Is It Any Good?

This well-intentioned Christian movie about healing from trauma has a few touching moments, but a weak script and sometimes amateurish acting keep it from genuinely moving the secular viewer. Instead of an in-depth character study about faith and healing, We Are Stronger simply moves from one clichéd exchange of dialogue to another. Viewers can understand and care about the plight of those recovering from trauma, but we never really feel like we're getting to a profound understanding of Vic personally or individually.

Christians who are looking for help for themselves or a loved one will find a lot of resources for Christ-centered healing, and will be moved by Vic and Michelle's story. Secular viewers may be put off by the default assumption that everyone is Christian, but those that stick with it may appreciate secular messages about healing through sharing pain and understanding that we're not alone. Brief blood, mature themes, and a story of past sexual abuse make it best for teens and up.
