Bad bad bad... so bad

Don't waste your time on this trash. Horrible acting, horrible story. Unrealistic plot. I couldn't finish the movie.

Let's see...
A tree falls, blocks the road during a mild snowstorm and several people are trapped from reaching a town a few miles away.

They can all find their way in the dark around the abandoned church without any lights.

They have cell phone service (because one girl calls her dad, and one man calls his wife) but no one has brains to call 911 for help?! What the?!

The wife whom was called decided it was intelligent to "test out the all- wheel- drive on her SUV" rather than call for help to those stranded and bring them blankets and food. But she also gets stuck and is now stranded too. Duh! Who didn't see that coming?

And the naive know-it-all young bride thinks it's wise to stick her nose in others' business and think she has the proper expertise to play "marriage counselor and financial advisor" despite her husband advising against it.

Everyone is up in everyone else's personal business and thinks they know more than the other.

That's when I stopped watching. Couldn't take any more. Ugh. How anyone could give this movie more than one star is shocking. I wonder if they even watched the movie or if it was just a nice white- noise during their Sunday afternoon nap.

Inspiring!!

The acting was fabulous. The plot was inspiring and the music was moving. Definitely a new holiday favorite for sure. I read some of the 1 star reviews and was simply taken back at the stupidity of the writers of those reviews. Either they are actually that dumb or maybe they have never lived in the deep woods of the North before. It was extremely realistic for sure. Up here in the North country it is very easy to have a tree fall across a road in heavy snow causing a few cars to pile up behind it especially on a hilly corner such as portrayed in the movie. It is also very common to not be able to go very far in a severe storm as it is very blinding and therefore easy to lose your way so very dangerous. Normal people try to shelter close by in that situation as it is unsafe to try and get any farther away. Also, if you have safe shelter and will be just fine until the storm passes it would be really stupid to call 911 and jeopardize the safety of the rescue personal. It would also be unwise as they need to be assisting people who are actually in a dangerous place. If you have heat and shelter you shelter in place until the storm blows over and then you get out. On top of all this, the leading cause of accidents around here during severe storms are people who are too cocky and confident in their abilities or their vehicles abilities on the road. The mom wanted to help and had a false sense of security as to what her vehicle was capable of. Happens all the time. We see more 4x4 cars being pulled out of accident scenes during storms than you can imagine. You tend to get yourself into messes when you feel too secure and safe. Lastly, autistic kids get focused on something and their mind cannot think past that one thing so they tend to loose themselves in that thought. That is dangerous if they slip past you like he slipped past the baby sitter. How do I know? My son has Aspergers which is a form of autism. You have to try and refocus them as best you can which is something ordinary people are not skilled at because it is not something they live with. So a babysitter would easily have trouble refocusing a child like that and that child could easily slip past her. So everything was very well though out and very well acted. It was also filmed in a nice snowy area that looked just like home so it didn't look staged at all. Most of these Christmas films are staged looking with soap snow etc and therefore look cheesy. Not this movie!! It looked like they were on Oxbow Rd which is right down the road a piece from me!! It was so real I was cold the whole time I watched the movie!! LOL!! Oh, and even the plot was very real. Put 8 strangers in a room together and they will talk and will get to know each other. It is human nature. People are curious by nature and, if you are hurting inside, some people tend to want to talk about their problems to a sympathetic ear. And all 8 changing their lives because of a chance encounter? Yeah, believe it or not that happens all the time. I've seen it happen. My daughter was 17 and driving down the road alone when she saw a friend walking on the side of the road with a stranger. She pulled over to ask if they needed help. They did. Both got in her car. That stranger is her husband!! They fell in love the minute he stepped into her car!! He was 15. He took on several jobs and took accelerated courses in high school just so he could be with her and be the best husband a man could be to a wife. She is now 22 and he is 20 and they have bought their first home together and he is a diesel mechanic and she manages a Red Wing Boot store. All because a friend needed a ride she had a chance meeting with a stranger that changed all our worlds forever! Best son in law ever by the way!! Still waiting on grandkids but that is another chapter for later in the story that God is writing for us! And their chance meeting that changed everyone's lives isn't the only one I've seen and felt myself. I could go on forever. God does make things like this happen so yes, this movie is very very real and very very well acted!! Loved every minute of it!!

