Review by Logan
Superheroes are supposed to be invincible. They take down the world’s villains, through much pain and turmoil, and they always come out of it in one piece. The truly great pieces of the genre, whether in the original comic book form or through films and TV shows, always come when the writers manage to make us as the audience truly worried that maybe, just maybe, our hero isn’t going to make it out okay after all.
My review today is one that we here at LTBM was asked to take a look at, staring Michael Madsen and Kristen Quintrall.
This is a Christian based film with spiritual applications. It is reportedly based on a true story. The premise is about 2 people in life that are on different paths that end up with paths that cross and then end on the same journey. One is a woman, Linda, whose real life experiences this movie is based upon.

Ian looks across the diner booth at Sofi, her unique fusion of blue and hazel eyes staring back into his. “The eye is the one sticking point that religious people use to discredit evolution,” he tells her. “They use it as proof of a… intelligent designer… I’m looking to end the debate once and for all with clear, clean facts. Data points of every stage of eye evolution.”
“Why are you working so hard to disprove God,” Sofi asks him.
“Who proved that God was there in the first place?” Ian playfully retorts.

I was excited back in 2013 to see the slate of 2014 “Christian/Bible” based movies that would be released. Sadly, it did not take long at all for my excitement to dwindle. (The Son of God) Being a Christian I desire to see great movies based on the Bible. I desire to see great movies with Christian ideals. Sadly, what I seem too often get are visually well done movies (financially backed) from Hollywood that are “loosely interpreted” or an “artistic interpretation” of some Bible story. My other options seem to be poorly acted and often poorly scripted movies with good Christian ideals.
On Friday, April 18th, I was able to take my beautiful wife on a much needed date to see Heaven Is for Real. I entered with high hopes; yet leery skepticism.
