I finally saw this movie (no, I didn't buy it or
download it illegally). I thought it was weak. I
couldn't believe this is what all the excitement was about.
This movie was poorly made. It was utter nonsense with a soft story. Another futile Hollywood attempt at casting
doubt on Christianity in a very unentertaining, predictable foray into sacrilege. This film doesn't encourage people to believe. It encourages them to disbelieve.
The whole movie Tom Hanks looked like he is
struggling to move (ironically, more than the elderly man with the cane, who was
clearly the star of this insanity-fest).
Parts of the film were outright creepy. They sought
to malign Christianity with the worst characterizations possible and it showed.
The poor special efx at certain points didn't help
either. One minute the film looked big budget, the next low budget. Not a good
mix. Coupled with the abundant conspiracy theories not based in reality, this
film was a mess.
Christians should not get worked up when Hollywood
does such things. When you don't buy their movies, they lose hundreds of
millions of dollars on top of what they made or didn't make.
