'WAR ROOM': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five)

Another Christian drama flick, from the 'Kendrick Brothers'; the team that's also responsible for such previous 'worship-themed' films as 'FIREPROOF' and 'COURAGEOUS'. Alex Kendrick directed and co-wrote the movie, and Stephen Kendrick co-wrote and co-produced it. The story revolves around a couple, that turns to God; to fix their struggling marriage, with the help of an older, wiser, woman (named Miss Clara). The film was made on a budget of just $3 million, and it stars a cast of mostly unknown actors. I think it's a fairly decent Christian movie; compared to other, much worse, ones (I've seen recently).

Tony (T.C. Starling) and Elizabeth Jordan (Priscilla Shirer) seem to have it all; a nice house, two great jobs, and a polite young daughter (Alena Pitts). The couple are not happily married though, and their daughter feels resented. When Elizabeth, a realtor, attempts to sell a house, for a nice (older) lady, named Miss Clara (Karen Ambercrombie), she's inspired to renew her faith again. By doing so, Elizabeth also finds the courage to fix her troubled marriage; and save her struggling family.

The movie is filled with some cheesy dialogue, and bad acting (at times); but it also has a few good performances, and some inspiring moments (especially for those of faith). The low-budget shows, and it does feel (a lot) like a TV movie; but the film is still better than other Christian-themed flicks (that I've seen, in the past few years). It has a good message, and it's at least somewhat inspiring. Probably not something that will interest non-believers (at all); but it's target audience, should be more than pleased.
