While this movie really won’t convince non-believers to turn their lives over to Christ, it is another arrow in the quiver of recent Christian movies that builds faith and testimony. Christian movies are slowly getting better and I'm grateful that Christian audiences support them in movie theaters.
Based on the 2013 video game reboot of the same name, there were many high hopes for this reboot. Unfortunately, the studio sacrificed the making of a good movie by giving us a rather boring storyline (you’ve seen it before, trust me) and placing far too much importance on showing us what Lara Croft can survive, rather than giving us a narrative that the audience cared about.
A richly portrayed film called Paul, Apostle of Christ is coming to a select number of theaters in Utah on March 23 for three days only. It is the story of Luke, as a friend and physician, who risks his life when he ventures into the city of Rome to visit Paul to tell his story in what would become the book of Acts.
There are a lot of changes from the page to the screen. In fact, some characters and plot points are removed completely. Those who haven't read the novel will probably just be confused—this film is pretty trippy.
Early Man, created and produced by the same people who brought us the genius of Wallace and Gromit and Chicken Run, provides us with a sweet and silly look at a time that is long gone. The humor in this movie was a little too obvious for me at some points but, based on the laughs from the children in the audience, it definitely entertaining to anyone 13 and under.
Surprisingly violent and full of edgy humor, the most confusing thing about this movie was trying to figure out who the target audience was. At some points too young for adults, and at other points too old for children, I’m not really sure to whom I can recommend this movie.
