Audience Reviews for Gifted Hands: The Ben Carson Story

½

Typical story of someone who arose above their circumstances to do something amazing. Nothing to complain about here, but nothing spectacular either.

I'd give it 12 stars if I could. It's awful (as in full of awe) to see God flaunted so openly in a Hollywood culture. We know nothing, and are capable of miracles.

The title they almost used for this movie was "Ben Carson: The Dude Who Is A Freaking Boss As A Surgeon In The Whole Universe". But it sounded too prideful.
