5.0 out of 5 stars Always given a bad rap..., March 3, 2006
This review is from: Visitation, The (DVD)
The term "Christian movie" makes most people cringe. They hear the term applied, assume that the movie is going to be perfectly horrible, and watch it thinking as such. When THE VISITATION came out on DVD, I picked it up. I had enjoyed Frank Peretti's book by the same title a lot, and was very shocked by the ending of the story. And as I settled in to watch the movie, I started getting really excited.

Pretty much, a fallen minister, Travis Jordan, is at the end of his rope, not caring too much about what else happens in the little town around him. But then miracles start happening, people are being healed, and a mysterious stranger has come to town proclaiming love and peace to the people. Travis Jordan, a local veterinarian, and Kyle Sherman, a preacher, are all feeling very uneasy about the goings on, and when they start looking deeper into the situation, they start to find something they never wished they had stumbled onto...

The story does deviate slightly from the book, but the major plot points are intact, and the ending gives the viewer a somewhat disturbing feeling after film's end. The cinematography is amazing, finding perfectly wonderful angles to film, and the cutting is just right to give an intense creepy feel to the film. The acting actually was pretty good, featuring Martin Donovan (Saved!) Randy Travis, Edward Furlong (Terminator 2), and Hilary Tuck (Honey I Shrunk The Kids the Television Series).

As far as CONTENT goes: There is a little bit of cleavage during one scene in the film, there are some very disturbing situations, but nothing incredibly graphic is shown. Blood is about the worst of the gore. There is no language in the film, which is a nice change for movies today.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed THE VISITATION, and I would encourage viewers to remember that movies and books are different entities. (Even parts of LORD OF THE RINGS were altered (or left out completely) from the books...)
