The Encounter (2010)
2.5 out of 5 stars
Contrived and over-the-top preachy. Yes, I know, it’s a Christian film so it’s supposed to be that. But I disagree. It could have been much better. It barely rose above the level of what I would see performed at a local church as a liturgical drama. I guess I just prefer a subtler approach and something that reaches people where the are right now with a bit more real world. You can still tell a great story and send your audience home with a message, without giving them a concussion (from the two-by-four of theology or Bible quotations you hit them over head with).
