  • Summary: Everything can change in an instant... and take a lifetime to unravel. When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God... and everyone else. Can Mac and his new patrol partner, Sgt. Sam Wright, somehow join forces to help one another when it's impossible to look past their differences - especially the most obvious one? Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal wounds by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer "The Grace Card"... and never underestimate the power of God's love. (Samuel Goldwyn)

    This is a solid, sincere affirmation of faith and forgiveness. Praise the Lord, and pass the popcorn.

    The Grace Card is a surprisingly hard-edged, faith-based drama.

    Blessed with fine performances, credible dialogue and slick production values that belie a reportedly paltry budget, The Grace Card ranks among the better religious-themed indies released in recent years.

    To say that The Grace Card piles it on is an understatement of profound dimensions.

    The Grace Card becomes increasingly involving and assured, yet when the inevitable moment of truth arrives for the coming-apart Mac, the film lapses into melodrama, contrivance and improbability.

    By refusing to even suggest that racism is a walloping social problem rather than an individual, circumstantial one with an easy fix, it does a rotten job of preaching to the choir.

    Faith-based audiences may find comfort here, but the film's heavy-handedness is a burden it can't overcome.

    I don't understand how a documentary about gay life in the 80's can score a 95 and this movie gets such a low rating. This is an excellent movie. If you have any type of moral fiber you will enjoy it. I am amazed at how really good movies get bad reviews from the "experts". Just because you may not agree with the message, doesn't mean its a bad movie. I didn't give 'broke back mountain' a bad review because I didn't like its message. Expand
