I know that making a faith based film can not be the impossible feat it appears to be, and while Kirk Cameron remains a likable, if limited actor, he is lost on the big screen, but his talent fits television well, if your looking for a family time waster, I would suggest Cameron's remake of 'The computer wore tennis shoes" this is a dull mess.

I have never commented on a movie on line before. But reading some of the comments about this movie has ... compelled me to respond. Disclaimer first. I greatly admire Kirk Cameron. I admire his wife, and the family they have created through adoption and ... the traditional way. Some may say that does not matter in assessing this movie. I disagree. Because of the character of this man and his family, and the difficulty of making a positive family movie in this culture, I am willing to give him a huge amount of credit just for showing up. But I did not need any of that deference for this movie. I enjoyed it immensely. It was a clever story, well told and effectively acted. I think that Kirk Cameron is the kind of actor that makes the other less experienced actors around him better. Will this film win an Academy Award. Not likely. But that is not the type of film they set out to make. They tell you at the beginning.... get the popcorn and gather the whole family because this will be fun. And it was. Sorry some of the other commentatators did not see the same film I did. I am hoping for more films like this from Cameron and his friends.

I just watched it with a group of friends and one comment was "it kept me on the edge of my seat the whole time because I wanted to leave" . Another one was "I wonder if they use this as a torture device in the middle east" and "wow, this is my favorite part" (in reference to the final credits. It was so terrible we laughed. ... and cried

This was a very long boring movie, it didn't have no inspirational or faith involve, I think Kirk Cameron should had refuse to take a part in this movie, he had to read script before, and agree this didn't had nothing to do with a Cristian movie, it's all about baseball, and how a man takes things in his on way, they should have put God in first place by praying and trusting in God first, this doesn't teach my kids that battle are won with prayer, the only good thing was that it showed family should stick together, I had finish praying and decide to look for a Christian movie to inspired me and lift me up, when to Netflix and search for faith Christian movie and a lot came out, but mercy rules caught my attention, I saw Kirk Cameron name, and I pick this one base in other movies that I saw before with him, and to my disapoiment it was not a great movie, I think Kirk and his wife as Christian should think twice next time they choose to participate in a film, make sure that the role they play will impact a life, like fire proof or left behind, this is just my opion Gbu

I loved the movie. I thought the story was great and the acting was good. While not overtly Christian, the values were there for sure. I think we need more movies that aren't so Christian that only Christians will want to watch them. When it comes to art, you can't please everyone but I find it sad that so many believers can be SO critical of something they don't like personally. I don't personally like Indian food but that's no reason to be critical of it.

I really love Kirk as a dear brother in Jesus Christ. I have used the "Way of the Master" video series in my church with Kirk and Ray Comfort. And all the movies I've seen him in were really great and well done...Christ honoring!! This movie was a BIG disappointment. There was nothing really Christian about it. It had a very poor story line, and could not keep my or my wife's interest. I was glad when it was finally over. The movie also lasted too long and had too much slow motion shots. Why Kirk and his wife even appeared in the movie, I'll never know. In my view, it was all "wood, hay, and stubble" and a waste of my time. I share all this because I truly care about Kirk, and I hope that he really prays about any more movies he decides to be a part of. I would have enjoyed an old Andy Griffith TV rerun much more if I was looking for "secular" family entertainment!!!

I agree whole-heartedly!!! This movie was sorely disappointing!!! And Kirk Cameron has been VERY VOCAL about his faith for years--but where'd it go??? I didn't see any of it in this movie. I even googled to see if he'd renounced his faith! In the description, it says something about the family learns to trust on God--really? Was that where Kirk used the phrase "you can thank God Almighty..." while talking about something--idk what??? He didn't mention Christ at all. I felt insulted in my Christianity in that I feel like Kirk turned "sell-out" and just wanted to be a "movie star" and was probably looking for a big paycheck to go with it. I thought by the description, it would be a wonderful film for the whole family...WRONG! And like the above comenter, OMG the SSSSSLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWWW MOTION!!! Did Kirk or anyone else view this film before it's release? And the music seemed wrong, like it should've been in a detective or crime show--it just made me feel nervous or anxious after a while. And I was shocked at how bad it was! I had great expectations. The only thing I got out of it--Kirk wanted a cigarette--cause "that would make this evening perfect" or something like that was what he said in the movie while sitting by the pool. And I hung on to the end--hoping and praying for some redeeming quality and hopefully--something that would mention Jesus Christ and be some sort of witness in any way...nothing. All I have to say about this "Christian movie" is that anti-christs should love it.

Thought the movie was really disappointing, slow moving, not much of a story line. Couldn't keep my interest or the kids. Like a low budget film that is a real flop. Sorry I bought it not a good christian film like courageous or Gods not dead.

Very good blog post.Really thank you! Fantastic. edecggeacgba

I sure wish I could rent this movie. I won't buy it, but I would like to watch it.
