Heaven is for Real is a wonderful feel good movie. Great cast. I would recommend this movie to others
What a pleasure to see that a producer and big picture studio would take the time to make a movie about something that doesn't involve violence and war. Christmas is all about Christ and we believe in Christmas so why would we doubt that a child would make up such stories. Great congrats to the producer for doing this movie ..... more people should see this to remind them that positive attitudes can make a better life for all.
blue eyes, blond hair, white - give me a break!
Such a touching movie for those who have faith and trust we loved it and saw it twice can't wait for it to be released on DVD July 22/14
People are funny. They talk about religious, talk about preaching,etc. The movie is about Heaven for REAL!!!! Religion, preaching , does it really matter if HEAVEN is for REAL!! This movie is about HEAVEN being REAL, and of course all the people that believe it are going to 100% it. If you go to a strip place, a gambling place, a bar with beer made on the premises, and its real and its good, and its amazing etc, and its what you felt, tasted, touched, watched, etc. Arn't you going to promote it. WELL thats what normally people do. So stop being a hypocrite and opinionated about something you know nothing about, and stop watching stuff you want to criticize because you don't agree...
Finally a movie that addresses what it means to die. A look at a humans conscience at time of death. All that humans are exposed to, including those things that we are indoctrined with by those people and experiences around us are what defines our heaven or hell when we die. Nothing less and nothing more. Our heaven is nothing more than what we want it to be - our conscience.
Loved the movie, but would have liked to see more of Heaven!
Just as good as the book, how do you explain the unexplainable
Of course, ALL the religious people LOVE this movie. It's expected they would give 5 stars. This is a load of bunk.
I felt like I was watching a made-for TV movie, but at the $13.25 cinema price. Story line and acting rather hoakie, but an OK movie overall. Extremely PG with an church-like underside.
My husband and I loved this movie and would go see it again.
Correction — I omitted the e from spat(e).
There must be a lot of evangelical money going into creating this recent spat of ridiculous movies.
Glad I read the book first so I didn't waste the money on the movie.
Loved it- Now that's a movie! This has it all. Really gets you thinking too, you find yourself fully engaged in the movie- EVEN after it's over! Incredible story.
We loved the movie-this is the first time that I have rated a movie-it must have been good
Read the book and when I saw the movie was quite disappointed. They totally left out key parts like when the boy, Colton, met Lucifer and how Colton saw his father fight against Lucifer in Armageddon. Also it seemed like the plot more revolved around the father in his belief for his son's story. Anyways it was alright but a disappointment if you read the book.
A great movie to watch with family friends and loved ones. The power of prayer is amazing. When two or more are gathered in his name, for the good of man. It shall be so.
The movie was a bit slow. I had certain expectations for this movie and I was kind of disappointed that it was missing what I was yearning for. Overall it's good for beginners.
Excellent movie.... would recommend it to anyone. The movie sticks very closely to the book.
Excellent Movie with good messages also, showing people how life issues like trust, fear, pride and unforgiveness can be overcome thru our Savior and set us free!
Well done! What else is there to say, great story, obviously true, how can you not believe!
Bravo! Reinforcement for believers and something for non believers to ponder. Make sure that you are not on the wrong side of the fence!
Wonderful movie of faith, hope and love. We took our grandchildren to see it and we all loved it! Great acting too! Would see it again for sure.
Such a great movie!
this was very good
testimony that indeed Heaven is real!
I really enjoyed this movie. It was very touching and uplifting and gives everyone hope of a glorious afterlife. We need more Christian themed movies in the theatres.
This is a feel good movie and provided relief for our 9yr old who was anxious thinking about death of older family members.
I thought this was a decently made, well acted movie, about a very controversial subject.... the afterlife, and heaven. It definitely gives you food for thought. I would recommend this to anyone grieving the loss of a loved one. It will give you hope, which it did to me.
The title is "Heaven is for Real". What did non believers think this movie was about? If you don't like religon, don't see it, and certainly don't comment on it if you aren't going to see it because of that. Go see a violent sexist movie instead, and comment on those.
I am not religious, but I found the movie, the casting, the story to be really excellent. What a refreshing change to see in the theaters. I like all genre of movies, and this topic is rare, and always seems to attract such controvery. I don't know why people have to object to such stories. What are they really worried about? hmmmm
This movie is unfortunately very slow but more over it has strong religious connotations. You should be prepared to be preached to for almost the whole length of this movie about religious faith. If you are a non believer this movie would certainly not be for you. It's appeal is directed to a select audience.
Enjoyed this so much. Heaven Is For Real stayed tru to the book. Excellent family and faith inspired movie for all.
Great acting and amazing story!! One of the better
Went to this movie as we knew one of the extras in the movie and it was filmed in and around Selkirk. Excellent made for television movie. Found it a little "choppy" as a movie; great story and family movie. Nice to not hear any swearing and not see any violence. Movies can be made without such!
Heaven is for real. Jesus's love is real! So worth watching!
I loved the book & the movie. It is so wonderful to see a movie in the theaters that is Hope filing. Especially when sometimes life is hard. I would see it again! What a great Reminders that Heaven is for real and so is Jesus's love for us!
Outstanding story then movie and cast...if you are a wavering believer or non-believer this movie will help you immensely.
perfect movie great storie
It's funny, people teach their children about Santa claus, the Easter bunny and the tooth fairy, but say what if there's a heaven and they start quoting Voltaire regarding absurdities and such. It was a great movie about a family (remember one of those?) that goes through some rough times and their young boy almost dies. His portrayal was simply great.
We are going to see this movie tomorrow and my two boys are very excited to see the movie because they have very strong faith in Jesus. Jesus is real and Heaven is for real. Praying for non believers to believe in Jesus.
Awesome true story!
This is a movie of hope and beliefs. I enjoyed it with a friend who experienced near death a few years ago. She was very moved by certain similarities between what the boy describes in the movie and what she experienced.
"If we believe absurdities, we shall commit atrocities" -- Voltaire
This movie shows how gullible and ignorant people are, there are many biological conditions that create solid seeming real hallucinations, and people lie about things to get their agenda across. Just metaphysical propaganda.
