This might be the worst movie I have ever seen.

This film is just absolute garbage. While the technical side of the film is well done, the camera work, the lighting, etc. The story and the performances of the actors is just laughable.

The film centers around a family that has problems, which mostly come in the form of a dad character who is a little too into his work. The mom and the daughter seem to play victim to this. From there the mother meets a wise older lady that teaches her how to pray and the movie goes pretty much as you would predict from there with one minor exception that I think makes the story worse.

(SPOILER STARTS HERE) - The Father gets caught skimming from work and is fired. That sends him down a spiral and he learns to accept Jesus and prayer into his life and what not. That bothers me because the only reason his character is repentant is because he got caught. Had he not gotten caught but rather came to see the error of his ways on his own that would have made for a much better story. EVERYONE is sorry after they get caught.

Poor acting, worse pacing, and a predictable story make this a movie to miss for sure.

Victories don't happen by accident

This review contains some plot points, but the film is not really plot driven per se.

The movie opens with a narration by Miss Clara (Karen Abercrombie). Her husband, who had worked in a war room had died. She creates a prayer closet which she calls her "war room." Tony (T.C. Stallings) and Elizabeth (Priscilla C. Shirer) have martial problems. Elizabeth is a real estate agent who is selling Miss Clara's home. Clara has decided to take Elizabeth under her wing.

I don't need to go any further at this point. You pretty much know the rest as God answers all prayers to those who know how to prayer correctly according to the Bible. There are themes of "paying it forward" and that "God is in control."

The film is inspirational and my African-American friends thought if I watched this film, I would become a believer. My sister believes if everyone listens to country music, America would be great. This is another re-invent Christianity production complete with a church campaign kit, just like "Do You Believe" where a pastor ponders the cross for the first time in his life... and please buy the church kit which always give me mixed feelings on people profiting off the Bible.

The end of the film closes with a prayer for America, while having good intentions and being inspirational, doesn't leave much room for religious diversity. 5 stars as a spiritual film.

Its the message the counts

Its a shame that this film has been negatively criticized the way it has been. This just demonstrates that some wish to close off their ears and not wish to hear the message behind the film. Its not the acting that should matter but the message itself. Its sad that in a world where there is so much hurting, some people do not wish to turn to prayer. It is perhaps the one thing that we need more than anything else.

This movie should not solely target Christians but more especially it should reach non-Christians. I think that was the main purpose behind making this film. Its terribly sad that the world nowadays no longer wants to turn their eyes to the maker. They just want to turn to things that will not help them spiritually. I know who I am in the eyes of my maker and I will not waste an opportunity criticizing this film. Of course, there may have been one or two things that were not perfect about it but should not mean that we should ignore the underlying message behind it. What the world needs now more than ever is to repent and turn their eyes towards Jesus. I pray that film should not simply be a tool for criticism but it should reach those that are lost and continuing to hurt out there. I wish to reiterate that its not acting that counts but the message itself.
