Wow. That is one NEGATIVE review. I liked the movie. There were some hokey scenes I would have left out,. But overall, it was moving and it made me laugh. And it had me hooked from start to finish. Reading between the lines, I think you sound like you've got some daddy issues there Ed. Try watching it again with a little more detachment. You might like it. I did. 4 out of 5 stars.

I thought this guy would at least have half a brain since he acknowledged the movie doesn't hide that it is a message from Christians. Sadly, his pointing out race which makes no sense is obviously an attempt to show how the movie is racist. At my work, we've only had one black technician in the past 11 years and he worked less than a month....is it racists that most techs that apply are not black, or that most of the blacks (along with many whites and Hispanics)fail the background check? He mentions the black gang members, but ignored the scene where there were white people getting arrested for drugs as well; it was the scene where Javier was riding in the back seat. These cries of racism are really starting to get very old.
