Critic Reviews for The Cross(The Cross: The Arthur Blessitt Story)
This wannabe-inspirational docu shares its hero's devotion to preaching the gospel. But the film's emotional manipulations come at the expense of a more complex, illuminating look at the man himself.
The gee-whiz rhetoric and breathless amateurism of The Cross is not likely to inspire.
The documentary The Cross is not going to displace The Ten Commandments as the official movie of the Easter season.
What inspired his faith in the first place? Does he have family? How did his constant wandering affect them?
In telling the story of globe-trotting evangelist Arthur Blessitt, director Matthew Crouch allows Christian priorities to gloss over details that a more objective filmmaker would consider essential.
Audience Reviews for The Cross(The Cross: The Arthur Blessitt Story)
I loved this movie! I loved the editing, and to me, it revealed what I wanted to know. That this man has been transformed by his experience for real. For the budget, I was amazed and would and will gladly go pay to see it again. I have recommended it to everyone I know. It didn't tell as much about the man, because the message of the cross is laying down your life so God can work in and through you to love others. To me, those who were looking for more of Blessitt, didn't realize that if it were all about Blessitt, there would be no story or movie to make. It would be a man on his own mission.
=) Well done!
My husband was talking about this film and interested in the details before it ever came out, just hearing about what this man has been through. We have not stopped talking about it yet. I have never been impacted by a movie like this, other than when Fireproof came out.
THE CROSS MOVIE A LIFE CHANGING EXPERIENCE
You will never, never, never forget this movie or this man. Be Amazed by a Compelling story of the power of love.Pressing on against all odds,to fulfill a destiny and witness the delivering hand of God intervene time and time again. "Only a fool says there is no God." Witness a man of pure love and unwaviering faith, that has stood the tests of his time, who has finished his course with joy.
RUN, DON'T WALK, YOU WILL NEVER BE THE SAME AGAIN.!!!
Don't listen to the soul dead critics of the national news media, they
wouldn't recognize truth and virtue, under any circumstances.
[font=Times New Roman][size=3][color=indigo][b]A truly beautiful movie that portrays an honest account of what Christianity is all about. Not quite sure what movie Nathan, Kyle, Cary and Tim were reviewing ? guys, possibly it would be wise to actually see a movie before commenting?[/b][/color][/size][/font]
