This is awful filmmaking, from trite writing of one-dimensional characters to even triter (which spell-check is telling me is not a word) dialogue.

Will likely get a mildly, if unenthusiastic, passing grade from its target audience, but for the non-believers, it's going to prove a tough and condescending experience.

Has a decided agenda but still manages to be entertaining

Lambasts reason, and celebrates Christianity unabashedly, which is a shame, because it has an opportunity to really challenge its target audience.

Continually, I bemoan the fact that viewers of faith - and I'm among them - are under-served when it comes to high-quality faith-based films.

Ban this sick filth.

April 16, 2014
A sloppily written, badly argued, unevenly acted film about a first-year college student who tries to prove the existence of God within weeks of setting foot on campus.
Susan Granger
SSG Syndicate
April 15, 2014
The prostelytizing concept immediately loses credibility because no teacher at a legitimate academic institution would make that demand, augmenting it with threat of failure.
Full Review | Original Score: 3/10

Teen-friendly, faith-based movie is heavy on dogma.

Despite the campus setting, little about the story is intelligently designed.

Dubious religious content aside, God's Not Dead is, above all, a dismal piece of filmmaking.

Any just God would likely recoil from the ham-fisted and spurious defense put forth in this film.

It's not just bad filmmaking; it's bad Christianity.

Even by the rather lax standards of the Christian film industry, God's Not Dead is a disaster.

God may not be dead, but I'd be willing to wager this movie at least gave him a faint wave of nausea.

The film is slickly produced, with a competent cast, and although it sometimes stacks the deck shamelessly in defense of its credo, it does allow a few dissenting voices to slip into the debate.
Mike McGranaghan
Film Racket
March 24, 2014
While it most certainly has some very good qualities, it is ultimately undone - at least for general audiences - by a completely unsubtle desire to do more than simply tell a meaningful story; it wants to rock the world.

The Almighty deserves better advocacy than he gets in this typically ham-fisted Christian campus melodrama.

The angriest faith-based film in recent memory

Clunky in spots? Yes. Preachy throughout? Lord, yes. Compelling to those who know what they are paying for? Without a doubt. (Full Content Review for Parents also Available)
