Editorial Reviews

Matthew Stevenson is a troubled kid from a broken home. When he vandalizes the local church to get back at his parents, Matthew has to repair the damage to the church to avoid criminal charges. While working at the church, he meets Ernest, an accomplished wood carver who created the intricate woodwork decoration that Matthew destroyed. Ernest has become something of a hermit, but reluctantly comes out of reclusion to help repair the church. Now Ernest and Matthew must work together to preserve the church's beautiful antiquity, and along the way, they also manage to restore their faith in God and in life.

This is a good solid family film with expressed Christian values: WWJD = What Would Jesus Do?

This story is not a sequel to the original WWJD with John Schneider, a decent enough, low-budget effort - we do enjoy it. But WWJD-II is without question a better film in almost every way.

It certainly helps to have a strong story & this one is excellent! An adaption of 2001's "The Last Brickmaker in America," with Sidney Poitier, which is an outstanding family film - check it out. It's actually a bit surprising that they did such a good job of adapting this story of a troubled family at the breaking point because of misplaced personal priorities - a story which had been so well told previously in the "Last Brickmaker."

We enjoy "Last Brickmaker," "WWJD-II Woodcarver," & WWJD-I (John Schneider) too. We will ultimatly see them all many times over, making their purchase a sound entertainment investment for us. While none of them is "Lillies of the Field," ie: an outstanding major motion picture of "Oscar" quality - they are good films in their own right as made for TV movies.

"WWJD II - The Woodcarver" - is especially recommended for those who enjoy John Ratzenberger (we do) & who appreciate a good story with unashamed Christian values.

We bought our copy of WWJD-II & would gladly do so again.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Message To Be Learned From This Movie March 17, 2012
The woodcarver arrived at my home and my kids asked me what it was about. I didn't know what to tell them so I played it for them that evening instead. What I learned while watching "The Woodcarver" is that the devotional film genre of movies is far from gone. Though other movies of this genre are certainly few, there are still good stories and excellent values to be had, courtesy of Faith & Family films.

I won't ruin anything but I loved how two trouble souls helped each other in a way no one else could have. As unlikely as the help they channeled from one another was, it was full-circle. It is said that faith in god works the same way. This movie incorporates that idea and relates it through a believable story, commendable acting, and a heartwarming ending that, though convenient, begs to seen again.

As I said before, you don't see many movies like this anymore. Wouldn't it be a shame not to share a film like this with your children and family every once in a while? The kids; they've already seen lying, stealing, cursing, manipulating, and violence. It is all over the place, especially advertisements and, more shockingly, their own programs and cartoons. Let them see something that teaches them that the power of love has the strength to conquer all of the troubles that lie in their way.

I had a healthy dose of films very similar to this one when I was a child. In hindsight, it seems like there were more of them then. I believe that my values were helped in a positive way by the messages that I was delivered from films such as this.

5.0 out of 5 stars WWJD 2 The Woodcarver April 16, 2012
Verified Purchase
This movie was the greatest. The setting was so beautifull....and the log cabin was so comfy and homey it totally set the mood for the gentle loving widowed man who lived there. the woodcarvers kind and gernerous nature represented Jesus so well also in the counsel and manner he dealt with the troubled boy. I would recommend it as a must have movie to veiw time and time again through the years. A cherished keepsake.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woodcarver is simple yet profoundly moving August 28, 2012
This is a great family movie for 2012 filmed on various locations in British Columbia. I watched this movie on television recently and was quite moved by it. While the story line is different, it's as if "The Last Brickmaker in America" is a cookie cutter and they fit the woodcarver into the same mold. Having seen that fine film at least a dozen times, I could anticipate what was going to happen in this one in a couple of places. No matter, it is so touching that I didn't care.

The story is about a troubled teen Matthew Stevenson (played by Dakota Daulby) who acts out his frustration in a destructive manner by destroying some church property and damages some intricate woodwork formed by a master craftsman Ernest Otto (played by John Ratzenberger). John plays the part of Mr. Otto so well. He is soft spoken but his words resonate with those he talks to. The boy ends up working with Mr. Otto to help repair the damage he did. They quickly become friends and the boys attitude begins to change in a positive way. His father (played by Woody Jeffreys) really objects to his son helping Mr. Otto despite it being a punishment, as Mr. Otto is his competition so to speak in the construction business. Woody turns in a masterful performance as the boy's father.

I don't want to ruin the outcome, but I will say this, I don't think you could watch this movie from beginning to end and not be affected by it for the better. Whether or not you ascribe to the principles taught here, they will still ring true and stay with you for several days afterwards. If you haven't seen it, I can't recommend it highly enough. It's just wonderful. Obviously, it's family friendly. There is no objectionable material here.

4.0 out of 5 stars Watered down for TV sadly May 16, 2012
I haven't seen the original DVD but now I want to see it. I saw this movie on television and pretty much all references to Jesus were removed. It was about Faith and What would your grampa have done.

I wonder what would happen if this was done to any other religion? Watering it down so as not to "offend".

I didn't know about it being a WWJD movie until I looked it up. You wouldn't know it by the TV version, but still a nice little film.
