This Is Us regular Chrissy Metz makes her presence felt as the boy's mum, and Topher Grace and Josh Lucas bring modest star power to a slick if sometimes slushy against-the-odds drama that's perfectly watchable, whether you subscribe to its claims or not.

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.

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

Shallow - yet inspirational - aimed directly at an evangelical Christian audience.

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.

Breakthrough is about more than faith. A universal film that combines hope, love, community and God to inspire, reflect and rejoice. This might not be a breakout film but might help others have a breakthrough.

one of the more authentically moving entries in the genre, fueled by a gripping lead performance from "This Is Us" star Chrissy Metz.

Sustenance for the faith-based and an interesting look at a devout culture for non-believers.

We may not agree on why John recovers. This cast makes us glad and relieved that he does, even if the story veers into smugness that undermines its message.

I found this film a deeply moving and powerful story of faith. Even though I had read the book and met the real people and the cast, I wept more than once during the film.

Franklin has succeeded by placing quality actors in the service of stories that manage to include some levels of nuance that make them appealing to audiences beyond the proverbial choir.

Chrissy Metz's performance and songwriter Diane Warren's "I'm Standing With You," lift up this genuine, moving, lovely film.

Grab some tissues before seeing this sharply drawn tale of a community in crisis.

Though the film is certainly a step in the right direction, it is still not particularly dynamic.
April 17, 2019
Nothing spectacular in terms of moviemaking but otherwise done well and hitting the right emotional notes, "Breakthrough" rates as a 6 out of 10. (Full Content Review for Parents - Violence, Suspenseful Scenes, etc. - also Available)

"Breakthrough" might be the first faith-based Hollywood film with genuine crossover appeal.
