Movie Info

SYNOPSIS: Tony and Elizabeth Jordan have it all-great jobs, a beautiful daughter, and their dream house. But appearances can be deceiving. Tony and Elizabeth Jordan's world is actually crumbling under the strain of a failing marriage. While Tony basks in his professional success and flirts with temptation, Elizabeth resigns herself to increasing bitterness. But their lives take an unexpected turn when Elizabeth meets her newest client, Miss Clara, and is challenged to establish a "war room" and a battle plan of prayer for her family. As Elizabeth tries to fight for her family, Tony's hidden struggles come to light. Tony must decide if he will make amends to his family and prove Miss Clara's wisdom that victories don't come by accident. (C) Sonymore

Critic Reviews for War Room

All Critics (32) | Top Critics (10)

Kendrick's view of Christian devotion involves only trivial sacrifices and offers a gospel of self-help that masks its wider doctrinal implications.

Top Critic

An affluent African-American family is going through some domestic issues: Husband loses job, daughter is being ignored, mother has a foot-odour situation - the usual. The answer? Submit to a resurrected carpenter.

Top Critic

War Room is the most slickly made faith-based film I've seen yet in terms of production values, but that doesn't make it quote-unquote good, per se.

It's clear that the film, though proselytizing only at itself, is at least savvy enough to realize that "itself" doesn't necessarily look like Mike Huckabee or Pat Robertson.

By far the most slickly produced and insistently evangelical movie yet from the sibling team of Alex and Stephen Kendrick.

Top Critic

Much of what follows is turgid and, for non-believers, ridiculous.

Audience Reviews for War Room

This is an evangelical movie that will do nothing to convince those not already converted to its message, which, if you think about it, is a pretty shoddy sort of evangelism.

Super Reviewer

Better than I expected for a faith-based film. I gave it an extra half star because I had friends work on it and it was filmed in my home town. From the creators of "Fireproof" and "Courageous". It's a movie for "Christians" by Christians with a few funny moments, a few ridiculous/stupid moments, and a lot of drama moments. It keeps your attention enough to get through it. Rating: 6 / 10

Oh wow. It's an intense Rollercoaster drama movie. I loved it. Had me thinking about my prayer life. Had me very emotional. Should have watched it sooner.
