The struggle with Christian Movies

I will admit I wish I had more patience with Christian movies. They already have a reputation for being lower in standards overall. Occasionally there is that so-called Christian movie which surprises everyone. This one is not one of those.

The Fight Within

What can I say? I could not make it through this film. Every intention of the film is noble. But the performance is mixed with the dialogue that is just what it is… I hate to be too critical but I just don’t have the patience. That is my fight within. My love hate relationship with Christian movies is right here.

The good:

The fight scenes are good. There’s just good fighting in here. Maybe we could have just had a large musical montage of the fight scenes.

I hate to be so critical, but honestly this was a fast-forwarding kind of movie for me. And I can tell you that I probably didn’t miss anything. The plot is easy enough to watch the entire thing in fast forward and know exactly what they’re saying, or get a pretty good idea.

Do you struggle with Christian movies? What are some of the best Christian movies you have seen? Let me know in the comments section below.

  1. I just finished the movie “Overcomer” by the the number one Christian movie team in the country. Oh boy. It was a perfect illustration of what I am saying. I want to cheer for it but… A sermon illustration stretched out into a long movie. I wonder about casting choices, dialogue choices, and so much more.

    I am super proud of anyone who makes a movie to share the Good News. I just struggle with this movie. I can’t honestly say that I enjoyed it, to be frank.
