Perhaps the problem with this work is it's trying very hard to make faith sexier than the Scarface lifestyle.
Full Review | Original Score: D
November 1, 2013
Solid performances by Ja Rule and Adrienne Bailon combine with an inspirational story to make an enjoyable film.
Full Review | Original Score: 6/10

You won't believe a second of it.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 25, 2013
To call the acting amateurish does a disservice to hard-working amateurs everywhere.
Full Review | Original Score: 0.5/5
October 25, 2013
Drug dealer's conversion story appeals to faith audiences.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/5
October 23, 2013
For a religion started by a martyred egalitarian hippie who hung out with lepers and prostitutes and was executed by The Man, these supposed adherents sure seem obsessed with Earthly wealth. Bad movie, but a fascinating watch.
Full Review | Original Score: D+

Even having God on the production team can't save this 'Church Girl' from its heavy-handed sermonizing.
October 21, 2013
For myself and most folks expecting a movie, it is too transparent an infomercial for the church to move the mountain.
Full Review | Original Score: 2/4
October 18, 2013
It egregiously lacks subtlety and too often resorts to excessive sermonizing.
October 18, 2013
This overlong drama plays like a threefold infomercial: for Christianity, the cheesy resort chain Sandals and Jeff "Ja Rule" Atkins, the rapper-turned-actor playing drug kingpin Miles Montego.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 18, 2013
Screenwriter Galley Molina based the film on his own experience, going from drug pusher to minister, but, for all that, this cliche-besotted film feels somehow synthetic in the extreme.
October 17, 2013
A message film with the narrative sophistication of a recruiting pamphlet.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 17, 2013
Suffers from the same ills as too many movies that preach to the choir: a laborious length, formulaic plot and dialogue and, disappointing for a film that stars a rapper, a stock score.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 17, 2013
We're apparently supposed to root for these two to make it, although Vanessa is outlandishly jealous and pushy.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/4
October 17, 2013
There is no reason a film with an agenda can't also be engaging or thought-provoking. But what we have here is not so much a movie as a blunt Sunday sermon.
Full Review | Original Score: 1/5
October 17, 2013
The creakiness of its storytelling and its unabashed preachiness betray its origins as a film designed to proselytize more than entertain. It fails on both levels.
Full Review | Original Score: 1.5/5
October 17, 2013
Despite appealing performances and glossy production values, this faith-based drama has the feel of a lengthy church sermon.
October 15, 2013
In narrative and aesthetic terms, there's something unholy about its mixture of inane clichés, shallow music-video glossiness, and incessant preaching.
