Why all the hostility?
I finally watched this film for the first time and decided to go on Imdb to rate it. I read at least half of the comments, both positive and negative. I don’t see anything wrong with giving a deeply passionate message on fighting inner demons, forgiveness, and a transformed life in the salvation of Christ. After the Second World War, many men found inner peace through salvation and became ministers, and planted intergenerational seeds. They were men of faith. Billy Graham wasn’t a perfect man, as there are none, but his message was a shining light to many. He was active during the civil rights movement, and even worked with MLK Jr and Southern ministers to desegregate the South. However, I do understand what some of the negative reviewers are saying. Some modern Christian films can be corny and overly dramatic to the point of spoiling the moment for some.
At the same time, a lot of films such as “Jesus camp” about Christian youth propaganda, brainwashing, and making it seem like the norm, is way overly dramatic. The film “Boy Erased” about conversion therapy, is an inaccurate portrayal. Even decades ago, that wasn’t all that common. Scientists once “believed” (meaning based on faith), that being gay was a mental illness. That is far removed from the belief of many of today’s Christians. True Christians believe that only God can change someone. If there are any remaining stragglers believing that sending a gay teen to “conversion therapy” is a solution, then they are missing the biblical mark. A lack of understanding, and a shared bitterness towards religion, leads to the creation of these types of films. Filmmakers pick rare instances and blow them up in a full feature film in order to politicize it.
My dislikes for Broken 2 obviously had nothing to do with the film having a Christian aim. At the same time, giving the film one star just because you strongly dislike anything to do with Christianity, shows your deeply imbedded bias. I’ve seen plenty of films that irritated me to the point of desiring to give it one star. But at least I try to have an open mind to be realistic, understand the message, and look past my personal beliefs in order to give films a fair and unbiased rating. Some of these one star raters either did not watch the film, or allowed their bitterness for Christianity to cloud their vision and overcome the important message of “forgiveness.”
There’s nothing like a good true-life story!
Before you pooh-pooh movies about a person’s life changing moment, see the continuing (Unbroken) true story of one man’s journey from WWII prisoner of war to healing and wholeness. This 2nd movie abut Zamperini’s life story was even better than the first. The quality of production, storyline consistency and acting was perfect. It’s an emotional movie for sure and some of the struggles Zamperini lived through were unknown to me. While this is a movie that is family friendly, it contains a powerful message.
