All Saints Reviews
Michael Spurlock runs the All Saints church in Smyrna, Tennessee after recently becoming the new preacher then refugees from Burma come to him for help in need of food and work
their country was ransacked and caught in the middle of a messy war so Spurlock offers to help them by turning the church into a farmland much to the shock of the community
this really feels more like a Hallmark channel movie and there's barely any music throughout but the film's strength is on the ties the community makes for itself to help each other out
Spurlock helps the refugees find purpose again in a new land
Yes, it's faith based, but it's not a recruitment film so the religious overtones are minimal. But there is a lot of gloss on the story so it's easy to feel it's simply skating based the details that might not be positive for the story.
It also provides some insight into the politics of religious organizations and how those politics, as well as money, impact congregations.
The acting is good. The script is even and rational. The film is based on a true story, and the film makers have stayed with the actual story rather than pumping it up with fictional drama.
It's not a great film it's a good film without car chases, or constant shoot outs with bad guys where the body count is close to population of Rhode Island. And the volume level won't cause partial hearing loss..............
For an $8 ticket, you'll get $8 worth of entertainment.
