“I Can Only Imagine”: “Tremendous true story” becomes a “long-shot” box office hit

Ben DaviesRebel Host | Rebel Reel Reviews

 

Secular critics are dismissing the new film I Can Only Imagine as nothing more than Christian "catnip."

But meanwhile, whether they like it or not, this little film is giving the big-budget, star-studded "spirituality" movie A Wrinkle in Time some intense competition at the box office.

Will Hollywood finally get the message?

I Can Only Imagine is the true story of a young man who endured a childhood of unimaginable abuse, but went on to write one of the most popular and beloved songs of all time.

But a movie has to have more than an inspirational story to be a success.

How does I Can Only Imagine measure up?

Thanks for the review, Ben. I did not know about this movie, and when I listened to your review I went to see it. I was in tears through the last 30 minutes. What a great story of redemption and forgiveness. Absolutely loved it. A must see for all, especially, as you said, in this day when there is so much turmoil in the world and so many hurting people who need Jesus! What a great, uplifting story!!

Hollywood has been preaching to a shrinking choir. They have handed production over to SJWs & lectured to their diminishing audiences instead of bringing them decent stories. Movies, even low budget movies, the vacuum Hollywood has left will get an audience. Vox is irrelevant.

Sounds like a worthwhile movie to see, not too many of those being produced for a number of years.
Ben, thanks for the review.
