As the film's saccharine sanctimoniousness swells, the intendedly God-awesome turns to the increasingly God-awful.

I wished it wasn't targeting its demographic so hard, it felt like things were forced in there, but I still enjoyed it.

It's moving, painful, to watch...because there's such a good cast and such a compelling story, a lot of this works...but it's undermined, a little heavy-handed when it didn't need to be...still, one of the best faith-based movies I've seen.

At each and every crossroad, it feels as if you hit a brick wall with a red neon message scrolled before you just in case you missed what was happening. With contrived and sometimes stilted situations, the film lost its verve.

Better directed and better acted than other examples of the genre I have taken in, it earns a closer look. However, what really hurts BREAKTHROUGH for me as a work of film, though, is its repeated handwaving at truly complex issues.

...divine and soul-searching. Breakthrough is warmly inviting for its ability to be honest, moving, melancholy, and deliver its truthfulness in profound revelation.

Finally, there is a film that truly exemplifies what it means to have faith.

Barely fresh. Chrissy Metz rocks. Other than her performance, this is a faith-based flick that often falls through its own ice. Definitely one for the Hallmark TV movie of the week crowd.
