Storyline

Traveling Route 66, a charismatic preacher, Reverend Johnny Jones, and his seductively beautiful Latina girlfriend, Rebecca, find their lives spiraling out of control as they travel from small town to small town; running their scam on the churches they encounter along the mother road. He's able to convince people he has the power to heal their illnesses and solve their most dreadful life experiences. But what the couple think is their scam begs the question does he really have the power? It's a question that haunts him and only intensifies his inner demons. Scarred for life, his childhood abuse from his evil father won't soon go away. He finds temporary refuge at the bottom of each bottle of tequila and endless grams of cocaine that goes up his nose. His childhood demons will not subside, neither will his vices. In the end, his powers serve as a blessing and a curse. Hang on tight while we follow this perilous couple's journey into the abyss of miracles and tragedy. Written by Norman McGuire

Praise the Lord
11 November 2018 | by jonerogersSee all my reviews

So writing this review amongst many bad ratings and some good ones. It does really fascinate me to see the ratings at such vast contrasts but here goes.

I liked this film as it had a feasible story line, a con artist going about grabbing money from churchy people and add a bit of violence and a couple like bonny and Clyde and woohaa and your there.

Let me tell you it really is a believable story and besides that it coasts along nicely for just over 90 minutes. It's not a high paced action movie but it's good enough to watch whilst munching through your popcorn.

Do yourself a favour see it for yourself as it certainly was not as bad as some of the reviewers are saying.

Overall a good story, reasonable acting and a nice back drop of that famous route 66.
