    One of the single worst movies I've seen in my life. The acting, while decent, is nothing compared to the garbage script. I honestly like catholic movies, courageous is one of my favorites, but this movie just shoves Catholicism down your throat and tries to make feel sorry for a cast of completely unlivable characters. It is pure garbage, do not watch it.

  1. The biggest hole in this picture is not so much whether an audience will buy its miracles but whether an audience will care about Henry Poole. Wilson hits the same notes in virtually every scene without any change to his physical rhythms or moods.

    Picture's tendency to lecture on the power of faith and religion and on the demerits of science seems to assume an almost childlike audience that needs to be spoon-fed Pablum.

    A film that could have used some of the genuine intrigue of Pellington's thrillers to help offset the increasingly doe-eyed narrative.
