CFDb Review:

The Encounter – This was one of the most refreshing Christian movies seen in a long time. This movie touched on real questions that everyone faces and the hard choices God makes, so that we might ultimately be saved. A powerful, must-see movie!  Check out the CFDb interview with director David A.R. White.

The Encounter

Film Description:

The Encounter – Stranded in the middle of nowhere, five strangers find themselves marooned in a small deserted roadside diner. An arrogant businessman, (Steve “Sting” Borden), a lonely single woman, (Jaci Velasquez), a couple on the verge of divorce, and a youthful runaway, all come face to face with the diner owner who serves them more than temporal nourishment. This very nice host called Nazarene, (Bruce Marchiano) who knows all of their secrets and possesses the answers to all of their problems, if only they would trust him. It is this miraculous Encounter that will leave them all changed.

The Encounter is an inspirational and intriguing faith-filled family drama about five people who are brought faced to face with Jesus and encouraged to examine the true condition of their lives.

Check out the Sequel – “The Encounter 2: Paradise Lost

    Thank You to the film company that made this movie! I never get tired of watching it when it comes on JCTV! This is one of my favorite Christian movies. A lot can be said about what this movie conveys, But in my heart, I know I’ve met Jesus in a good many ways in my life.This movie may have a Twilight Zone type script to it, But that in no way takes away from the overall message. All I can say is: Thank You Jesus For Helping Make This Movie! & also to the actors as well.

    This is one of the best christian movies i have ever seen. Such a powerful message portrayed in an unusual, unique manner. It is in my opinion a very effective evangelical tool. It shows all just how PERSONAL Jesus Christ can be to anyone who would receive Him. May God bless the cast and crew immensely…may your reward on earth and in heaven be great!!!

    Hi this movie really amazed me I was really touched by the message in this movie. I saw this movie on TBN TV. like nothing else to do I was just changing Channels n my remount then come across with this movie it was at beginning with the open up credit so I didn’t know it was the Encounter. I really will recommend this movie to everyone just so their can see how Jesus really want us to be safe and to be out of this sinful life we living. For the Kingdom Of God is coming soon.

  22. CFDb says
    14 September 11, 4:47pm

    Hi Steven,

    If you hit the buy button, there should be about 4 options that you can
    choose to buy the movie from different places.

    As far as recommendations it really depends on what kind of movie you are
    looking for. There are a lot of excellent
    Christian movies out there.

    The Secrets of Jonathan Sperry is a really great one (kids like that one
    too)

    The ones made by Sherwood Pictures
    Flywheel
    Facing the Giants
    Fireproof
    (soon – Courageous)

    Flag of my Fathers (great for military)

    One of my favorites – To Save A Life – fabulous for teens and adults -

    You can e-mail us directly at Roger@christianfilmdatabase.com and give us an
    idea of what you
    are really looking for.

    Thanks,
    Roger

    Just saw this movie for the second time on TBN – it is always on late at night. This is a beautiful family movie – goes straight to the heart! I wish TBN would play it earlier. Do you know if this is also on Daystar?

  26. Annelie says
    19 September 11, 2:54pm

    It doesn’t look like this is showing on Daystar according to their schedule. Sorry we don’t have any more details on that. There is a link on the database if you wish to purchase the movie or rent it.

    Excellant movie. This would make a good play. The concept maybe would make a good series.

  28. 22 September 11, 4:50pm

    This is an awesome movie! I love the music as it appeals to all ages. Definitely one I will keep in my library for therapeutic purposes. I have recommended it to many of my Christian clients and staff.

  30. alx says
    23 September 11, 5:06pm

    Wow… this was awful….and as a Christian, embarrassing. I’m sure all the reviewers are too focused on the fact that it’s a “christian film’ to miss that fact that it’s a boring, predictable one act stage play and NOT a movie. And for the term “it was good “for a christian film”…. ugh… really??? does that make it immune from entertainment, intelligence or production value??? Come on people wake up! If you want to make a good “christian film”, don’t make this… make something more real, more thought out and frankly more entertaining. And don’t give answers to all the questions, let people discover them on their own, nothing you do or say is going to make someone believe, because it’s not up to you, it’s between God and that person…period. So stop trying to make ‘witness tools’ and just make good quality, respectable films that are just plain good… Not filmed church plays…. I would be embarrassed to show this to a non Christian. For crying out loud the name on the window is written in electrical tape!? the ‘mysterious diner owner’ is wearing a name tag but then reveals that he IS Jesus 2 seconds in…. Mystery goes out the window right then and there… build tension, set up questions and DON’t answer them all, at least not right away, and the characters were thin and predictable…
    Get a higher standard people, God made the universe, don’t give “christian filmakers” a lower bar than the rest of the world…

  31. Tammy says
    24 September 11, 9:33pm

    Just watched this movie it was great. Would like to know who the actor in the last seen with Jesus was? He looked very familiar.

