There's so much of airports, taxis and trains that I was left with the thought that a message about the shortcomings of deities and church-going isn't best conveyed in conveyances.

Director Gus Holwerda does his best to add tension to the mostly tame travelogue. But damned if The Unbelievers doesn't find a few new converts.

In its reliance on sloganeering in place of substantive debate, The Unbelievers winds up being almost as insular as any dogmatic religious group. Instead of opening viewers' minds, it's just preaching to the choir.

It ably captures the provocative open forums that Richard Dawkins and Lawrence Krauss conduct, but its uneven nature occasionally dulls the effect of these intellectually stimulating conversations.

'Unbelievers' is a high-minded love fest between two deeply committed atheistic intellectuals and their rock star-like fan base.
