Before i get into my review of the film itself, i first fell the need to address many of the negative comments people have raised about this film being to one sided/biased. To those people all I have to say is this, why the heck are you so shocked that a film entitled, Gods Not Dead, is Biased towards the existence of god, seriously its like if someone went to a Jewish cultural center and got angry that most of the people their were in favor of the state of Israel!

With that out of the way I genuinely enjoyed this film and the arguments it made while debating the existence of god, although I think one of the major problems of the film was how it constantly jumped around from various characters points of view as opposed to spending more time inside of the classroom. To put it simply, I wish that they had spent more time on the debate inside of the classroom as opposed to focusing on several of the periphery characters which, while interesting, lacked relevance to the central storyline of the film itself.

In conclusion, while the film is in no way perfect, I came out of the theater's intellectually satisfied and would recommend both this films, as well as the book of the same name which addresses other arguments for the existence of god, to anyone who is interested in this increasingly important discussion.

And in case anyone is interested on my own feelings on the matter, it could be summed up in the following statement.

"The more I study science the more I believe in God" - Dr. Albert Einstein

Warning - Spoilers ahead.

This is a decent enough movie for most of its runtime and would normally have earned a 4 out of 5 from me. In case you do not already know, it is about a boy defending his Christian faith against a college professor who is an atheist and essentially wants to impose that view on his philosophy class. During the course of the movie, there are subplots involving others dealing with the struggles of their faith, or lack thereof.

What lowers the rating for me is the ending, where all the Christians of the story end up at a Christian rock concert, as if that is the end all be all of what it is to be a Christian. I believe a montage of video clips, depicting the various characters supporting each other and taking strength from their faith (some new found) while facing their difficulties (one dying from cancer, one abandoned by her family, one losing his fiance, and one death) would have been a much more touching and powerful ending. The concert was weak and superficial, with a bunch of text messages sent all over, that does not in any way capture the true value of the Faith. (In fact, one character is a new convert, newly expressing his desire to be a Christian, and the concert is the first place he is taken.)
It just seems to cheapen all the struggles experienced beforehand.

I took someone with me who is "not religious at all" and who did not expect to like the movie... he went for the popcorn and soda. He essentially thought, "It has superman and Kevin Sorbo, how bad could it be?" He not only watched it, he liked it. He said it wasn't preachy and the arguments in the classroom were interesting. So, well done, people.

I am waiting for the dvd to come out, and will purchase it as a gift for several families/individuals who are unlikely to have seen the movie. I also ordered the t-shirt, hat, and "bracelet", and cup. The last two items have been given as gifts already, one to a friend going through a challenge, and the other to someone entering a hospital.

Restores my hope in humanity. It is encouraging to see that there are still many believers, including the producers of this show. With so much smut and garbage in the media it is refreshing to watch an uplifting and wholesome show. Great watch and great message.

Bus driver asked how christmas was. Said stayed home watching dvd andromeda. He never heard of it. Told him about it & said kevin sorbo at that he told me about this film which he just saw. Sounded good & i pre ordered it.
Just saw it. Wow. It hit home. I cried about amy cancer & has no one. Nov age 60 had just been diagnosed with myotonic dystropy. Cause of things & my heart have less than 10 yrs to live. Everybody left me. I have nobody. Went into the dumps.
Most important thing i got out of the film is-the reminder ive still got God & Jesus they are my strengh & will help me get through it. In dumps no more.

First I think this movie has a strong message in it, unfortunately there seems to be some issues the way its being viewed...some people say it portrays atheists as evil, vile, etc and christians as perfect and happy with no problems in the world. I however say it portrays both sides. If you read into the spoiler section I've written below it might help clear up just what I'm talking about. I highly suggest watching the movie and if you think it deserves less then a 3 you may want to read my take on it.

*Spoiler Section*
One thing missed I think is the fact that the Josh's girlfriend *Christian* completely abandoned him and his fight for God was missed. Not one would stand up to fight for God?? Is he happy about losing his girlfriend??? okay and the classroom of students... I'm sure there was more then one in the class that believed...what was it 80 students or so estimated?? Christians ignored their faith. Why is it that the professor being christian as a boy is seen as a vile atheist, he wasn't a vile atheist to begin with was he??? He had a change of heart at the last moment. It shows a christian life that got off track, much like Josh's girlfriend. The church minister and his friend had a bit of trouble, but it happened with good reason.

It included the chinese guy whom wasn't a believer. He was intrigued, he wasn't vile and nothing bad happened to him...the whole classroom, they weren't vile even though they signed the paper saying they didn't believe (atheist). They came in with questions and made the choice in the end they did. Okay...was it realistic that nearly everyone changed from non-believer to believer in the end...probably not, but in the beginning it was the opposite. We as people lose sight of things and whats important even people of religion.
