Trivia

This would make the second time that Sam Worthington and Radha Mitchell would have worked together. They started in "Rogue" back in 2007. See more »

Goofs

The entire movie, God is portrayed from a Christian point of view (Jesus, etc...). The prayers at Missy's funeral toward the end that can be heard in the background are the ones recited at Jewish funerals and have no connection to Christianity whatsoever. See more »

Quotes

Missy Phillips: Is the Great Spirit another name for Papa?
Mack Phillips: He is a spirit. And he is great. Right?
Missy Phillips: Then how come he's so mean?
Mack Phillips: Why'd you say that?
Missy Phillips: The Great Spirit made the princess jump off the cliff and made Jesus die on the cross. Don't you think that's mean?

Always trying to be reasonable... but....
25 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Where to start. I know, how about the end. I was so extremely happy when this ended. Never have I engaged in a flick that made me not just uncomfortable, but aggravated. To the core.

There is this little thing called storytelling. I don't care what kind of messages the movie, and I suppose the book, wanted to impart. The art of storytelling matters. This did not get past first base in this most basic function... how to tell a story. It was just one point nailed into your brain after the other. I may as well have just read a scientific journal or the periodic chart or the ingredients of a box of corn flakes and garnered the same bullet points.

I cannot even delve further into things like the acting, the production value, the... aw... fugetaboutit. That this failed on the most fundamental level of telling a story, it is senseless to examine anything else deeper. Absolutely dull as... well.. this will now be my new standard to when articulating the definition of empty, dull, gutless... a full expression of a vacuum.

To the writers, directors, those who fund things like this... stop. Pick another field. Storytelling is not something you understand, so stop before you try it again.

An absolute zero of a film.
