CFDb Review!

Cindy says… This courtroom drama is not the most compelling I have ever watched, but I did enjoy it. Check out Cindy’s Movie Review.

Film Synopsis:

He lost his family. Now he must rediscover his faith.

Matthew Modine delivers one of his finest performances in this gripping courtroom thriller based on the best-selling novel by Robert Whitlow. Modine stars as “Mac” McClain, an emotionally crippled attorney who’s lost his faith in God and himself. That’s when Mac reluctantly decides to take on one last case: a young man (Randy Wayne, To Save A Life), facing the death penalty for first-degree murder.

But nothing can prepare Mac for the startling twists and turns of the ensuing trial, as the determined lawyer fights for justice and seeks a path to his own redemption.

    This is one of the best faith-based films I’ve seen. The quality and production value are great. This was filmed with Red One. The acting is good due to having well known experienced actors and one will get into the story. It’s not like most faith-based films where you notice all the flaws. This is worth watching. It beats all the mainstream faith-based movies I’ve seen.

    15 minutes in it dawned on me that it was a christian produced movie. Stunted dialogue. Bland characters. Poor directing. Sad the Christian world has such a hard time making good movies. Couldn’t bear to finish it. Sorry
