So many religious movies feel sub-par in production values, hence the 5 stars. This is well done in acting, directing and cinematography, but not supreme. At two hours some valuable details were omitted, for example, in the historical account, the children were subjected to psychological torture of great cruelty by the authorities. The "Miracle of the Sun" gave a good impression of how people felt, but didn't match up to contemporary descriptions; in these days of CGI this was a bit weak. The faith of the children, their humility, commitment to prayer and penance rang true. Also, the confusion, conflict and social difficulties they faced matched the history I have read.
