Not up to the level of "Facing the Giants" or "Fireproof" but a pretty amazing first try

Entertainment Spectrum

This passionate faith-based movie offers moral encouragement and gives people an altruistic goal worth achieving. It deserves to be ranked alongside similar message-driven movies as "Facing the Giants" and "Fireproof."

A modern morality play offering a satisfying reminder about the real meaning of forgiveness.

Robert W. Butler
Kansas City Star

This effort from writer/director David G. Evans gets points for soft-peddling dogma in favor of human stories. And the film benefits from a compelling performance by Michael Joiner, a Kansas City-based stand-up comic who provides a watchable center.

This is an unpretentious but sincere film with quiet power, and its final scenes are moving and inspirational.

Despite its lapse into melodrama, this faith-based drama is surprisingly effective.

A low-budget Christian indie that just clears the runway on the sincerity of its performances and inclusiveness of its message.

Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)

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.

Dragged down by earnest but amateurish performances and an overall Afterschool Special vibe

Arkansas Democrat-Gazette

...not so much a bad movie as a timid one, in that it fails to fulfill the potential of its honestly not bad script, which raises some difficult questions ... and its denouement, however predictable, is genuinely moving.

Movie goers likely will look over The Grace Card's entertainment value to focus on this simple prescription for how to gracefully love your neighbor.

Blessed with fine performances, credible dialogue and slick production values that belie a reportedly paltry budget, The Grace Card ranks among the better religious-themed indies released in recent years.

The film is powerful when operating on the personal level of two men working out faith, but disappointing that their story is buried in a heavy-handed, manipulative plot.

It's OK to put out a movie with a message. But rendering even potentially dramatic stories so inoffensive that they bear no relation to reality makes for middling drama.

"The Grace Card" is a Christian drama about a racist cop and his gospel-preaching partner who . . . hey, wait a second. Where are you going?

The movie amounts to a cinematic sermon that, like many of those given in houses of worship, has a good-hearted message that will be difficult to deliver to a snoozing audience.

Chris Hewitt (St. Paul)

The latest in the market-a-movie-to-churches trend, "The Grace Card" has the ring of a sermon about it.

The filmmakers seem more interested in coddling the converted than ministering to sinners.
