  • Pulls out the spiritual truths that we all lack

    This film hit home more than once that I was able to reflect many parts of the pain as a child to pains in my adulthood to the wisdom scene and and finally my relationship with God. Excellent in the trinity of God role as the Father, Son and Holy Ghost to serve our needs through forgiveness

    It was great
  • Insipid...predictable

    By lionzuest
    Well intentioned, but embarrassingly trite... I cringed as empirical questions were met with fortune cookie replies.. Sam Worthington's accent migrates distractingly from a southern drawl to the outback .... Fortunately I only paid 99cents...if you really want to watch this genre, 'What Dreams May Come' is a classic...
  • Trailer alone was traumatic

    By Dakion
    We went to the theater to see a PG movie with our kids and the trailer for this movie played before it. My six year old daughter was so traumatized by it, she is awoken by nightmares about it frequently and asks us “what we would do if she was taken from us” weekly.
  • Excellent Movie!!!

    By LauraineWhite
    I read this book when it was first published & the depiction in this movie is outstanding! Love, love, love it!!!
  • Worst movie ever

    By Cheater Smurf
    Nothing "Christian" about it. If you're smart, just google "shack exposed" or "shack unchristian." Tons of blasphemies and God and the Bible totally taken out of context. Worst piece of junk movie I've ever seen!!
  • A moving yet controversial film

    By kidfatty
    It's a film that tries to be very Christian yet finds itself on thin ice when it tries to portray God as a woman. Good lessons to be learned but at the same time something feels more than a little off in movie 8/10
  • Amazingly powerful

    By Dan Batson
    I absolutely loved this movie! The movie had an awesome portrayal of God and His love for us. It even dove in to try and explain the Father, Son and Holy Spirit. I was very impressed with that part alone. Just brilliant! I was in tears or grief, love, and joy throughout. Octavia Spencer's role was an outstanding portrayal of God's love. I hope everyone gets a chance to watch this movie.
  • twisted movie for twisted people

    By Minty Freshness

    Loved it! Starts off slow because they take time to develop the characters and that really helps it hit a home run at the end!
