A film that came to theaters earlier this year and then everyone kind of forgot about it. No surprise there as this film is a bit of a chore. I'll get into all that later. The film seemed reminiscent of The Lake House when I saw the trailer, but I don't think that after seeing the film. I mean, this thing is far more confusing and muddled, and emotionally manipulative than it is being given credit for. Overall verdict, skip it and I'll tell you why.
The film is about a man who suffered abuse at the hands of his father when he was younger. Almost immediately we see his life in the future where he is the father of three children. One day during a camping trip the youngest daughter goes missing and it is suspected that she has been abducted by a serial killer. In the search for the killer the man stumbles across a cabin where three mysterious people live and they are collectively called "Papa". That might sound weird but then we find out that they are the trinity and the father must undergo a test of finding out how to forgive, and how to come to terms with his past, and go forth on a journey to handle his future. Like what the heck? If you haven't noticed this is a religion heavy film. The trio is there to show the father that God loves him and there is a plan for him. Hey, I have no problems with religion at all but if it completely impinges on a film then I honestly am not interested in seeing it. The film starts off in a certain manner and then just turns into a pamphlet for kindness and self discovery. It doesn't really know what it wants to do as a film and it seems a bit like bait and switch into something else. Topping it all off its a very dull and overlong experience. Sam Worthington better be banking on those Avatar sequels because honestly he hasn't done anything memorable or good in many years. Kind of faded to obscurity. Overall, this was a chore and I struggled through it. I didn't enjoy it and don't like films that push a religious message and try to mix in emotion and the feeling of something profound to get it across. Nope, not for me.
