    The film has entertaining moments, but these are clearly secondary to its proselytizing intentions.

    The pace is stumbling, the characters are broad, the makeup and the performances uneven, though Sorbo dives into his tactless, unethical indoctrinator role with Satanic glee.

    Even grading on a generous curve, this strident melodrama about the insidious efforts of America’s university system to silence true believers on campus is about as subtle as a stack of Bibles falling on your head.

    Even by the rather lax standards of the Christian film industry, God’s Not Dead is a disaster.

    Any just God would likely recoil from the ham-fisted and spurious defense put forth in this film.

    typical religious propaganda, of course the movie chooses to portray the atheist as the bad guy since this is a religious movie. The Acting is horrible, I mean what kind of sane minded college professor would attack his student like that? This movie is offensive to the atheist and secular community as long as other non Christian religious communities. Full Review »

    To put it simply, this movie might as well be made by the Nazis, portraying them as the victims of WW2 from the Jews. Seriously tho, this is sickening propaganda. It literally switches the role of Christians with anyone else and tries to make it seem as if they are somehow a super minority that is bullied by everyone else. Worst off is that the film tries to give a few cases where such a thing has happened to Christians, but apparently they thought everyone watching this would be far too stupid to fact check, because for anyone who does, you'll find that none of the cases listed actually has anything to do with what happened to the main character in the film. In fact, most of the example cases they gave actually revolve around Christians trying to gain privileges over other groups within schools. It doesn't matter what religion you follow, if any... This movie will make you want to puke at how disgusting this film tries to change reality. Full Review »

    I cannot describe how wrong and shameful this movie is, not to mention how easily the producers of this movie fill their own pockets at the expense of true believing Christians. Although I'm an atheist, I'm offended for Christians, Atheists, Buddhists, Muslims, and many other groups that are slandered/ misrepresented in this film Full Review »
