‘The Basement’ ~ CFDb Movie Review
he world is in turmoil after the mysterious disappearances of people all over the world. Nine individuals who find refuge in the basement of a church deal with issues of race, religion, and buried secrets.
Everyone has choices in this world. Choices are seeds that determine our destiny. – Imagine… Nine individuals: A Detective; a news reporter and her cameraman; two teenagers; a church secretary; a repressed businessman; a youth Pastor; and a Pastor’s wife: Going about their lives when suddenly over a third of the earth’s population disappears. Friends and loved-ones…gone. Then, through a series of “random” events, the nine find themselves taking refuge in the basement of a church. And as the world grows more violent and chaotic above, they try to make sense of what has happened. Will they find a way out through faith or remain trapped in fear?
Some great moments in this film. Here were some highlights:
- The way the mom treated the son at the beginning of this movie. It was a wake up call that no one should ever speak that way to anyone, let alone your own child. It was truly heartbreaking and I know very realistic in some homes.
- Some of the women in this film were really not nice at all. Another wake up call of what NOT to do if you’re a woman.
- A pastor should never be alone with another person, especially a woman. This is a great way to protect your reputation. Billy Graham was just 1 that kept that rule throughout his ministry.
- Great trumpet and rapture scene.
- Loved the scene where the 2 men in the car almost, but didn’t cuss. It was a brilliant way of handling that.
- Great musical score.
- Some great eye-opening statements.
- Shows true vs. false Christianity.
The beginning leads you to expect a different kind of movie, so don’t let that throw you off.
Patrick Vann, who plays Julian, is fabulous in this film. Him and his friend had us laughing out loud, but especially Patrick. Great lines, great acting, a pure joy to watch.
