Soul Surfer

We finally watched Soul Surfer the other night.  I am glad that I was not expecting much because I would have been really disappointed.  The movie was okay at best.  Acting...two thumbs down, and as far as being a "Christian" movie...well if you consider mentioning God a couple times, having a Christian song in the movie, leaving Christ out of the scripture verse they quoted. etc. etc... luke warm at best!!!  I am a bit disappointed by other Christian organizations recommending this movie.  I shouldn't be surprised, luke warm seems to be the trend.  So many missed opportunities in this movie...such a bummer!

  1. Hope you watched it with Neal and not the girls- I still think the shark attack is very scary! Even though I said we liked it..... I've never understood the concept of "Christian" movies. They seem to always fail because they attempt to cross-over to the world for increased ticket sales. Alexandra has become a big Bethany fan (who in real life appears to be born again!) This might be my first comment on your blog!!
