The Shack Movie Reviews

  • Great message

    I don't usually write reviews on films. However, the message in this movie is very powerful.
  • Home Run

    No movie is perfect , right? But The Shack does a great job on covering so many elements of what many of us encounter in our spiritual walk. Awesome film.
  • Touching... made me cry!

    I absolutely love this movie. It is a wonderful movie. If you are a Christian watch this movie!!
  • Examination!

    With a lot more Christian movies coming out these days you gotta compare it, to see if it matches up with the Bible. I noticed that it had a lot of emotion, and it was very moving. But you have to be careful with emotion. You can sight of truth if you're caught up in all of the emotion. When they introduced themselves as the trinity (The Father, Spirit, and Son), I was looking to see how it lined up, or when they had a woman and then a man of the people he knew. You have to look out for the things that might not be true, and if even one thing doesn't line up with the Bible it is not to accept, or watch it. That's why a bible study group at my church watched it and then discussed the movie afterwards. If you're curious about a Christian movie, I would suggest going with a group and discussing the after, to see how it lines up with the Bible. Other than that I liked the movie.
  • Movie Subtly introduces universalism and dangerous doctrines

    Discernment is so needed and understanding those who have written this book and promoted this movie. Well the truth sets one free, lies hold one bondage! Cults use double meanings making one to believe that they believe what you believe, when in reality they believe in such a different mindset. Be careful! Be careful! Be careful!
  • Touching and Moving

    Greatly written.... the directors did awesome just enough of everything in all the rights spots/timing.
  • A Very Great, but Emotional Movie

    The movie was fantastic. Very emotional, but still gets to it's point without being too slow. If you have a daughter that is very young you might certainly cry. I think it is fine if the Jesus is symbolized as a woman because it symbolizes something in the movie. Anyway great movie with a story that is relatable to a lot of people.
  • Touching, real truth

    Not surprised rotten tomatoes didn't get into this one. It's a call out on selfishness, forgiveness and a relationship with God. Not exactly Hollywood's favorite style of living. This move was excellent and they honored the portrayal of God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit with respect, humor and realism. Great movie. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
  • This film is amazing

    This film is by far one of the most powerful films I have seen in a long time.
  • Movie teaches about forgiveness even in the toughest situation

    The critics once again get so hung up on their anti-Christian sentiment that the Miss the bigger message of the movie. Forgiveness not because the man that killed his daughter deserved it but because he could not move forward with his life without being able to forgive. Powerful movie not for those who are not willing to deal with forgiveness in their own lives.
