Excellent movie...especially if you believe (by monika-woods)
Christians will get it. They will understand that the subplots, twists and turns of life are intricately woven into a careful masterpiece that we call life. When we went into the theater, I was not anticipating much. Based on other movies that do not connect multi-plots well, I decided this would be a "feel good" story that would relay a good message to the youth group I was with. Thankfully, and much to my surprise, I was wrong. The movie was seamlessly interactive. The characters were developed well enough to convey an "everyman" message, about people from all walks of <more>
life and how we can all affect one another, in a positive or negative way.The movie is not about winning an Oscar, it is about winning people over, by providing hope with inspiration for all to change for the betterment of all humanity.
From an innocuous beginning, to a climax that left me speechless, this movie did not disappoint. The many characters were all real, believable people. Kudos to Bozworth, Sorvino, and Astin for their portrayals. In Addition to them, seeing Lee Majors in this was a pleasant surprise. Cybill Shepard did a good job as his reluctant and grieving wife. As for the brothers in the poor black family, you will not be able to forget Pretty Boy and Kriminal. If you know someone who has returned from combat in the last 20 years, this has a man that even a WW2 generation can relate. Great camera work on <more>
the bridge scenes, hospital locale, and nice overhead shots of the Windy City. Worth the time and money to see!
I question the value of IMDb Ratings when the average rating is polarized, with a dominant percentage 43 at 10, and a significant percentage 29 at 1, with very few in between.The actual user reviews are highly favorable, with only 3 highly unfavorable. So, there are just a lot of trash voters too lazy or inarticulate to really review the movie to give their reasons, just the thumbs up or thumbs down minimal input.My wife and I decided to go see what it was all about, especially with a couple of former "A" list actors involved.The divided vote was reflected by the content's <more>
portrayal of real life; how the stories of 12 people converge one night. The perspective is of how life intertwines, good and evil, comedy and tragedy. For us it evoked a lot of emotions, as we had several parallel stores in our lives. Broken relationships, disease, death, depression, violence, the gamut of human condition that have us questioning God.Some of the characters had a common guiding principle in their lives, others only their own benefit. Still, life went on and paths crossed changing some character's opinions based on actual experiences.For us the aggressive plot moved along at a quick pace, the character development was a but sketchy because of the 12 stories, but in the end it all fit together. Lots of tears, more of joy than sadness.From our perspective it was very well done for a low budget Christian movie, obviously appealing to those who believe, and perhaps graphic and life like enough to set an example for the critics when they come to a life bridge to cross.
I have to admit it started a little slow at first, but loved it! It has some great messages and themes throughout and great acting! Bring the Kleenex! I saw this at an early screening sponsored by Pureflix and I thought it was fantastic. I saw the unfinished cut and will go see it again. I can't wait to see the finished product. People from all walks of life should appreciate the truth and honesty portrayed in the film.I don't like when people immediately dismiss a film because of its Christian views and say things like its cheesy. No, it's truth and a lot of people don't like <more>
to have the facts right in front of them. I hope God uses this film to touch a lot of people's hearts and get them to begin asking themselves the question, "Do you believe?"
Very entertaining...good movie! (by bwillcox-19943)
This movie was very good! It gave a clear presentation of the gospel but not in a holier-than-thou cheesy way...just real-to-life characters, facing different situations. The story line was good and compelling throughout. It is admittedly clean and wholesome no sex/bad language ...perhaps those who gave lower reviews were disappointed in that? This movie is proof that Hollywood can make excellent movies without having to go to the gutter. As a believer I give it a 9; if I was a non-believer, I think I would still give it at least a 7. Solid cast, solid acting, solid message. It was fun too <more>
see Cybil Shepherd and Lee Majors on screen again. And Brian Bosworth who would have thought?! ALL the actors were good. Go see it!
Pure Christian Faith Film That's Emotional and Thought Provoking (by IronBallsM)
This film is exceptionally emotional at times. It delivers strong characters with compelling dramatic arcs. The movie challenges Christians to live better lives and take stock of how they live and what they truly believe.It certainly isn't a subtle movie in any way. It's a sledgehammer of a Christian film and, sometimes, a sledgehammer is the right tool for the job. The movie is pure Christian faith and what it means to the characters depicted. That may not be the level of faith all Christians are able to achieve but it should be the goal. Films like this are a reminder as well as a <more>
message to live life at the highest level possible. Yes, there is a certain level of cheese on display in a few plot lines but it's wonderful and satisfying cheese. I do love the fact that, unlike other Christian films that I've seen, they brought out top tier acting talent. These performances were amazing top to bottom. Obviously everyone knows Mira Sorvino, Cybill Shepherd and Sean Astin can bring it but journeymen actors like Ted McGinley and Lee Majors give what may be the best performances of their career. I'm stunned to say that even The Boz was very very good. Who knew Brian Bosworth had that type of performance in him? Overall, for those of Faith this movie is a must see. For those who are lacking Faith, it just may be an eye opener.
If you are a Christian, you should see this movie (by seanraybuck)
It is unfortunate that this movie is currently getting such a low rating on IMDb because it is a quite a good movie and it isn't a fair representative of the quality. There are many Christian movies out there, some of them very low quality and low budget, often not very well made that I am fairly critical of. This is not one of those movies.I am a youth director and took 8 youth both junior high and high school and 3 adults to go watch the movie and every one LOVED it. There wasn't a dry eye in the place - it is touching and inspiring.Look here is the deal: there are some cheesy <more>
moments in the movie. But it is a powerful story, over all VERY well told, and has a needed message: faith without works is dead.I am giving this movie an 8/10. I thought about bumping it up because of the low rating it had been given, but as a movie critic I think this is the fair and actual rating it deserves. It is a GREAT movie and very few movies will I give a 9 or 10 .If you do not like Christianity then you will probably not like this movie.If you are a Christian, I highly recommend it!!
After suffering through "Saving Christmas" and reading that this movie had received bad reviews on many sites, I really was not expecting much. I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised. For me, It was gripping and thought provoking. The acting was a lot better than the reviews, and the story line was well put together for a 120 minute movie. This is definitely worth watching and once again proves that you should never take some "critics" review of a movie too seriously. What I loved about it is how it ties together 12 different peoples journey to Christ and tackles <more>
that age old question, "why does God let bad things happen to good people?". It shows how we only see a little part of his plan and his understanding is far greater than ours.
It's not easy pulling off an anthology movie, Christian-themed or not. The task of writing multiple stories, giving time for each character to grow, then bringing them all together for a believable climax seems to fail more often than not. Do You Believe? does an excellent job of creating multiple characters/story lines I cared about!The acting is solid throughout, with my biggest compliment and surprise going to Brian Bosworth. His character's innate warmth resonates in every scene he's in. It's not a big, flashy part but it suits his talents well and he nails it. Ted <more>
McGinley also scores high marks as a pastor who just wants to do the right thing.As I mentioned earlier, pulling off an anthology film is not an easy task and yes, there will be some who'll say the ending is clichéd, having all these characters intersect. But that's the point! God wants a personal relationship with all of us and He can use our lives however He sees fit. If you're a Christian, you'll get it. If not, give the movie a chance and see where it leads your heart.
