As hard as the cast works in turning in solid performances, they fight a losing battle against the largely uninspired story.
| Original Score: 2/4
In bad melodrama, the instant a woman says "You are such a good man, David," to her husband, you know that he isn't.
| Original Score: 1/4
Flatly shot and lit like a cable-TV movie, with a mismatched Franken-score of flowery flourishes and suspense-feigning propulsion, On the 7th Day sadly contains some fine, earnest acting...
This overplotted, underwritten, powerfully dumb soap-thriller has more professionalism than it deserves.
This tawdry, faith-based kidnapping melodrama has a lot to atone for.
Perhaps director Neema Barnette was hired to insulate the movie from charges of misogyny; in the end, On the 7th Day is not about women being "loosed" from the past, but tying those bonds a whole lot tighter.
A contrived and preachy melodrama produced by big-time televangelist T.D. Jakes.
"Woman" is in essence an earnestly competent, slightly overcooked B-movie potboiler, with ideas of faith occasionally added to frame the story as parable.
| Original Score: 3/5
An attractive cast act out a story of kidnapping and adultery under TV-style directing.
