The Grace Card

on 11/6/2011

This movie could have been great, but it is only good. The story is better than the movie. The two male lead actors carry their weight well. They both show experience. And of course, there is the brief appearance of veteran actor Louis Gossett, Jr., who gives the movie credibility just by his showing up in it. However, the rest of the cast don’t seem natural. They seem wooden and their dialogue is stiff. It’s as if they are too self-conscious about being in the movie and delivering their lines. The guy playing the surgeon is especially bad. (He’s an actual M.D., as the credits state.) They forgot that acting is play-acting, or “pretending” like you do when you’re a kid. And the music ruins it. The church choir singing is great. That is natural. But the overlay of Christian pop songs is cheesy and takes away the believability. It’s more of the emotional manipulation that is so over-the-top, you just want to shake your head in disbelief. (You know, there really is not a soundtrack to life. There is no music playing in the air. Any music in a movie should be a natural part of the story, like the church choir singing in the worship service scenes, or a song playing over the radio.) There are times when the storyline becomes predictable. I guessed way in advance how it was going to turn out. I saw it coming. Even so, this movie is worth watching. Read More

Editors Note
Note This earnest evangelical drama draws inspiration from the Bible verse Hebrews 4:16 ("We will find grace to help us when we need it") in its tale of a police officer named Bill "Mac" McDonald (Michael Joiner) whose life is shattered (and his faith severely challenged) when he loses his son in a tragic accident. Eighteen years of rage and hostility ensue, marked by rapidly crumbling relationships with his family members and strained relationships on the force. Events reach a fever pitch, however, when Mac gets partnered up in the squad car with Sam Wright (Michael Higgenbottom), an African-American ordained minister-turned-cop with a loving and supportive family. Despite the many obstacles standing in the way, the men gradually work toward overcoming their differences and helping one another.
