Good Movie, one you can take you whole family to.
5 March 2001 | by gwindhSee all my reviews

I saw this movie last night and It was very good. I think it is a breakthrough for many Christian Movies to come.

I feel really proud about this movie. It was a good story, there was good acting and I'm looking for more movies like this one.

I did see some bad reviews, and I think people who wrote words like Awful and Boring, are those who want to see pornography and hear cursing and degenerated things. This movie does not abide by the Standards many are used to. It is a shocker for those who do not know Christ. They don't understand and therefore they gave it a bad rating.

Carmen - I'm looking for your next movie! Matt - Keep up the good work!
