Persecuted reviewed

After seeing Prosecuted I have to say this movie is not exactly a glue you to your seat Christian Movie we have seen of late.

It does a good job of representing the Church in a positive light but there are parts that leave you scratching your head and wondering what message were they trying to get across.

James Renner plays the lead Pastor (John Luther) does a really good job of representing a large mega church in the DC area with global influence. Fred Thompson is his Father and a Priest who plays a believable role as well and is especially good in the political scenes and his knowledge of the political arena really shines through.

The movie is set in the DC area is centered around a scandal that erupts when Luther doesn’t want to play ball with a certain congressman and starts the wheels in motion of a scandal of epic proportions the rocks the church to its core.

There are parts where you can see the lack of planning and or budget becomes apparent as gaps in the plot leave you wondering at certain times what they had in mind.

Over all I give this a 2.5 Angels out of 5 as it tried to make a good attempt at the integrity of Christianity but towards the end it became murky in terms of the Hollywood creep into the story line and should of finished stronger honoring God in a more positive light.

I still commend the producers for making more of these types of movies however, I think there is more work to do as Christians become more and more willing to flock to the big screen if the material is accurate and respectable.

The plot starts at a fast pace as the opening scene places you in the middle of the action just before the Luther is set to go on stage and is confronted by the Congressman played by Bruce Davison. This seemed most believable actually of the entire movie as the timing was believable and you could actually see things really happening this way.

The following scenes seemed to take on a rapid pace that stated leaving holes where you had to really fill in the gaps and started wondering about the Christian based part of the film that I think the directors might have as well.

Not to give to much away but as the family became involved after Luther being setup seemed to be almost unreal as they seem to cut out a large amount just to get the movie going in the direction they wanted it to.

didn’t feel like it was a waste of money to see this film. I would recommended to all audiences but some of the scenes can be slight graphic so younger audiences probably should not watch it.

Overall a good movie and is you get a chance to see it lave your comment below would love to know your thoughts.

ou on an emotional roller coaster from the very beginning!

If your are a believer or not, you will find this movie most interesting. When you start to look at the way movies are starting to change for the better, you can put this at the top of the must see list.

In Gods Not Dead it pits a college professor played by Kevin Sorbo, against a freshman student played by Shane Harper, with the question you guessed it, is God dead?

The movie does a great job of keeping you spiritually riveted and actively leaves you wanting more of the scenes in which God is being talked about or better yet seeing lives changed for the better. Christian movies some times are lacking in this department but not this one. Many times we have to try and dig through a murky plot to find the biblical perspective, but not in this movie. God’s not dead really goes the extra mile to give the Christian perspective as we all know, the enemy likes to increase attacks on us as we stand up for God.

The professor at the heart of the controversy is bitter over an incident in his childhood and caused him to turn from God in a real way. He remains bitter and carries it over to the class room and tries to influence students in a not so good way, as he tries to lead people into non belief. The actor does a great job of making this believable and really gets in to the character.

The freshman student a Christian, does a outstanding job of creating effective arguments in favor of the almighty. As I was watching it, inside I was screaming YES there is a God and he is real and he can change your life for the better!

Many times these type of movies miss the mark and fall short of promoting God in a positive light. God’s not Dead is not one of them . It is very uplifting, almost from the start. It ties the characters together in a neat package and with a surprise ending that we were not expecting.

I would recommend this movie to anyone of all ages and especially to those who do not know Jesus, this a great way to introduce them to the Lord. This move is not to overwhelming and is a great way to introduce any person to Christianity. It has a way of relating to young and old in a meaningful way. It would be hard pressed for someone not to be moved by this and is actually a five Angel hit.

Many Christians and myself included hope to see more of this type of movie as it actually makes for great family entertainment, I applaud the producers and look forward to more of the same type of movies. I think in many ways we have a real chance of making a huge difference to many generations if our entertainment gauge continues to go up and great material is produced.

Have a Blessed Day,
