Critic Reviews for The Other Side of Heaven
Captures a breathtaking exotic landscape cluttered only by the smugness of its characters.
Your stomach for Heaven depends largely on your appetite for canned corn.
As exciting as all this exoticism might sound to the typical Pax viewer, the rest of us will be lulled into a coma.
Handsome and sincere but slightly awkward in its combination of entertainment and evangelical boosterism.
The film's implicit premise is that the faith of the Tonga people is in every way inferior to that of John.
Obstacles are too easily overcome and there isn't much in the way of character development in the script.
Audience Reviews for The Other Side of Heaven
What a great "story". It is quite remarkable how much down played the letters that John wrote home were. He was going through these huge dramas and yet it was so basic in the letters. Very admirable...
Neat. I like Tonga.
I have a few complaints about the choices made on the storyboard, but it's a REALLY good movie.
