- I LOVE this movie!!!!!! by Nancy on 3/13/2014
This movie has helped me tremendously!! It is so very encouraging!!! When I feel down and in despair, I just watch this movie an1d Jesus always encourages me and helps me feel better about myself and He gives me hope to not give up. I especially enjoy what Jesus tells the young girl who is running away from home because she was so badly abused and she doesn't know what to do with her life. This movie addresses the subject about abuse so well, it is a very healing movie for any abused woman. Bruce Marchiano did a great job in this movie. It is one of my very favorite movies of all time!
- Perfect for a first Christian movie by Richard on 1/30/2014
As a very recent believer, I watched this movie and loved it! The theme is genius and the way they get to the plot is great, Jesus even has a name tag. Although the movie is not a Hollywood blockbuster (Thank GOD!) it is entertaining and yet the message of how we are all part of God's plan will touch those who watch it.
- great way to let God into your living room by chris on 12/1/2012
This is by far my favorite movie. It allows you to put your feet into everyones shoes, even Jesus' and feel each persons pain, and relate it to your own life. Jesus' love for each person, and His sacrifice are revealed as His insight into others lives cuts to the heart of each person, bringing out our humilty, pride, and fear.
- Better than "Titanic", "Harry Potter", and "The Godfather" ! by Al on 11/21/2012
Let's put it this way; EVERY young non believer I've given this movie to as a gift (and that's a lot of people) - loved it. They found it enlightenting, inspiring, and life changing. They learned things they did not know they did not know.
- Targets many scenarios by kay on 10/17/2012
There is something for everyone to connect to in this story.
It shows how decisions people make effect the outcome of life. The movie shows how others treat you can effect you throughout your life whether you realize it or not. It was a thought provoking movie for all ages and touch on various lifestyles.
