Movie Reviews

Was John Paul II like this??? I don't think so!!!!
L.M.Montgomery | 05/26/2006
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I don't understand why ABC broadcasted this movie, the only reason I find is that they tried to shadow CBS's own effort to conmemorate the life of John Paul II, but what they got was a cheap, bad performed version. When I saw it, I thought of it as an insult to the life of this Great Pope and not as a recognition to it. The actors where not up to their standards, it seamed that it was done as quickly as possible. If you really want to learn about the life of JPII or you are a catholic who loved the Pope and want to buy a movie of his life to cherish in the future better get KAROL the man who became Pope or CBS version starting Cary Elwes and John Voight (I don't remember the title) which were done with love and respect."
Touching but FAST

"I am not quite shure what to say in general about this movie. It was beutifully acted by everyone who was involed. It was really touching movie and this is from someone who is not chatholic. The movie has one flaw and that is it goes way to fast through some of the events in his life. One does not get the total view of the entire circumstance of the particular events which it should at least set up a little better. Though overall this was a wonderful film and unlike most films today can bewatched by the entire family weather your chatholic or not."
