Critic Reviews for Joshua
It's a persuasive spiritual journey, sentimental at times but never hopelessly cloying.
Christians sensitive to a reductionist view of their Lord as a luv-spreading Dr. Feelgood or omnipotent slacker will feel vastly more affronted than secularists, who might even praise God for delivering such an instant camp classic.
Overall, it's a very entertaining, thought-provoking film with a simple message: God is love.
The film falls short on tension, eloquence, spiritual challenge -- things that have made the original New Testament stories so compelling for 20 centuries.
The script covers huge, heavy topics in a bland, surfacey way that doesn't offer any insight into why, for instance, good things happen to bad people.
Audience Reviews for Joshua
I don't want to have a disparaging attitude toward Christian entertainment in general, but this movie, for all its moral merits, seems aimed at a very narrow audience. Parts of it are just so cheesy and contrived, and this guy is nothing like how I would see Jesus...
This is a wonderful, warm modern parable, based on a book by joseph Girzone, who has a series of book based on Joshua, which transilated means jesus. If you are religous, you will truely enjoy this movie, and even if you aren't, has important lessons for all of us.
F Murray Abraham is the only reason this movie was worth sitting through (and so was lack of sleep) this movie was slightly creepy actually
