The movie was bearable, but not the greatest.
Dan M.
The film doesn't try to deal with how Christians should respond when persecution arises.
DM
My practice of not watching trailers before the movie has both good and bad points.

***WARNING: Spoiler Alerts In This Review!! ***

***Do NOT read if you do not want to know the plot! ***

Let me explain my position. I am a Christian who is more than willing to overlook the acting ability, characters, filming techniques, etc. Those things require money, which is not always easy to come by. What I am particular about is the message since that's the most important part of a film, and it costs almost nothing to create. This review is intended for likeminded individuals who have heard about this film and are curious to know whether it's worth purchasing or not.

The first element to note is that the main character, John Luther, is a Catholic. The reason why I bring this up is because it's a strong element to the plot, and also because it's not readily apparent in the trailer. Although the film portrays him as a Billy Graham-type character (a successful, influential Christian leader of a multi-national, religious organization), he is actually a devout Catholic, which is demonstrated later in the movie. In some scenes, Luther is seen holding a rosary to demonstrate his faithfulness while under stress. He also relies on the help of Catholic priests throughout the entire movie, so it's not a minor part of the film. In fact, all of the central good characters are Catholics. I don't recall seeing one Protestant, good or bad, in the movie. Also, the irony is not missed that the producers chose the name "Luther" for the main character who happens to be a devout Catholic.

The second element is the lack of spirituality in the film. There is little mention of the gospel or how Christians can rely on God as their anchor during times of persecution.

I really enjoyed the movie. The actors chosen, were top notch, and did a great job with the characters. The thing for me was that this movie could have been ripped from today's headlines. It was very relevant. It is edge of your seat action. Although this is a faith based movie, I believe anyone will enjoy it. It brings a major issue to the big screen that needs to be talked about. It's nice to have another movie that a family could watch together. There is so much out there that frankly isn't worth watching. I do recommend this movie if you like thrillers!

"Persecuted" creates a new genre of Christian Dystopian Thrillers in a gut-wrenching suspense filled with great acting, jump-in-your-seat action, and timely political and religious themes. The plot could have been tightened up a bit and I would have loved to have seen the newsworthy persecution of Christians by governments here and abroad reflected in the story, but it is worth a viewing if nothing else than to see a unique perspective in an important genre.

This film is unabashedly Christian and unabashedly anti-government. In that regard, it is just about as far from Hollywood as you can get and it's extremely refreshing to see something so independent. However, Hollywood movies do have their benefits like comic relief ("Persecuted" has none to speak of) and casting (the protagonist should have been 20 years younger).

Despite the flaws, "Persecuted" will keep you on the edge of your seat and furious at a system that no doubt perpetrates the evils depicted in it. See it once for entertainment value and see it again to support truly independent films. We need more bold pictures that challenge the status quo.

I loved the theme, I wanted to love the movie, but poor acting, a choppy undeveloped story-line, and a philosophically empty moral, not to mention only passing references to actual faith, left me wondering what the director was thinking. It seems as if it is very difficult to bring to the screen a truly great dystopian story. I recommend you read someone like the author Michael O'Brien, who penned the Children of the Last days series of novels, instead of wasting your money on this video.

While many would say this cannot happen today, the basic tenants are plausible and the story-line represents the inner motives and character of a world steeped in self-aggrandizement. For the clearly Christian movie, this does its job at being both informative and thought-provoking.

While it may not be a 'classic', it was an interesting movie with a message that is increasingly pertinent in our culture.

I'd say, mediocre acting and a really bad plot make for a boring movie. It's predictable. Camera angles remind me of stuff we filmed in high school when we were "just learning" the ins and outs of filming. Technically, it's grade school quality. Bad ending. If you're looking for a family friendly film, it's that and nothing more. If you want them to say the name of Jesus - just once - you won't find it in this film. Supposedly Christian film with no mention of Christ - what a tragedy.

Even with the star studded cast, I recommend watching The Fugitive with Harrison Ford instead of Persecuted. As a Christian I just couldn't connect with this film. Yes, John Luther was being framed and that's not cool; however, I don't see this scenario happening any time soon. When I think of persecution, I think of the Christians in the Middle East who are being killed or evicted from their homes for simply being Christian and not denouncing their faith. Those are the truly persecuted people and their story needs to be told instead of rehashing another movie to put a Christian spin on it.
