We found this movie entertaining and thought-provoking. The central question or concern regarding the extent to which computers dominate our lives hit home to us, living as we do with that reality daily. The fact that it was an independent film also appealed to us and yet the movie had none of the amateurish errors you sometimes see in such efforts. Production values were excellent and so were the actors. We'd recommend it.

Recently, I saw the video, The Grand Budapest Hotel. I feel like I should have enjoyed it more than I did given the great reviews, brand-name cast, and significant production budget. I only mention this because pretty much the opposite holds true for The God Question; given the unknown cast, and micro production budget, I shouldn't have enjoyed it as much as I did -- especially after reading some of the negative reviews here. This movie approaches the concept of computer AI from angles I haven't seen elsewhere. It struck me as pretty original. The central plot serves as a device into which many other pertinent questions are woven. The storyline feels uncomplicated to a fault, but it wasn't until I started talking about the movie with my husband that I realized how many issues it actually tackled. Surely, more bells and whistles could have been added with a larger budget, but at least this film did not leave me scratching my head over giant holes in the plot, or frustrated by innaccurate portrayals of the science behind the story. This is an honest film.

Very nicely produced movie; good acting. However, if you hope the movie will give you the answer at the end, it won't. While well done, it lacked "meat" in my mind. I wanted more substance. Not a bad movie, just not "enough" in my mind.

My goodness, I can't believe the unrealistic and negative reviews from a few people here. The movie was thought-provoking and should appeal to folks interested in the whole God Question, as well as those interested in the virtues and evils of the internet and a computerized world. Obviously there aren't going to be car chases and things exploding in a low-budget film like this. Why would there be? There probably wouldn't have been even if the producer had had a million dollar budget to work with. It's not that kind of a movie. The lead actor Keith Langsdale is very good. Excellent effort from a first-time filmmaker.

Having asked hundereds of people this same question, I was curious about the treatment of the subject in this film.
Although it was s-l-o-w...and the acting by some was not very good, the question and the questioning of the question was wonderful. If you are at all curious about this subject, then this is one of your must see movies.

I watch a movie to get drawn into the characters and events and exposed, through that, to ideas or new sides of ideas. This film got that itch going but didn't really scratch it. It got some of that done, which is what matters, even though it was obviously not big budget. The sound seemed kind of amateurish at times, the acting merely adequate, the incidental music reminded me of an after school special. But it wasn't bad. It was a real movie and it competently did the things movies should do. It just didn't fulfill what I hoped for it to be. Which I guess is a metaphor for what went on in the film itself. Wonder if that was intended.

The first 3/4 is a drawing room drainer, but you will never guess the end.