  32. snapfusion says
    25 September 11, 9:21am

    Great, a film critic has joined the party, reminding us all that production value is greater than the message of god, Thanks for the “wake up” call alx!

    How ironic…….

  33. Rumpelstiltskin says
    25 September 11, 11:14am

    Hello Nick, I mean, alx. Sounds like you missed the real content of the movie while you were focused on details like how the name of the diner was implemented. I’ll bet 99.99% of those watching the movie never noticed that…or would care.
    Why get so caught up in your personal criticisms of the production details you ignore the real value? A one-act play? The setting was in one location, for one night. Do you think they should have been there for longer than overnight? Would that have made any sense?
    Let’s just enjoy the movie as it is, a gem. I watched it twice in a row on Netflix.

  34. Alx says
    26 September 11, 3:17am

    I’m simply saying that this movie does not deserve such high praise. I get the message, in fact I got the message in the first 5 minutes because they spilled the beans on the whole plot in that time. I’m just saying that Christians seem to accept a lower standard when we should be creating a higher standard. If everyone keeps saying low budget, thinly vailed stories are ‘awesome’ then there is no room to grow. I work in the film industry with big name directors and see the care and attention put into crafting good stories. Why should a Christian film maker be praised for doing an less than average job? We should be held to a higher standard than the world… As a movie, this was embarrassing to watch. If it was a church play it would’ve been ok…

  35. Rachel Klugh says

    Alx- “nothing you do or say”? Thank you God, Jesus didn’t have hat that same attitude or way of thinking we he came here to die, but before he died he served and healed others, he cared about their smallest needs.God can use anyone or anything, he doesn’t need an academic award winning film to reach the lost and broken. Can you honestly say that it was not part of Gods plan to make this movie, which I am sure it was. If it saved just one person from the pit of hell then thank you Jesus for speaking to the heart of the people who made this film. As a Christian who is struggling with my own life this film spoke to me and answered a lot of questions I had.I pray that the lord speaks to your heart and shows you how is hands are even in the smallest things even films that people don’t consider quality film. For the record you never know how God will touch a persons heart, he can do it in ways that you can’t even imagine.

  37. Frank says
    26 September 11, 11:16pm

    Really enjoyed this film, so did my family. I am curious what it cost to produce this film. Can anyone assist with real costs? Thanks. You know Alx, not every film is made to be an Academy Award winner, not every film has to be to your standards to deliver a message…sometimes keeping it simple and listening to the words has the greatest impact…I feel sorry for you…you missed the whole point…

    27 September 11, 4:45pm

    I randomly picked this movie on netflix out of a dead sleep. Woke up and thoroughly enjoyed the message. So much so that I had to share it with my coworkers. Thank you for producing the movie, its on my must have list.

  39. AAlva says
    29 September 11, 2:36pm

    I am recently divorced father of three. Whenever I get my kids I generally pick family-oriented, thought-provoking, or “classic” movies to watch in the evenings. I selected this movie while scanning through Netflix, and popped it onto the TV screen before my kids had a chance to protest. The movie started with a “Twilight Zone” feel to it and that immediately got their attention fast. I wasn’t disappointed – it held the attention of the 15, 12, and 4 year old throughout the movie. What grabbed me was the couple in the midst of marital strife. Their dialogue was word-for-word copies of the “conversations” my ex and I had in the last year of our marriage. That was me when Hank asked for Jesus to heal their marriage. And that was my faithless and unfaithful wife in the role of Catherine. It was quite an eye opener for me and the kids. Personally, it did not feel as painful watching it now as it would have been a year ago. But it did bring to mind my request to the Lord to “restore” my marriage many months ago. That has not happened but I continue to believe in His plan whatever the outcome may be. Overall, I would say the movie fulfilled its goal as “entertainment with a message”. True, it doesn’t have the huge production value that other movies have these days but it is the message that is most important to me. I recommend it to everyone.

