. But first let me just say something to everyone out there that believe this is an accurate depiction of life... IT'S NOT! This is a movie it's FANTASY! People, It's not even based on a true story. Which isn't a bad thing, but when trying to make a movie as "realistic" as possible at least TRY and make it believable. Anyway, my fist negative. The movie is boring... Listen, I love slow burn dramas. But so much of this movie could have been cut! The whole "romance" between Faith and Michael could have been cut out of the entire movie and nothing would have changed. It was also boring because I just didn't care for the characters. Instead of making Faith a good character, they just killed off her parents so you would feel bad for her. Because throughout the whole movie Faith doesn't do one thing bad. Not even joking. How is anyone going to relate to that? Second, way to many side story's. It was to the point where I was confused at what was even happening. Third, instead of just making a good movie with a great story line and characters. It was as if the filmmakers were like, "We want to make a film with a great message to people." And that's it. Just because you tell a good message doesn't mean it's good. For instance, what if a pastor was speaking at a church about wisdom. He may say great things, but talks for 2 hours long and doesn't put much energy into his speaking. That's what this movie feels like. Honestly, I feel bad for the director. He shouldn't be getting so much hate (which I just call the movie business and if you make a good film you wont get hate) The film just isn't very fluent, the acting is bad, the characters aren't well handled and the plot is just a generic Christian film fun fest.
