Its screenplay is mostly second-rate soap opera and its direction plodding, with many scenes held, awkwardly, longer than they need to be.
| Original Score: 1.5/4
Steeped in Christian tenets of forgiveness, brotherhood, and prayer, and rife with earnest platitudes about race and family, The Grace Card is one overwrought piece of work.
| Original Score: 2/4
A series of hard-to-swallow coincidences wrap up the story too neatly.
A low-budget Christian indie that just clears the runway on the sincerity of its performances and inclusiveness of its message.
| Original Score: 2.5/4
If it ultimately succumbs to formula, scoring a series of increasingly unlikely plot twists with anthemic contemporary Christian power pop, at least it has the courage of its convictions, and the bravado to suggest solutions to meaningful dilemmas.
| Original Score: 3/4
This Christian-themed domestic melodrama uses race as cheap window dressing for easily digestible bromides and a conclusion as foregone as a Family Circus panel.
