After police officer Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God … and everyone else. Can Mac and his new patrol partner, Sgt. Sam Wright, somehow join forces to help one another when it’s impossible to look past their differences—especially the most obvious one? Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal wounds by extending and receiving God’s grace. Offer The Grace Card … and never underestimate the power of God’s love. The Grace Card stars Michael Joiner, Michael Higgenbottom and Academy Award Winner, Louis Gossett Jr.
A Christian film about grace and forgiveness, The Grace Card tackles prejudice, loss, and grief. The death of a child 17 years ago filled Mac's heart with anger and bigotry and crippled his relationship with his wife and youngest son. In his job as a policeman, he's paired up with Sam, a black officer who's also a part-time preacher and whom Mac dislikes intensely. Sam has also just received the promotion Mac thinks he deserved himself. The difficult partnership affects each man and his family in very different and significant ways. Sam struggles with the conflict between his desire as a minister to love and accept everyone, and his intense feelings of anger and even hate toward his fellow officer. That struggle almost turns him away from his calling as a preacher. A crisis on the job threatens to decimate what's left of Mac's family and brings the conflict between Mac and Sam to a climax. Just when the situation looks like it might destroy both men, a few well-chosen words and a seeming coincidence reveal that God has made Sam's and Mac's paths cross for a reason. What's more, their interaction with one another causes both men to experience a personal and spiritual growth that neither could have anticipated. The expressions of bigotry in the film are hard to stomach, the sermonizing may be off-putting to some, and the events are sometimes quite predictable, but the portrayal of a city torn in half by racial prejudice is compelling and the message that forgiveness, rather than justice, offers the best solution is certainly worth considering. --Tami Horiuchi

I'm sure this was a wonderful storyline- if you know SPANISH!! I watched the first 10 minutes and it was completely SPANISH. However, the 8 movie previews (arghhhhh- too many- should never be more than 3 previews!) were in ENGLISH... the printing on the DVD is in ENGLISH. So, the SPANISH version was placed in the ENGLISH cover- whose oversight was that?! Nonetheless, the movie previews should be in the SAME language as the movie itself!
I loved the movie. The story was excellent, the actingvery good.I thought Grace and Forgiveness were protrayed excently. I have only one complaint and I have noticed a great deal in more recently made movies.. sometimes it is very hard to undersstand the actors. Seems like they are not enuciating, and it is often difficult to understand.
All in all though the movie is excellent! I highly recommend it.
The minus star is because as a film obviously trying to bring a Godly message, it fell short of getting the whole story of Jesus Christ's death and resurrection for all sin of mankind and through accepting that free gift of salvation, brings with it transformation and healing. It shows, God changes and helps message. It just left out going that extra sentence or two, yes God, but specifically by Jesus. This can be done without preachy methods, just adding a few lines.
This movie gave you part of that message where those that know Jesus would fill in that missing part, but others may not. Still a very good movie. Yes, ending can be for some predictable, but, in this type of movie it didn't affect where it was taking you.
Recommend: Greater, Do You Believe, The Investigator, Facing the Giants, God's Not Dead 1&2, War Room, and for every Dad, watch Courageous.
Grateful for these movies that bring positive messages without cursing and sex on screen.
