After nearly two hours of plodding storytelling, and despite an affecting performance by Pulsipher, we know nothing about Amber other than her difficult circumstances and maybe the fact that she likes Rascal Flatts and Scrabble.
What remains unchanged about the director and his team is that craftsmanship is obviously not a critical concern for them.
Reverence for God and the church: Check. Patriotism and the highest regard for military service: Check. Country music: Check. NASCAR racing: Check... The only thing missing from God Bless the Broken Road is compelling or believable drama.
The characters for the most part play inspirational pawns more than three-dimensional people.
Like nine out of 10 faith-based films, it lets the message crowd out the other elements of good art: character development, thematic complexity, even basics such as a compelling conflict.
A simplistic, sermonizing parable strictly for the Bible-thumping demographic.
Heavy themes, war violence in keep-the-faith drama.
A good cast can't turn this grieving faith-based drama from Nutrasweet to bittersweet.
Rams home its message without the slightest shred of subtlety, in the process turning its characters into caricatures and sacrificing honest drama for cliché-ridden sermonizing.
The Christian-themed drama God Bless the Broken Road wears its earnest heart on its sleeve, and isn't afraid to show it.
