  • 5 stars Loved this Movie. There should be additional Movies, Written, Directed & Produced like this. I think all of the Actors deserve an Oscar for their Outstanding Performance! Awesome Movie!
  • 5 stars I read this book six. Years ago when our Son died! This was my saving grace and got me through the darkest time! My husband hadn't read it but went to see the movie and loved it! Very thought provoking
  • 5 stars I came just watched this movie without any previous knowledge on what it was going to be about. Just like Sam Worthington, and I will be showing it to my 11yr old daughter, and 8yr old son next. This movie was so uplifting and powerful. Beautifully illustrates one mans journey from sorrow to forgiveness, set amongst a landscape, almost as beautiful as the journey itself. I am Christian and can't understand how any Christian couldn't appreciate the message. A look at what a true relationship with God looks like. Well done!
  • MORE than pleasantly surprised that the characters come through in the movie just as I envisioned them in the book! Movie has a few gaffs such as the wife being so emotionally strong that she appears almost indifferent and Mac starts getting spiffed up for church after he gets to know God (that's religion, not the relationship God wants with us all and this allegory otherwise so beautifully portrays), but the (true to the New Testament) reset on judgment per chapter 11 is fantastic (if a bit too short) - a message I hope many religious people will take to heart! Only wish the movie could have been long enough to tell the whole story, but the right edits were made for time restraints. See the movie, but read the book! .. then get to know the real Jesus - who ends religion.
  • 5 stars I'm a father of 3, and have been dealing poorly with PTSD related to military service. When the father told the oldest girl that 'none of this was her fault' an emotional dam broke in me. I have been so selfish in my pain. This movie moved me like no other.
  • 1 stars a religion movie and is not good
  • 1 stars One star
  • 5 stars I read the book some years ago, saw the movie and just re-read the book. It was very motivating and helped me to understand God as a Holy Trinity. The questions we all tend to ask were there. Forgiveness, trust in a all knowing - all loving God and repentance is implied. The beauty of the message is we need to RE-Turn to God as we are, not with a burden checklist of things to do, in order to receive His Mercy & Grace. To know that He is not behind the bad things that happen, but can help us thru them if we trust and have an open/constant relationship with Him. See the movie helped me better understand the Bible and release the great sadness.
  • 5 stars This movie was very powerful and showed the importance and need to have FAITH IN AND TRUST IN GOD ALMIGHTY!
  • 5 stars Awsome!! It touched my soul!!
