Best "Christian" Film I have seen (by jaimi-thomsen)
I have seen many Christian produced movies in my life and usually come out refreshed emotionally but the film and acting quality always leaves me frustrated. When they had the pre-screening I was reluctant to go because as an avid movie watcher I was afraid that as a church produced movie the quality would not be what I wanted. Boy was I wrong!! The entire movie I was leaning over to my friends going, look at this film quality!! The one thing I didn't like was the wife of Sam had really cheesy acting. But that was my only complaint of the entire movie. It was as if it was produced and <more>
filmed by Warner Brothers."The Grace Card" refreshed my soul and I could relate. They had topics that were real and happen on a daily basis to many people in our society. And my hopes are that people will understand that although tough things happen in our life, God will be there for us, he never gives us too much to handle, and when at times it feels like our prayers aren't answered that God has a bigger plan and that he is in control. I saw this film at the Trevecca Nazarene University pre-screening and on February 25th I WILL pay the $10.50 to go see it again. And maybe even again after that.If you are struggling with anything or just want to be rejuvenated "The Grace Card" is what you need to see!!
Family Friendly Drama That Inspires (by jamesericmyers)
We had the opportunity of previewing The Grace Card with other local community leaders recently. While many faith based movies that are family friendly and maintain a solid moral direction they often times lack in quality and presentation. The Grace Card, like a few others Facing the Giants, Fireproof, etc. is the exception. Overall the plot, presentation and quality of the film was excellent and I'd highly recommend this picture to people looking for an uplifting family friendly movie to watch.The Grace Card is a drama and we took our teenager and preteen boys to the viewing and they <more>
enjoyed the film just as much as we did. While most Hollywood dramas are something can't watch as a family once again The Grace Card is the exception. Anyone looking for a good drama that is thought provoking that they can watch with the family will enjoy this movie.
This is a great film about grace and forgiveness and what happens if you let anger take control of your life. The acting is awesome. It is hard to believe that only Lou Gossett Jr has been in a movie before. You will not realize that. Mac and Sam are awesome and even the smaller characters are great. It is entertainment with a purpose. The fact that it is a Christian film does not turn you off. There is drama, comedy and action. You will be moved and blessed. Macs character is like people all across the country. It is a real issue that we all face as people. It shows that we can all get along <more>
if we will get our priorities right. I cannot wait to see how America accepts this. Oh and bring your tissues.
... but not this one.I've been watching movies since I was in diapers. That means almost 50 years of films. Thousands and thousands of them. So a few years back when Christians got into movie making in a big way I was extremely excited, ... until I saw them.I don't know if you've noticed, but there seems to be a real tension in Christian films. Will they use the J-word or just the G-word or neither ? For some reason, they are either so busy trying to get to the "main stream" OR "not trying to offend" anyone, that they seem to be dancing around the subject of <more>
Jesus all together. And while they're dancing, the story seems to fall along the wayside while editing and debating whether to mention Jesus.That's why this film, "The Grace Card" was so refreshing. I actually found it by "accident" here at IMDb. I went over to iTunes to RENT it for the weekend because I am the most frugal okay, cheap person in the world. But since the Grace Card was being sold at a "lower-than-the-other-films" price, I bought it. Yes. The cheapskate of cheapskates bought it. I'm so glad I did. Then I can watch this film more than once and whenever I need a boost. This is NOT your average "Christian" film. This one has a story to tell, and they are going to tell it as real as they can. The actors nailed it because I believed them as their characters and I believed their lives. They weren't worried about whether or not they said Jesus. If it's a movie that has a Christian in it, the he SHOULD say Jesus at some point if it's true to life. Right?What was best about this movie is I did see real life in it. I recognized the truth of what it's like when a dedicated Christian who loves Jesus to the core is "stuck" working with someone who can NOT STAND Jesus or at least CHRISTIANS. It had that complete "been there; lived that" feel to it.And while telling this real story of everyday people, whether you relate to the Christian or to the guy who wishes they would just shut up about their religion, you will want to see this movie. Because ultimately, there is not one of us who doesn't need grace and a real friend who will stand by us when life goes way beyond rocky. And for a piece of advice, spend the extra to buy this movie, because it gives you some extra Hope along with that helping of Grace.An added tip to those about to see the Grace Card:*For the women, bring tissues. *For the men, remember the phrase, "I've just got something in my eyes."~ Laura-Lee
"The Grace Card" is a realistic but miraculous portrayal about loving people who don't deserve it, overcoming old wounds, and forgiveness. (by Error_PC_LOAD_LETTER)
Some will reject this movie from the offset because it is a Christian-themed movie, which is unfortunate. It portrays life as it really is, and the struggles we have with wrongs done to us in the past, and the profound moments of letting go, of grace and reconciliation and forgiveness.Although we see God working through the hearts, actions, and circumstances of people, it is not one of those films that portrays this in a triumphal, miraculous, or unrealistic way.It's the story of a Memphis cop, Bill "Mac" McDonald, who, 17 years prior, lost his 5-year-old son who was an innocent <more>
bystander when police were conducting a drug bust on their street. "Mac" turns inward and becomes very bitter, a racist and a perfectionist, straining relations with his wife and other son, and has an attitude problem which keeps him from getting promoted as a cop.Seventeen years later, still deeply embittered and racist, Mac looses out on a promotion that goes to an African-American cop Sam Wright.Sam has struggles of his own. He is a preacher in a small, somewhat declining Church of the Nazarene congregation that seems to be growing stagnant. Sam had hoped that God would bless his ministry and be able to commit full time to it, but in order to support his family, must remain on the Police force. He's a pretty good preacher, but God seems to be using him in even more effective ways on the Police force.Sam Wright and Bill "Mac" McDonald the racist, embittered cop are temporarily placed together as partners on the police force.Despite being emotionally with it, even Sam is deeply hurt by Mac's nonacceptance, unfriendliness, hurtful remarks and scowling hatred merely because Sam is a black man. As a result it hurts his ministry which wants him to preach forgiveness and reconciliation.Without giving away too much, it is Sam's grandfather played by Louis Gossett Jr. who helps Sam deal with his feelings, and produces a short letter from his grandfather the 1880s that becomes the miraculous premise for helping Sam overcome his hurt.A NEW tragedy in Mac McDonald's family brings Sam and Mac closer together in Mac's hour of desperate, prayer-fraught need.Yes, there is a surprise twist or two in the plot.It should be noted that this movie is the work of a first-time director David G. Evans and scores of first-time actors, sponsored mainly by one church Calvary Church of the Nazarene, Memphis . Even so, the results are remarkably good. The actors, the police force -- all seem like down to earth, ordinary people pulled together by miraculous circumstances, and a few surprise twists. We see God working profoundly through hearts and circumstances rather than divine intervention and miracles. Only a couple of actors are less than professional and their lines or scenes are short, unobtrusive. Louis Gossett fits in well with his stellar performance.The film also has great shots of Memphis, portraying the city as it really is -- many of the familiar but less known streets and intersections.Don't expect a high-tech thriller. But this is a realistic, down-to-earth slice of life film with a powerful Christian theme of Grace and reconciliation.
