So we went to the movie The Grace Card this last weekend. Okay, it’s not a total blockbuster hit; but it’s not a miss fire either.
After looking over some reviews by the critics (mind the name here) it seemed like it was going to be awful. However, my wife talked to some of her friends who had seen it and they made it seem like it was one of the best movies ever made!
Reality check…it wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible either.
The acting was sub-par (but better than Fireproof), same with the writing (on both accounts). It was a decent movie with a great and needed message. Hollywood is not, at this point, going to put their money into a “Christian” film; so we get the lower budget films right now. The actors need to learn how to improve; own the role, don’t let the writer own it. As far as this line of movies being made is going, I would say that The Grace Card is a good sign of improvement. Are they there yet…not quite, but they’re making progress and I’m happy with that.
If you haven’t seen the movie yet go and see it, you’ll cry by the end (and I’m man enough to admit it). I’m happy that I saw this one and am excited for the next.
