Reviews Of What Is In Theaters Now
ALL SAINTS - Review
Director: Steve Gomer
Stars: John Corbett, Cara Buono, Barry Corbin
Plot: A Tennessee pastor is charged with shutting down a church, but he ends up working with refugees that might help him save their place of worship
Clint Says: Wait for the DVD
This is a wonderful and inspirational true story, based on a pastor leading a church in Smyrna, Tennessee. It comes from the same people that brought us GOD'S NOT DEAD and WAR ROOM. As with those films, you know what you are going to get with this one, and that is just fine.
The acting, editing and cinematography make it feel more like a really well done made-for-TV movie than something for the big screen. That said, it's not the kind of movie that you have to see in theaters. Waiting for it to be released digitally will still give you the same feelings as seeing it now.
If you are a Christian this movie will inspire you. If you aren't a Christian you'll still see it as an interesting and moving story of love and friendship across cultures and in the face of adversity. Either way it is a story that will leave you feeling good.
ALL SAINTS won't be on anyone's Top 10 lists nor will it be winning any major Hollywood awards, but it is a fine film that tells a powerful and heartwarming story that is worth seeing.
