"Grit Meets Grace! The Street Meets its Match in Faith, Hope and Pastor Cane!" --Myles Holmes, TCT
Top Customer Reviews
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.
This film is so touching and well made and extremely well acted. Ving Rhames was also executive producer, so this may be a clue to where is heart really is these days.
Whether you are a believer or not, please give this wonderful film a try!
In Jesus' Name
I put that up there because for me he will always be one of the main actors in Entrapment (Special Edition) where he very strangely has not received the credit he deserves as a supporting actor.
I am glad that all the Christians like this movie, but for me is is not a Christian movie per se, but rather a movie about raw life, the contradictions and challenges, and more often than most people realize, the unexpected openings for salvation and a new direction. The end is gripping, it can inspire tears.
Ving Rhames is the lead actor here (as he was in the sequel to Kojak as a series) and I would very much like to see him featured in other movies. Solid as a rock and that refers to his mind and his presence, not his body.
Absolutely recommended for viewing by anyone, not just families, and especially anyone who thinks they are "stuck." Taking a line from Human Target: The Complete First Season, "You're not as stuck as you think you are." BRAVO.
As a gesture of respect, and with a tip of the hat to Wikipedia where his entry is one of the better ones on substance, here are the three Mission Impossible movies he appeared in, the only person besides Tom Cruise to have this honor:

is worth taking time out of your busy schedule to see this. It is very
encouraging to see how God can change a person. I really don't know if it would be a useful tool for salvation but I think that even those who are not christians will enjoy this. It is not "in your face preaching. It is just watching one man who did something bad in the past -how he and God changed his life--how God used him to change someone else's life.
As a christian -it was VERY ENCOURAGING.
I do think that it is for children under 12 maybe 13 --just depends on how mature they are.
This movie is something like you could see happen in today's times.
I love the part where Pastor Cane questions the other pastor about "knowing" the parishners--about is he just up there preaching for the money and what he can get and selling God or is he really trying to make a difference in the people--is he available when someone in his church is hurting and needs comfort or prayer or just to talk. I think this movie hits on a lot of little things that goes on and needs to be "brought out into the open.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this movie!!
It is extremly nice to see a christian movie that has good acting and believable people
