Perhaps there are Christians who will appreciate The Shack's Oprahfied universal heaven, wherein no bad deed goes punished. But it made us pine for the Book of Job God to spitefully hurl leviathans and behemoths.

The film deals in starkly spiritual terms with the issues of loss, hatred and forgiveness, and raises a lot of common questions about who's side God is on...In a brave performance, Worthington brings a salty edge to his character.

It's a film that asks the right questions, but the answers aren't really dramatically persuasive.

Good intentions, but far too earnest to appeal to anyone beyond those who believe you can fight a true crisis of the soul with a campfire and some Kumbaya.

Despite the coolest deity casting since Dogma's Alanis Morrisette, this faith-based fantasy won't win over many non-believers or cinematic admirers.
