Critic Reviews

  • A faith-based drama about redemption and renewal that is blessed with the saving graces of persuasive performances, handsome production values and some undeniably affecting moments of spiritual uplift. More...
  • This inspirational drama, while trafficking in cliches, manages not to deliver its message too heavily. More...
  • Contrived and simplistic. More...
  • Unconditional is a little movie with a big heart, a message film that doesn't taste like medicine. More...
  • If only McCorkle had a bit more, er, faith in his audience. More...
  • A strong story (based on true facts)and an endearing cast make this a good movie experience. More...
  • While strongly acted by stars Lynn Collins and Michael Ealy, it's a clumsy picture that feels like it's going to add up to more than it actually does. More...
  • While the script is a bit thin and the murder mystery overlay feels a bit forced, Unconditional is a gentle and sincere movie about the power and potential of love. And Papa Joe is a character worth getting to know. More...
  • In a year where what divides us seems to get more attention than what unites us, it's enough to restore your, well, faith. More...
