I'm not a critic, and I rarely rate anything online, but I felt this is one time that I really wanted to. To all those armchair critics that are worried about cinematic elegance, and expect a film that portrays God as a disinterested figure who only shows up in history books....lighten up please. As someone that read the book when it came out, this is the rare moment when a book makes it to screen while losing so little that made it profound. And as a Christian (yes, I'm one of THOSE), this move softens your heart (if you let it) in a way that allows you to experience the kind of relationship with God that way He intended and Jesus modeled for us before He died for our sins and freed us. Anyone that has reviewed this negatively must have went into the movie with their heart hard and their minds already made up. Anyone yet to see this movie, believer or not, owes it to themselves to open up their heart as they enter the theater. If not for an opportunity to break down some of the walls we put between us and God, but at least to experience the emotional rollercoaster that hollywood seldom provides these days. Buy a ticket, get some popcorn and a coke, and don't worry. I left emotionally drained, but uplifted, and ready for a better relationship with God.