Absolutly Loved Christmas Miracle..a Five Star!!
Verified purchase
Christmas Miracle was one of the best Christian Christmas movies I have seen in a very, very long time! I will watch it several times more. Made me root for the people, cry and wish that my 34 year old daughter was here to watch it with me. We were watching as many good ,love, christian and Christmas movies as we could then she Passed suddenly of cancer a week and a half after she had gone in the hospital. Did get to bring her home because she wanted to pass here with her parrot and I, having just me to take care of her as always. Her father had passed over 4 1/2 before.The actors and actresses were all good in it too as well as the singing and music! Loved it!! Thank you for having it on prime, please put more like this on!! I really need these type of movies. Holidays are really going to be hard this year!

Poor writing, poor plot, poor everything

**spoilers**
Really? 5 and 4 star reviews? There's so many holes in the plot. So many poor actors. So many scenes of the poor boy walking over the same piece of road, over and over and over and over and over again. Most characters are very one-dimensional (poor writing, poor plot). T
The mother walks to the church after her supposed all wheel drive suv gets stuck, and the 8 or so people there can't walk back to her car, push her out of the snowbank and get back to civilization? C'mon. So much of the story was unbelievable. What a waste of time.

Delightfully dreckish!

What an absolute Christmas delight! I don't think I've seen such wonderfully vapid Christmas pablum since I was a teen in the 70s watching an Osmond Family Christmas. I especially enjoyed the babbling, incoherent minister-pastor-priest... what-eeevah! with his recollection of the fall from faith … simply wonderful! The acting throughout was brilliant! No wonder that these Christmas movies keep the Canadian economy going! Just pure joy! I must admit that I did feel one pang of angst though … What happened to the babysitter?! She went out into the horribly cold night (replete with 3 inches of snow) and was never seen again!!! And, no one seemed to care!!!

Decent, but nothing more than that
Verified purchase
This is a decent film, but definitely not five stars. There are too many holes in the plot, almost no real resolution, and very unrealistic situations. How do five cars come to the same spot within sixty seconds, but not a single car comes after or before? When they're walking in a supposedly brutal winter storm, almost no snow is falling and they're walking on packed-down snow. And the church is close enough to town for an eight-year-old autistic boy to walk to in fifteen minutes in a "blizzard," yet too far away from town for a bunch of able-bodied adults to cover? If you want to enjoy this, you really have to suspend disbelief and accept silly things. Decent acting and believable characters, but weak story and awful storm simulations.

Nice Christian Themed Christmas adventure story
Verified purchase
I've been building up my library of Christmas DVDs, mostly Christian videos with a few worldly Hallmark show ones tossed in and some animated. I reached the point where there is just nothing on TV worth paying for these days and since mid 2016 I've been without Cable TV (I had a 'few select channels-Sling TV' subscription for a while but no more). Now I have Amazon Prime Video and a PureFlix app. But, because of having built up my Christmas Library I will not have to miss out on the seasonal offerings. And, well, if I hear of a good new one -- I'll consider buying it and adding it too.

A waste of 90 minutes of your life 🤷‍♀️

Meh. I finished this, but only because I hate not finishing something I started. Overall, an extremely unrealistic plot with a million holes and inconsistencies and rather poor acting. And not just unrealistic as in "oh, wish that would happen to me" ... But just dumb. It's a blizzard ... The snow piles up on nothing. An autistic boy manages to walk in the dark ... In a "blizzard" ... to a church he wouldn't have been to since he was a toddler. 🙄 And yet the adults couldn't walk to the town? Anyway ... Basic plot summary ... 7 people get stranded in a non existent blizzard and decide to hang out in an an abandoned church instead of calling for help ... An 8th person joins the party when she decides to bring them blankets and food ... Everybody's problems get magically solved overnight in a dark, freezing cold church that providentially has a million candles that never go out ... And an autistic boy finds the church instead of getting lost in the blizzard and everybody lives happily ever after. 🤦🤷‍♀️
