Very inspirational movie. It definitely makes you check your faith in God.
You cry, I cry, ... we all cry. Makes you look at things in a different view point.
After seeing The Shack — after enduring, that is, its 132 minutes of blissed-out New Age religiosity — I’ve become a believer. I believe there is no role Octavia Spencer can’t play with convincing feeling and an impeccably straight face.
However universal the perennial questions and struggles that The Shack illuminates, under Stuart Hazeldine’s plodding direction, its faith-based brand of self-help feels like being trapped in someone else’s spiritual retreat — in real time.
The Shack is a well-acted and sometimes moving but far too often slow-paced and unconvincing spiritual journey.
