Movie Reviews

Low budget, But was surprisely good
hufffam | Montgomery, Al United States | 11/27/2007
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This movies is about how quickly we forget that prayer is the key to your problems NOT money. It gets you to really thinking about your friends. Vivica played a low keyed role then usually, but i was surprise at DMX role. Over all it was good and worth the $13.00 buck @ Sam's Club."
Better Sound + Better Camera = Better Movie
Noir Man | Bay Area, CA United States | 08/18/2008
(3 out of 5 stars)

"For a movie that had a very interesting storyline I cannot say that I recommend spending the money to buy it. It was interesting to examine different personalities at work in the church, to see vulnerabilities and human frailties displayed by those at the "top" in ministry, but I honestly couldn't hear what they were saying sometimes because the sound was was hissing, too low, or even almost mute!! It was ridiculous, especially during a key scene when the bishop and Luther Heir were discussing a proposal in Luther's limousine...who was the Einstein that decided to film the scene with the back windows open and the overwhelming sound of the outside traffic/noise??!! Very frustrating. I could have at least survived with subtitles, but alas, there were none.

The acting was good, generally, but there were some disconnections in the not-too-loud shot was fired in one part of the building and suddenly the Conference was screaming and scrambling in sheer terror?! And what about all those snake tattoos...there could have been more done with that theme. There were also some non-creative stereotypes used -- the accountant is a nerdy, argyle-sweater-wearing guy; the film's title character was a Turk, a Muslim (at least assumed) with the name, Luther?? It's hard to not come off as arrogant when the Christians have a Muslim-type as Lucifer in their film. Not a good choice in my opinion.

As a Christian I enjoy the look at a public, successful leader in ministry that is complex in that he is still proud, yet humble, sober and drunk, confident and just would have been very, VERY nice to actually hear ALL of the dialog.

Definitely rent it ( the scenes with DMX were my favorites ) but don't buy it until they improve the quality of the DVD."
Good movie.

"The movie is very good. I would say that everyone should see. The acting is very good, but it can be a little extreme at times. 5/5"
