Is It Any Good?

Good intentions and declarations of strong faith cannot save this poorly executed and wholly predictable movie that was "inspired by a true story." With few exceptions, the performances are clumsy and self-conscious. The characters are one-dimensional. The situations are hackneyed and surprise-free. The faith-based messages are actually dispiriting because they're repetitive, unoriginal, and lacking subtlety. Both Diahann Carroll and wrestler Roddy Piper (in his last role) make appearances, but their characters are equally one-note. Given all that and some brutal wrestling sequences and street violence, there's nothing to recommend this movie to general audiences. Even those who look forward to movies that affirm their beliefs may be disappointed.
