The Shack (2017)
Critic Consensus: The Shack's undeniably worthy message is ill-served by a script that confuses spiritual uplift with melodramatic clichés and heavy-handed sermonizing.

Critic Reviews for The Shack
It's one of those movies where you'll either decide to give in right away and sob for two hours straight or opt to fight it while your resentment slowly simmers to a rolling boil.
Based on the sleeper bestseller by Canadian author William P. Young, The Shack offers an enlightening - if dispiriting - vantage on contemporary, non-denominational Christianity.
The Shack wants to be a sincere exploration of faith and forgiveness but somehow manages to be both too innocuous and too off-putting for its own good.
"The Shack" is a grief-packed journey through loss, bargaining and acceptance that feels like an overly long church sermon.
Most of its running time is taken with mollifying conversations between Mack and the movie's New Age-meets-Bible Belt oversimplifications of the Holy Trinity. It fits right into a long tradition of quasi-mystical pseudo-parables.
Audience Reviews for The Shack
If you want to make your Friday more interesting, how about you go see either a different movie or just do whatever you do in common because The Shack isn't worth seeing or even worth sending a little penny. I'm like serious, The Shack never attempts to shine in any sort of way and the actors were killing themselves during production of this film.
