Christian Movie Review

Christian movie reviews are not just for Christian movies. It is important to look at what is being offered in the cinematic world as a whole and find the movie that most appeals to you and your family.



Christian Movie Review Overview
by Emily Burson

Looking for a Christian Movie Review?

With literally thousands of movies available for viewing and purchase, how do you know you are getting something that will not offend you and will inspire and uplift your moral values? This is especially important when you are thinking about your family. How many times have you heard a movie review and thought, "That's great, but what about this or that?" Have you ever found yourself longing for an honest, Christian Movie Review?

If you have been looking for a Christian Movie Review, you are not alone in your quest. As movies become more and more violent and graphic, people are turning to places where they can find out what the movie offers, or doesn't offer. Movies are meant to be an escape and a journey into a world that is different from the one in which we currently live. There is nothing wrong with that escape, but are you escaping to a place where you feel comfortable?

Christian movie reviews are not just for Christian movies. It is important to look at what is being offered in the cinematic world as a whole and find the movie that most appeals to you and your family. By doing a little research, you can find a great movie with a great message that will not leave you frustrated or embarrassed by what you have just seen.

For my first Christian movie review, I would like to discuss "Holes." This is a movie based on a Newberry Award Winning Children's book by the same name. "Holes" is the story of a loveable loser, Stanley, played by Shia LeBeouf, who finds himself serving at a camp for problem children. It seems like he and his entire family are unable to catch a break. What he thinks is a better option that being behind bars turns into the most traumatic experience of his life. Each of the kids at the camp are required to dig holes as the camp warden looks for a treasure lost many years ago.

"Holes" jumps back and forth between the present and the past as we learn the history of Stanley's family and their connection to the mysterious treasure. The Christian movie review comes into play when thinking about who should see this movie. Based on a bestselling book, many children will already be familiar with the scarier parts of the movie, making it more appealing for parents. The warden paints her nails with snake venom and it may be a little scary for younger children in places, but "Holes" is, overall, a great family film. Be ready to discuss the movie later!

Like any good Disney movie, the good guy does finish first, and the people that deserve something bad to happen to them get it. "Holes" contains some violence and a couple foul words, but remains a movie that will keep children entertained and adults thinking. "Holes" is safe family entertainment, and that is this Christian movie review.
