Critic Reviews for The Second Chance
As divided as the two very different churches at its center, The Second Chance reps an uneasy marriage of spiritual conviction and dramatic expedience.
[The film is] designed to launch Christian pop singer Michael W. Smith as a movie brand name. It doesn't really succeed at that, but it does manage to send a positive message in a pretty polished movie, a message aimed at regular church-goers.
[The film is] sabotaged by hackneyed dialogue, sluggish pacing and a listless performance by Smith, who only springs to life when he's singing.
A movie-of-the-week treatment of race and class, the film credibly portrays the day-to-day workings of an urban ministry.
It's not the message that bothered me but the obvious way in which it's delivered.
Second Chance delivers its parable of spiritual growth with enough tender nuance that it doesn't merely preach to the choir.
Audience Reviews for The Second Chance
I love the arogance of the pastors, the leasson they learned: "love your enemy." The humility when they washed one another's feet. That part brought me to tears. I love how the white pastor was clueless and ignorant, caught up in his own little world, and the black pastor who cared deeply for the drug dealers and prostitutes.
A modest Jesus-fish-out-of-water story.
Pretty Well done, good message and not dumbed down... i liked it
