With its strong performances, musical and otherwise, this romantic melodrama is many cuts above the faith-based norm.
The performances are uniformly fine, which keeps things involving. Powell, in particular, is terrific.
A faith-based parable that draws from the Bible as much as it does from every perils-of-showbiz cliché in the book.
A ceaseless, hurtin' tune of a music-driven romantic drama, "The Song" plays out its tired refrain with all the subtlety of a Sunday sermon.
The actors, none of whom have much experience, are quite convincing, but the story - Jed falls, then sees the error of his ways - is an oft-told one.
Predictable, faith-centric film about marital fidelity.
...ultimately fails as a crossover evangelism tool in that it's hard to imagine it even grazing the heathen consciousness. But the choir will no doubt enjoy parts of it.
The Song starts like some of its clunkier faith-based predecessors. We soon learn it boasts both fine music and a sense of how temptation can rock even a strong marriage.
If wisdom isn't one of your character's defining traits, should Solomon really be your model?
Watching The Song is like listening to rock music on a religious station; you think, "Not bad for Christian radio."
Normally, you can't lose with good material. Although "The Song" has plenty of sincerity and decent tunes going for it, it slips away from its message when it strays too far from its source: the Old Testament's Song of Solomon.
Writer/director Richard Ramsey's The Song is a cut above most faith-based movies in that it focuses on telling a good story in addition to spreading the good word.
