This is NOT churchy or too Christian as a couple of reviews state. This is more about what happens if you say Jesus is God; and the radical Muslims believe it is their right. The movie is VERY suspenseful after the first 10 minutes. All 4 of us that went to see it thought it was excellent - and an eye-opener for the other couple who didn't know what goes on with radical muslims.
Had nothing to do with pro-christian as the 2 star anti-any religion idiot states. Please, some reviewers grow up. The theme is about an abduction of an American for making a statement about Jesus & some radical Shiites ( the main religion in Iran ) get upset. , to put it mildly. Well made (based on true events) movie with many suspenseful moments. in-spite of the inaccurate negative criticism. Some people have no perception of what a movie is about. They should try grown-up school. rh
I disliked the profanity, but it was very well done. Suspenseful from start to finish. i really liked how in the end he prayed and showed compassion to his dying enemy. I love true story movies.
Excellent movie based on more than one story. Shows how we need to stand up for our Faith in a NONviolent matter...never back down for your beliefs. Movie has lots of violence but it is needed to get the point across.
Based on true events. Incredible acting.
Incredible true story! Great acting and you will be on the edge of your seat. One of Dinesh D'Souza's best works!
Best movie ever. Great acting. Great production. Jim had to go through a beating.
Lot of action & suspense.
The lead actors did not create emotional connections with me. Each character was either all good or all bad. Caviezel's (Doug's) Christianity was not compelling. It must have been a miracle, however, that Doug could have been beaten so badly, so many times and yet retain his spotless complexion in several of the subsequent scenes. A tolerable combination of an action, suspense and pro-christian movie but not great in any category.
This shows that a movie maker can cover non-secular topics in an entertaining way without being overly preachy with the audience. Those who are offended at the mere mention of religion notwithstanding.
Excellent movie, keeps you going and cheering for the good guys to win.
Awesome - action packed movie. Very tense.
Too churchy for my taste.