    30 September 11, 2:28pm

    i am so blessed by this movie as it not only talks about the good things that Christ does, it also really describes that regardless of how tough life might get, all things work together for good those who love God and are called for his purpose. it also shows how living a dream doesnt necessarily mean that a person has it all. God is so gracious

  41. Julie says
    08 October 11, 8:11pm

    I just finished watching this movie and I am speechless.This is such a great movie!!! I was so moved by it. There aren’t any words to describe it. I highly recommend EVERYONE to see it. :)

  42. Julie says
    08 October 11, 8:18pm

    I so disagree with Alx. Watch it again only with your heart this time. Jesus tells us to be set apart. To be different than the world.What made it an excellent movie was it’s message. It was complete truth. As Christians, this is exactly what we should be looking for, but unfortunately we have been desensitized by the worlds way. I have seen low budget movies that were painful to watch, but this was not at all. I clung to every word and cried as I watched and listened. It was a wonderful representation of the character of Jesus. Thank you for making this film. Continue to glorify the Lord with the gifts He has given you for His glory alone. :)

  43. Chris Bekoe says
    13 October 11, 4:31am

    The first time i watched this christian movies, i was filled and touched by the Holy Spirit. I will share this movie with my friend and my church. Jesus is always near to us but we don’t see Him. Lord Jesus, grant me the spirit to hear your voice always. Amen!

    I loved this film. I showed it to a group of teenagers who had lots of questions about Chrisianity and the love of God. I think it pretty much answered them all. I especially love how Jesus is protrayed. His love and compassion seem so genuine.

    One of great movies that media won’t talk about, I was touched by the message and the movie depicted what is happening in our daily lives, the choices that we face, I loved how the father’s love has been portrayed and i will never be the same again, Lets keep the fire for winning souls i’m sure this movie will win many hearts

    Great movie. Very well presented and definitely makes you think about your relationship with Jesus. The idea though of people going to heaven when they die is not in the bible though and is I think the only failing of the movie. All the bible writers agree that they are looking forward to being resurrected when Jesus comes. (a.k.a. Job)

  62. Annelie says
    27 December 11, 7:10am

    If you are interested in watching a lot of Christian films you would need to invest in a region 1 player because 99% of Christian films are
    only made in region 1 such as The Encounter. You can go to the film page http://www.christianfilmdatabase.com/review/the-encounter/ and click on Official Websites
    and contact the company directly to see if they ever intend on making a Region 4 version.

    Great Movie. A young couple was so impressed they brought it over so they could watch it again with us. We have since showed it to several other couples and know we will be sharing it a lot more in the future. What a comment when Jesus says He hardly recognizes the world He made. He wants so much more for us. Love the message! Thank you!

  64. Julian says
    06 January 12, 10:23pm

    I watched this movie tonight and for a long time I was like the guy who was stuck up and didn’t care to give his life to Jesus. But my mom put the movie on and I was still like so who cares but at the end I was like wow. I need to change cause like I’m pretty sure it was Nick but he had chances and he didnt know that he was goin to die that night and that could be me and I’ve done some stuff and I’m in my middle teens and I don’t know when I’m going to die. So I have accepted Jesus and when I got to church I’m talkin to my pastor about baptism. I am a Christan :)

  65. GoldenVine says
    09 January 12, 8:09pm

    This is a wonderful movie! I love the message and how the love and compassion of Jesus is so clearly depicted. I’ve seen quite a few Christian movies and none have moved me the way this one did.

    I plan to buy it and share it with everyone.

  66. Tammy says
    09 January 12, 8:18pm

    I love this movie, my husband and I watched it, then watched it again with our kids and they loved it also; so much that they now continue to watch it on their own. We have really spread the word about this movie. It is just like that person above said christian or non christian it is a must watch.

  67. Linda Jones says
    26 January 12, 3:05am

    26 January 12, 4:29pm

    I loved the movie. It moved me tears all through. God loves us dearly and wants us to make the right choice in following Him. Why would anyone want to spend an eternity in hell? I wish more thought provoking films like ‘The Encounter’ could be produced. The world sorely needs them.

    Just watched this movie at my church’s Movie Night and i LOVED IT! Jesus is awesome but he’s gentle too, this i knew but i saw how he really works an it helped me better understand him too :) I’ll admit, the movie made me tear up on some parts, especially at the end when he told everyone he loved them <3 i know he loves us all, but hearing him say it just makes me believe it more that i am loved by the very one who created me.

    Why no MPAA rating. I need to know if it is appropriate for children.

  73. CFDb says
    19 March 12, 7:34am

    Hi Angel,

    Some films just don’t go for the MPPA rating, not sure why. Dove says “Recommended for
    ages 12 and over”.

    My sister’s kids have seen it and they are 8, 10 and 12 and they all loved it, they have watched it 3 times now. :)

    I would say it’s appropriate for older kids, as always, it depends on the child.

    The film has a great message for the whole family. I would watch with your kids then talk about it afterwords.

