I think this film was a good thing. Still, I have difficulty when a movie, like this one, tries to use itself to plug Evangelical viewpoints. For perspective, the marvelous TV series Touched By an Angel never crossed that line. Touched spoke constantly about faith and God and the role He can have in our lives, but it never tried to put forth Evangelical theories about being "saved" with easy-pass grace.

I enjoyed this video for values contained in the plot--for one man's change of attitude toward his family when a child dies and his committment to be a better father--how this change affected his friends and how they made changes in their own lives.

My husband and I tried to watch it. The acting was not the best. Camera shots were shaky. We didn't finish it. I am a Christian and everyone raved about it. Sadly, it wasn't "all that".

Predictable plot line and not the greatest actors. It just didn't grab my attention, much less hold on to it. It felt much longer than the actual running time.. It's in the donation box.

Disappointed. The DVD got "stuck" in the middle, making me doubt that it was a new DVD, which I thought it was. The content was "preachy".

Its funny how most of the reviews (and I have read a large portion of them) are not really a critique of the movie itself but about how one feels about Christianity. Most non-believers gave the movie a low rating simply because it was a Christian film, while the professing Christians gave it a high rating merely because it is Christian. I have been a sold out disciple of Christ Jesus for 21 years and in all honesty this was NOT a great movie, decent, but not great. The message was clear and timely, but the mediocore acting, poor character development, unrealistic plot points (there were a few), and general oversimplifications makes it less than exemplary entertainment. I understand that a world that is at emnity with God makes it challenging to produce quality Christian entertainment, but for believers to give every Christian endeavor a thumbs up is disingenuous; it makes others question the validity of other matters, including those of faith.

It was okay. It certainly wasn't the greatest story ever told. I thought the message of needing a good father was important, but I noticed that the gang members were all black, and the black police officer hadn't been raised by his own father. It isn't that such things don't happen, but those stereotypes weren't really offset by anything else in the movie, so were sort of glaring. Additionally, the movie plot was about as predictable as it could possibly be, but that isn't the point of the movie. The point is to see some nice people that still love Jesus. Considering they are trying to show cops as heroes, it is a little disingenuous and hypocritical. It is like showing soldiers as heroes. They're just guys that have a job that requires they carry a gun. Every now and then they might act heroic, but in all honesty, I'm tired of them. I'm an upstanding, law-abiding citizen who has never gotten on the wrong side of the law, but cops still don't seem to be very nice people, so watching a movie about them was...hard. By the way, I only watched this because of a school assignment.

I was told this was a great CD.
I was looking forward to watch it, but the CD was missing

I loved the movie. It is a must see for all. I shared it with my women's ministry and it was enjoyed by all.
