Now to the movie, Kevin Max plays the role of a Christian singer who is backsliding (I know some people don't like that term). He would go on stage and sing songs which possibly could have been about Jesus (the movie makes it clear that you don't know because Jesus's name is not mentioned), and after the concert, he would be out drinking, cheating on his wife, etc. Personally, I wondered if Kevin Max did not play this role so well because he lived the role. I was really pleased with Kevin Max's performance. I think that he showed that the road to redemption is rough, and sometimes Christians are the hardest people to get forgiveness from. Also, this movie showed that once you do straighten your life out that not everything is back to being rosie. It is a process, and you have to rebuild a life with trust from the very beginning up. Honestly if all the rumors were true about Kevin Max, I hope he has really found his way back to true redemption.
Now to the music, the majority of the music was catchy for a younger crowd. My parents (who are in their 50's) hated the music. Sometimes there were places in the movie where music was played that I believe was really not necessary. I would have liked to have heard stronger Christian lyrics; however, I understand alot of the music in the movie was to show a straying from this. One song that I really did not like though was carry on thy wayward son. I really felt Kevin Max butchered this song. I feel that the best version of this song was done by a girl christian rock group called Rachel Rachel. They rocked that song.
Would I recommend this film? I would definitely recommend it to people under about 35. Anyone over that, might really be irritated by the music.
I wish the ending would have been a little more in depth; however, I understand that they were trying to make it more realistic. In real life, not everything is wrapped up nicely. This is about all I have to say about this movie. God bless.
The movie talks about the lead singer of a popular Christian band who lives a double life. His wife decides to leave him, and his life crashes out without and money to live on. He goes through a phase of being humbled, and the movie has an open ending, which I like, and without them concluding what happened or try to make things all dandy and nice.
This is better than a lot of Christian movies I've watched, and I would recommend this based on the message it communicates.
