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.
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.
