Critic Reviews for The Fighting Preacher

All Critics (3) | Fresh (3)

  • The Fighting Preacher, is a bit uneven but overall it succeeds in telling a sentimental true story about tolerance, kindness and how a Christian spirit will win over hate every time.

  • The moments of sincerity and drama tend to work more consistently than the comic beats, but a strong character arc and an instructive message give "Fighting Preacher's" unique story some worthwhile meat

  • Christensen has explored early history of the church before, with pioneer tales like "17 Miracles" and "Ephraim's Rescue," but here his focus is not on great accomplishments but small ones.
