My Take on War Room: Hard to Improve on Steven Brodie Tucker!

I promised my readers (our readers) a review of War Room.  Here it is:

I would heartily agree with the review and encouragement that Steven Brodie Tucker said in his column at our blog.  Here it is!  Hard to add too much to it but there are a few thoughts:

  1.  I am not a technical film person.  But I know great movies and I know terrible ones.  As Justice Potter Stewart once said about obscenity:  I know it when I see it.  I do not know why.  And this movie is  a good movie – nothing stood out in a negative manner.  The actors did not appear to be actors but rather real people.  The only exception is the woman that Tony flirts with – she seems overdone or something.  Yes, very attractive.  But not a naughty girl.  Almost like a church girl in a role she is not comfortable with and trying her best at it.
  2. I would say – people can say:  Not every prayer is “answered”; as a good Wesleyan I can say the Holy Spirit can be resisted.  but I do believe in prevenient grace.  That grace sometimes keeps us out of trouble.  But we underestimate the power of God and the tools He has to get things done.  He won’t force us to be holy.  But He sure can work hard to get us there.  Better pray.
  3. I agree with Tucker that this film is not just about prayer.  It is about men and women and marriages and how to share your faith.

Finally I would say:  Invite someone to go to the movies with you this week or next week.  Even consider going again!  (The film has grossed over $3 million more since the weekend to nearly $14.4 million dollars as of Wednesday.)
