Movie Reviews

Reality, Great Acting, Great Message
Wheelie Man | TX | 03/14/2009
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Saving God is a RARE movie in that it not only has a good story with a great message but the acting is great! I'm one of those Christians who watches Christian movies with the feeling that I'm being dragged across nails to stand the low budget and poor acting. Even some of the best ones were difficult in the acting department.

Saving God is a BIG step up from the others. The story is not a typical little feel good story like many. It is a story of struggles and not only struggles with non believers but struggles with believers as well. It doesn't paint a false picture of perfection of those who are saved. It simply shows the truth which is that we are born sinners who still have struggles and only thrive in the fact that we are made clean by the blood of Christ.

Not only is the story good but the acting is superb. I couldn't believe I was watching a Christian movie. Rhames was outstanding to say the least. No, the other actors aren't up to his level but unlike other Christian films, they are not only tolerable but enjoyable.

In the end there are many messages in Saving God. I've already used a scene or two for my teaching. I think there are 10 or so scenes that one could use to show great examples of different views into what is going on in the world today (real life!) and how we should deal with them.

Compared to all movies this would still get a 4 out of 5 stars but as a cheap Christian film it easily gets 5 stars. I just wonder why there wasn't more advertising on this one. They really missed their chance to let people know how much they are missing if they don't watch this movie."
Missed The Mark

"This movie had some good points and good acting. They did show how God can turn anyone's life around. No one is beyond God's Grace. Yet, where the movie fell flat was the "Christian couple" that was friends with Norris and his girlfriend. They preached it, yet they didn't quite live it. They weren't married and they were having sex...yet the movie made it seem like it was all right because they were "faithful" to each other. Come on...that's not Biblical. It could have been a very good movie...but this one point really blew it for me."
Great Movie*****

"Pay no mind to the other review that is negative.Preaching God's word has a price and their are trials you go through.Real Preachers are made up of broken down losers that the world spits at."
Great movie for anybody to see
