Movie Review- 90 Minutes in Heaven
Release Date: Tuesday December 1, 2015
Well there’s a first for everything right? I was asked to take a look at the new DVD release 90 Minutes in Heaven starring Hayden Christensen and give it my honest review for my readers… and I did! So this is my very first movie review — whoop whoop! Not only am I going to tell you what I think about this film and if you should spend 2 hours of your life watching it or not, but I also snagged an extra copy to give to one of YOU! Hip hip hooray! So keep reading to the end and see how you can win.
- There is power in numbers! When one finds themselves in a midst of a health crisis, call on fellow believers to fast and pray for you! It’s important to have a close circle of friends and family surrounding you to pray even when you find yourself feeling unworthy.
Therefore confess your sins to each other and pray for each other so that you may be healed. The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective. James 5:16
- There is power in a praying wife! Eva found herself looking at a mutilated resemblance of her husband after his car crash. Like most wives, we only desire to see the strongest form of our husbands, so to see her husband literally fighting for his life, she had to stand firm and declare the word of God over him. You will live and not die!
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Jeremiah 29:11
- Through her frustration, she honored her husband! Don’s recovery took months, and while he was in no position to make sound decisions for their family due to his vulnerable state, she continued to seek his wishes and blessings.
So again I say, each man must love his wife as he loves himself, and the wife must respect her husband. Ephesians 5:33
Despite these great themes and messages presented in the film, I must warn you that this is not your typical Christian film produced by the Kendrick brothers (FireProof, War Room, Facing the Giants). Those films were entertaining while delivering life changing faith challenges that inspired and encouraged with a bang. This film, while faith-filled, was BORRRRING!!!! Like head jerking, nap taking, accidental slob type boring. It was extremely slow with absolutely no humor, and the few attempts at jokes left me thinking, “was that supposed to make me laugh?” The title 90 Minutes in Heaven also elude that the film will explore the characters 90 minutes in heaven, and it does not. At all. Because of that I definitely questioned the title of the film. Why is it called this again? #confused
Overall, I give this film 2 out of 5 stars.
But, my opinion shouldn’t affect your desire to check it out for yourself!
