News & Interviews for Gospel Hill
Critic Reviews for Gospel Hill
So completely lacking in his eye for revealing detail and his ear for colloquial speech that it feels less like a movie than an incomplete first draft of a well-meaning if unsophisticated essay.
It's a familiar formula: Greedy suits touting high-rise schematics and targeting blue-collar citizens end up locking horns with a local firebrand. Guess who wins?
The potentially thought-provoking concept of historical reconciliation is ill served by a half-baked script that reduces every cliched plot point to jaw-dropping levels of preachiness.
A Sunday school parable about the difference between good versus evil. Can I get an Amen?
Subtleties are thin on the ground, but the elements of social injustice, racial tension and character conflicts make the film engaging enough
Audience Reviews for Gospel Hill
Okay to have on in the background, but not really exciting enough to want to sit and give it your undivided attention. I think I mainly rented this one as Julia Stiles was in it,
Is a well acted movie, but never really rises above feeling like a made for tv film.
A well intentioned movie with mild results. Good enough for the story and a good performance by Danny Glover.
