Definitely Not Why I Go to Movies...

I saw this with my youth group, and I would consider myself a "good christian", but that definitely doesn't mean that I am one of those Christians that loves every Christian movie just because it's Christian. The storyline will be liked by some people, and I actually think it's plausible, but it's pretty dang boring in my opinion. I don't go to movies to hear a sermon, that's what church is for... I go for entertainment, and in this one I was actually looking forward to the ending. I know Christians get bashed, but I hear about it all the time from my grandpa and I don't wanna hear it in a two hour movie with very little action. If you're an older Christian adult who enjoys little action in a movie that's supposed to be a thriller, you may like it, but if you watch movies and you wanna be entertained , I don't recommend it.
