Critic Reviews for Not Today
Jon Van Dyke's "Not Today" doesn't qualify as a good movie, but it's built on an admirable foundation of good intentions.
Writer-director Jon Van Dyke offers rugged production values, and his real agenda - getting Christian viewers to help end sex trafficking - mires the movie in self-conscious angst and speeches.
Vitally important theme unstrung by shaky direction, writing and acting and a major flaw in subtitling.
Audience Reviews for Not Today
While the issue addressed in this film is important, it would have been much better served as a documentary which would validate the call to action that was intended at the end of this film. Not only was the acting poor and the direction uneven and choppy, the overt preaching and Christian overtones made me feel duped. This film would be better slated as a Christian film. The little girl the film is based around was the ONLY saving part of the film. The end of the film, with all the actors and the director speaking out of character and calling for action, was out of place and I found the entire film manipulative.
Greast movie. The story is well done and the actor played there character really well. I would highly recommend everyone seeing this movie in the theaters.
I am friends with the director and producer, so my opinion is biased. I'll say that the movie is well intentioned and tries to spread an important message, but is barely digestible. The directing is good, the writing not so much. I feel, unfortunately( or fortunately, depending on your point of view) this movie was made by Christians for Christians.
