  • Top Notch!

    Honestly, I wasn't expecting this to be so well done. I knew the story and have read the book, "The Case for Christ." The movie was not a fairy rote Christian redemption narrative - it was a true story no different than Rudy or any other movie based on a true story. The acting was well done - though I still have a hard time with the clothing from the 70's! Sure, some may want to use this movie to proselytize, but hopefully it will encourage us to not have to convince others, but to love them well.
  • Everybody just slow down

    The one star reviews are from people who pride themselves in being super intelligent people who “know” for a fact there isn’t a god. Welllll that’s just not fair. Believer in Jesus Christ or not this was a good film. Was it a masterpiece no but it wasn’t a 1 Star film....that’s just ignorant

    I LOVE this movie! I was on my toes the whole time about whether or not the main character would ever have a change of heart. This movie is about someone's life-changing experience and how a ruthless atheist seeks all answers to prove the case for Christianity to be worthless. A good family movie. Suspenseful. Sobering. No spoiler alerts from me if you haven't already watched it. But I'm pretty sure you're really gonna like it.

    Braced for a sterotypical fath film but was pleasently surprised with a great story well shot and executed.
  • Such a powerful movie of a transformation

    By Jena's Itunes
    As a believer, but also a millennial.... this movie was not even on my radar nor something I would have actively picked on my own. Thankfully I stopped to visit my mother after work and she was about to watch it and I got the opportunity to experience such a wonderful motion picture of a man's quest for answers. The historical facts presented in this film I think is what makes this movie go above and beyond. Learned so many new things about my own faith. I'd highly recommend this film to both believers, those searching to answers in this wonderful universe, and also those looking for just conversational starting points to begin your own research into the faith.
  • Wow!

    This movie was the best pureflix I think I've seen so far. Very well done.
  • Powerful. I can relate.

    One of the best movies that I have seen in a long time. Really well done and much deeper than what comes out of Hollywood these days. I enjoyed seeing Chicago too (my old hometown) and a very contemporary message of racial hope and redemption that I pray will take over in that stricken city's south and west sides. On a personal level, this really hits home. As an academic, a college professor, someone awarded high scholastic honors (for what that is worth), and living in the scientific and medical world, I have the same doubts and arguments. In the last 15 years, I have witnessed many brilliant medical minds living and loving patients in the model and inspiration of Jesus Christ. Many Christian and others not. The model of selfless love is there. More than ever, in this hurting and deeply confused world we need simple, unselfish love and understanding. Anyway, well done. Some close friends are atheists and while I am not trying to change their minds, it will provide some good discussion.
  • Amazing!!

    This movie is such a beautiful testimony! It was so fun to watch how God moved in even the hardest of hearts. Definitely a must see for people who aren't sure who God is and how much he loves you!
  • Keeping it Real!

    By Walkerboy7
    Very very impressed with the content and acting. A true life story is not going to have all the added flare of fictional movies. But it's real ... moving ... and will make any objective person think. Well done!!
