Movie Review: I Can Only Imagine, directed by Andrew and John Erwin

(Five Stars)

“Every feel like everything in your life is building to one big moment? This is it.”

Not just a really good Christian movie, a really good movie. Well written, well acted, well filmed and well produced. Based on the story behind MercyMe’s song by the same name.

“God can forgive you, I can’t.”

All about redemption, in many different forms.

“I saw God transform him from the man I hated to the man I wanted to become.”

Christian books and movies need to be good books and movies. They don’t get a bye because they are faith-based. This movie vindicates that opinion.

“The dad I wanted is about to leave me. How is that fair?”

  1. When there is a message in a book or film, the entertainment value has to be significantly larger – because no one like to be preached to (who isn’t already in the believer category), and being hit over the head with a message results in ducking, not conversion.

    People are often cynical about values – but they still believe in good and evil, and striving, and would prefer to live with others who are safe to rely on. And to rear the children so, and to take care of their elders. There is duty and obligation, but it works better with love. It is extra work for the author, but it is necessary. Unless the author (director, film producer, etc.) is content with those who don’t challenge.

    I like your review. I have written the title down. Some night when husband and I are searching for ‘something good to watch,’ it will come up. Thanks.
