God's Not Dead (2014)
Critic Consensus: Deploying sledgehammer theatrics instead of delivering its message with a dose of good faith, God's Not Dead makes for bad drama and an unconvincing argument to the unconverted.

Critic Reviews for God's Not Dead
Despite the campus setting, little about the story is intelligently designed.
Even by the rather lax standards of the Christian film industry, God's Not Dead is a disaster.
The film is slickly produced, with a competent cast, and although it sometimes stacks the deck shamelessly in defense of its credo, it does allow a few dissenting voices to slip into the debate.
The Almighty deserves better advocacy than he gets in this typically ham-fisted Christian campus melodrama.
Audience Reviews for God's Not Dead
One of the most overstuffed and shallow screenplays in cinema history is complimented with some terrible visuals and some horribly one-sided messages that will be offensive not only to minorities, but also potentially Christians. God may not be dead, but with this movie, it sure seems like good cinema is.
Do casting directors have to go to special agencies to assemble a cast so bereft of talent? This film is probably best appreciated by those who have not been to college and have no need for intellectual conversations with others.
It's a little corny, but God's Not Dead has a positive message about standing up for one's beliefs. Based on a series of court cases where colleges have infringed upon students' religious liberties, freshman Josh Wheaton takes up his philosophy instructor's challenge to prove that there's a God; and in doing so he starts a ripple effect that spreads throughout his community. The acting's pretty poor all around, and the writing's not that good either. Yet it's rather interesting how the story plays out and interconnects the different characters. And, there's an inspirational quality that comes through as well. Though it has some problems, God's Not Dead ends up being more than the sum of its parts.
