The Shack is an honest consideration of a Christian theological explanation for why bad things happen to good people. If you loved the book, I think you will be able to say the film surpasses it.

The Shack successfully manages to challenge the narrow conceptions of what a Christian looks or sounds like - hence all of the debate and controversy.

Its idea that God loves us enough to reach out to every one of us in our the way we are best able to understand is genuinely touching.

This is a faith-based movie that uses a heavy hand to pound viewers with its religious messages. That's a shame because when the film isn't preaching, the story of how someone deals with great loss is touching and moving.

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.

A few of the discussions are quite knotty, but the whole thing is still too steeped in American mawkishness to have a chance with anyone unpersuaded by that form of worship.

This is more of a sermon than a movie, so its appeal will very much depend on where you stand on that kind of thing.
