This movie totally hit the spot and the reviews corroborate it!!
4 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Some people are saying if you're Christian you might love this movie. Some who claimed themselves to be a believer are saying this movie has not made them feel better about their faith. Others are saying the obvious: "If you're not a believer, if you're agnostic or atheist you will either not go to the movies at all or just don't get it". I say this: I LOVE IT!! This movie is intended to be thought provoking no matter what! It is based on Christian values but without the religion label on it. Whether you like it or not, great leaders like Jesus, Gandhi, Buddha, and others spread forgiveness, peace and not "an eye for an eye" like most people would prefer. After all, who will forgive a bad guy who killed a little girl? The usual is you want them dead, punished, you want them chopped off to little pieces and you want it to slow and painful. I am sorry to tell you, if you feel like some guys here who believe bad people must go to hell and good people to heaven, you totally missed the point. And if you think the movie is only for believers, you missed it even more. This movie is a great piece of spiritual work intended to make people think deeper, to understand that maybe the answer is easier but like most of the beautiful things in this planet, people will keep looking for the right answers in the wrong places. No wonder the world is a mess, governed by selfish people who spend billions producing deadly weapons while some just die from starvation. It is not your problem right? Why should you care about what is going on the other side of the planet when you can't help your neighbor. This is not it but there is a big liar out there manipulating you and keeping you too busy and too scared, so that you do have eyes and you're not blind but you still can't see it. Don't worry, just like math or other sciences are not clear to many, these movies are not meant to be of an easy and rational source. It is what it is for a reason: you're not going to find answers if you keep doing it that you keep doing. Clearer? I hope not because it takes time and it takes understanding to get it. And if you don't try, chances are you will give up, and if you give up, you will continue blind as bad even having a perfect set of eyes! :)
