They left out the best part, heaven. Yet it is still a good movie
Reviewed in the United States on December 7, 2015
I was hoping to see what I had read in the book, but the movie left out much of what is in the book. There is less than five minutes of heaven in the movie. The rest is about Don Piper's excruciating pain and turmoil after the experience of heaven. They left out the best part of the book, heaven but this seems to happen often when a book is made into a movie. I hate to say it but I must. Having read the book first I was to a point disappointed with the movie. If you haven't read the book I suggest you do so. It is a very uplifting book. The book and the movie are just to far apart. Don't misunderstand me there is much to like in this movie with regard to God's helping us through hard times. I just would have liked to have seen the part which is in the book about what Mr. Piper saw while he was in heaven for 90 minutes. NOTE: There is one thing this book and movie has given me. In all my many, many, years of law enforcement how many times have I been sent to an auto accident where often there would be one and some times several deaths. Never did I pray for the dead. The families that did not yet know of their loss I prayed for, but never the dead. After reading the book "90 Minutes in Heaven and seeing the movie I will at least pray not only for the families, but also for the dead. I have learned from this book and movie you never know what God has in mind. After all God does use his people to do His will. As a Christian I live and I learn. If for no other reason watch this movie and see how God can help you through the hardest of places. He will bring you from what seems like complete defeat to victory if you allow Him to do so.
