2.0 out of 5 starsHorrible acting. Scary Jesus.
Verified purchase
Okay. I totally understand the importance of the movie and I also understand that some people have good reviews based on their faith while some have horrible views based on a womans rights to choose. As a non biased reviewer the acting is horrible. "God" is portrayed as a kind of creepy and sobbing old man who looks like he may have a touched van. The young girl does okay, she has a kinda obscure emotionless face at all times. She looks bored like she doesn't want to be in the movie. If you're going to make a movie to try and persuade people to follow your agenda have characters who are relatable. Crying Jesus daddy is gross.

The one good thing is the African american girl in the waiting room. She was a pretty developed character and easily connectable.

1.0 out of 5 starsPro-life Film instead of Quality Cinema
Verified purchase
A seriously heavy-handed movie. I discovered this when only a few minutes into this film, the "God" character freaks and starts weeping about how "they're killing his babies." This film seems to bludgeon you in the head with it's pro-life message instead of making any effort to actually persuade you to this way of thinking. Highly disappointing.

5.0 out of 5 starsI am a near abortion survivor.
Verified purchase
Yes, I am a near abortion survivor. As I near my 70th year of life, I thank my father for refusing to let my "mother" have a (then illegal) abortion. While I endure a few Alcohol Fetal Syndrome effects from her drunkenes, I AM ALIVE!

Read the one-star reviews, and sense WHO is behind them.

5.0 out of 5 starsExcellent film on all levels
Verified purchase
This movie is absolutely worth watching if you want a real and genuine look at one of the most difficult situations a young girl, or any woman can face. The only thing I'll criticize is the brief conversation between Alison and the nurse dressed in all pink. Parts of the nurse's monologue at the girl sounded like something that would be more internal rather than something shared with a teenager who is trying to make a decision. Overall, the acting gave this film a realness and honesty which I thought brought the viewer into the whole situation as a spectator given plenty of room to think. In fact, I would go as far as to say that it portrays very well what actually happens at and in front of these places. I was relieved to see there wasn't a need for any shock effects or gore. This film is very contemplative and focuses on how a choice is or can be made. It portrays some of the most common situations which bring women to a place like this. I also appreciated the spiritual aspect of it through the conversations with God which were very intimate and personal. Much of it sounded like the help sidewalk counselors offer to women who are conflicted and think there is no way out but to end the lives of their preborn children.

4.0 out of 5 starsFlawed film, but a decent way of giving some good thought to the problem of abortion
Verified purchase
I would like to make clear that I am Christian, and pro-life, so I very much appreciated the sensitive way this film portrayed some of the characters and situations. On the other hand, I am always so disappointed that Christian movies can't seem to get real life right. The sweetness of the love that God has for us, and mothers have for their children is just right in this film, the anger at dealing with bad choices and difficult situations is right, but the stereotyped characters without development is just wrong, so typical of religious themed movies. Overall, good message, gave me tears, feel good movie, with some serious flaws that can't be overlooked, sadly. I watched this with my teens to talk about the issues presented, sex before marriage, pregnancy, abortion, racist/therapist/cat lady stereotypes, and images of God. It was a good film for presenting talking points with teens, but not one that I am proud of, as a Christian.

3.0 out of 5 starsbetter than expected
Verified purchase
I've seen this guy's Encounter movies, I liked them okay.
All the movies have the problem of presuming to know what God would say, but not in creative way, just reusing the main Christian arguments for it.
Those arguments are correct, I think, but I believe God would be more personal.
People are complaining about the acting, but actually I thought most of it was good. My main complaint is how affected Bruce is, he doesn't play Jesus in the most passionate way.
And Allison was written to be kind of dumb, I thought. Honestly her choice should have been made in the first half of the film, there was no reason to drag it out, most girls aren't so committed they'd resist a direct appeal from God. Or multiple people.
I do think Lucretia and Dee were the best part of it.
But on the plus side, some of the dialogue was better than I expected. Bruce doesn't usually do sassy, but it worked a lot better that way. And some moments were meaningful.
All in all, enjoyable, but not spectacular.

1.0 out of 5 starsRight Winger Propaganda Carp
Verified purchase
What a bias and terrible movie. This is a bias pro-life propaganda movie! Wake-up people, we are in 2019. The right-winger fanatics, have been trying to ban abortion, since before my time! It will NEVER HAPPEN! What a women does with her body is no ones business and it should not play a role in politics!