    Let us know what they think, so others will know.

    Thought provoking film. It is available on Netflix so in Australia maybe that is your solution. The actor that plays Jesus is excellent as is the actor that plays Nick.

    We do have a link under “Rent Film” to Netflix and Christian Cinema for renting the film.

    This movie was SOOOOOO amazing! I cried so hard, and it helped me realize how much Jesus loves me. All of the actors did fantastic! This is literally the BEST movie ever, and I hope to get it on DVD soon!!!!!! :D

    I bought this DVD months ago. Just watched it for the 2nd time earlier today. A fantastic movie, absolutely love it! Answers a lot of questions people have in a unique and thought-provoking way. Bruce Marciano is an excellent choice for the role of Jesus! Can’t wait to see thew sequel!

    I just rented The Encounter from Netflix and I had to pause the movie to come online to rant about what an ANNOYING job you did of programming the disk!

    The previews cannot be sped up, skipped or menu’d past. Thanks SO much. I not only have seen ALL of those movies … I OWN THEM.

    When the feature (finally) started, I tried to use the subtitles to help my aging ears catch the dialogue only to find you used the SMALLEST FONT IN THE HISTORY OF SUBTITLES.

    Let me think. Old ears? Check. Old eyes? Double check. So thanks for nothing.

    I rent your films to preview them. I usually end up buying them. Not always, but most of the time. NOT THIS ONE.

    Sorry for the disappointment and on a film that got such fantastic reviews. I’m not sure who is responsible for not being able to fast forward through previews. That can be quite annoying at times. Maybe that was Netflix. Not sure though. We don’t make any of the films, we just list them.

    I stumbled upon this movie on ebay, and read the outline.
    I never thought it was going to be that good!
    My wife and I watched it twice that same evening!!!!
    The next night I watched it with my folks.
    This weekend I’m watching it with my sister and brother in law.
    We bought three more to share with friends who still need to come into the Kingdom.
    And will probably buy more in the future…
    It is THAT good!
    It gives you a bit of a grip of what Jesus is like…
    It sure left us loving Jesus that much more!

    In responding to alx’s comments, “You sound like screwtape in “The screwtape Letters”. Notice that I didn’t capitalize “screwtape”/
    Alx, you have a choice, I pray that you put aside your pride and cynicism in order to see that you are a hurting person and really need Jesus to search your heart to remove the bitterness and hurt you are/ have suffered. Remember, you have a choice..
    Hopefully by the time that you read this post your testimony will be different..If not, it’s your choice1
    You were mired in the small details.Don’t you know that God uses the foolish things of the world to confound the wise, therefore the wise things will confound the fool!

    Great Movie. I saw myself in one of the characters. I also love the way the Jesus Character answered all the questions that were thrown at him.With love and with wisdom. Yet its a wonder how we could miss the TRUTH when it is STANDING right in front of us.

    I never knew i could be moved in Spirit by a movie. This is a ministry on its own and questions that would have taken me time to answer as an evangelist was conveyed just with short words. as a matter of fact, i now have keen interest in more of such movies. I tried to convince myself that it is not real but this movie is too real to be unreal. I am seriously hungry for more of these movies at any cost as long as it reveals such heart lifting truth..may God strenghten the industry.

    This movie is not based on speculations but spirit led! It help brighten the minds of those who never understood that Jesus loves us and has greater things in store for us. There’s no theological flaws at all. I love it and i wish the whole world would watch it. It is also amazing that the movie was produced under a low budget! Wooow!

    i buy the movie in my church at warri delta state Nigeria, the movie is really thought provoking, after watching the movie 15/11/2013 at 12am at mid night, i discovered i need Jesus more than any thing in my life, i went on my kneels and ask him to come into my life and family and forgive me my sins, 16/11/2013 at 6:30am i re-watch it, tears roll down as Jesus told hauk to ask him to save his marriage, as hank did i started cry again and i prayed for my family and my young brother to receive Jesus. I called my young brother whom every one has given up on because of his attitude that has case the family series of shame, i called he and i told him in tears that i love him that he should give his life to Jesus and he said he will. thanks for this movie the encounter that has bless my life and has brought my closer to Jesus. thanks guys GREAT MOVIE. stephen iniovo from nigeria

    I saw this on Netflix. This is surprised me. It is a movie that only Christians would like and understand. It does have extreme over the top elements, and very cheesy moments. But it is good and will resonate with believers. How can anyone hate this Bruce actor, he plays such innocent and caring Jesus roles? The movie didn’t go into the same predictable ending like most Christian movies, and I liked that. When it gets going, it hold your interest.
