As directed by Steven Gomer, the film is hampered by uneven and sometimes awkward pacing. A few emotional scenes are overly telegraphed. When a sad event occurs, the violins literally kick in.
All Saints is rather fascinating in its relationship to faith and religion. It's a film not so much about scripture as it is about community.
[It] certainly doesn't neglect its religious themes. But it mainly stresses the humanity of its characters and the importance of community ties. It does this in a manner that is never heavy-handed, making the true-life tale all the more inspiring.
All Saints feels like a bit of a miracle. It's a faith-based movie inspired by a true story that lets its dramatic moments unfold without relying on melodrama.
Steve Gomer's fine fact-based, faith-based film showcases a career-highlight performance by John Corbett.
It's a story worth knowing, and churches, big and small, can learn its lessons about faith, community, relationships, and serving others.
It is theology-challenging to encounter a story where the rousing rescue doesn't come. Or at least not in the way we expect.
Touching and entertaining. The surprising element of All Saints is its religious message, which isn't as obvious as you'd expect.
A vanishing rarity: a film that explores the Christian ideal in a way that is attractive regardless of viewers' faith or lack thereof, while challenging believers to live up to that ideal.
Acting at the top saves the day-by Corbett, old pro Barry Corbin as the town curmudgeon, and (especially) Nelson Lee as the leader of the refugees.
Based on a true story, this film is sure to evoke admiration, if not converts.
Inspiring True Story That Will Amaze
All Saints pushes itself a little too hard to make people actually love it, but they, at least, have done things correctly even if the pressure to making people love the film couldn't work. It makes up what seems to be an impressing film and that's what it is actually.
