God’s Not Dead Review
“God’s Not Dead” follows several characters as they face life challenges. The main story revolves around an atheist philosophy professor, played by Sorbo, who challenges a Christian college freshman to a debate. Subplots include a reporter struggling with her cancer diagnosis; a woman hiding her Christian faith from her family; and two ministers trying to understand a series of bad luck.
“I fell in love with this [movie] right away,” Sorbo said. “We all knew we had a great movie with a great script. It was wonderful to be a part of this. By the second week, we knew that we had something much bigger than any of us thought. I think it is sending out a message that we want more product that has a message that we care about and characters we care about.”

When films are too obvious with their messages, they become tacky and unbelievable. What makes that a little ridiculous is that I am a very blatantly religious person. I guess maybe that makes me a bit of a cynic but I do think that there is no way that a tacky religious film is going to appeal to anyone other than the religious.
This may be one of the few cases in which I was wrong.
