I Still Believe, isn't even well-made propaganda, unlikely to win any converts or even inspire filmgoers to either visit the website or buy the album plugged at the end.

Although it aims to illustrate savory vibes of an uplifting higher power melodrama, from its pulpit the Erwin brothers simply muster up a sluggish Christian romancer that does not have a prayer.

Despite the attractiveness of Apa and Robertson, and their committed performances, they are too often reduced to dialogue preachy enough to be spoofed by Ned Flanders.
March 21, 2020
A true story that's crafted as a compilation of well-worn cinematic clichés and melodramatic beats, but it's offered in a slick manner that never interferes with what's being presented.

"I Still Believe" wants us to believe in the power of love and other cosmic forces. But it requires a big leap of faith from viewers to fill in the blanks.

The film knows its target audience and plays into that throughout. This may then seem heavy handed for those less inclined to believe every word.
March 15, 2020
A sort of "Me, God and the Dying Girl," the movie is well-made (if slow) and features an attractive cast and a lot of amiable (if bland) religious pop-rock.

The film prefers to focus on espousing a particular world view, rather than creating anything more than thinly sketched supporting characters and following a very predictable narrative path.

Sibling directors Andrew and Jon Erwin manage to negate a potentially worthwhile account by approaching subjects like love, faith and death with no introspection or insight.

It feels like the Erwin Brothers were afraid to portray the Camps as flawed human beings.
March 13, 2020
A bitter twist of faith.

Close your eyes and pray, and it'll soon be over.

The meet-cute romance between Apa and Henning is diverting enough, but everything happens so quickly it's difficult to fully engage in the emotional ups and downs of their relationship once Melissa falls ill.
March 12, 2020
The Erwin brothers are simply better filmmakers who package the same tropes in more polished vessels that mostly resemble mainstream offerings.

Those looking for inspiration will find it without looking too hard, but those who don't attend church regularly will be as bored as they would be by a sermon.
March 12, 2020
A deeply manipulative but earnest faith-based tearjerker that will find its audience, no matter what critics might say.
March 12, 2020
Maybe if the Erwins depicted people with half the same detail with which they dote upon Jesus, "I Still Believe" wouldn't feel so insufferably forced to those of us who don't.
March 12, 2020
It's essentially another "Fault in Our Stars" story, only told this time through the religious filter.
March 11, 2020
An overlong, badly paced film filled with cliched dialogue and accented by pleasant yet forgettable music.
March 11, 2020
Despite the extremely dramatic plot developments that occur, nothing seems to carry any real emotional weight.
