RISEN

MOVIE TRAILER & MORE INFO: http://www.cmdafrica.com/#!risen/j4qb3
WITNESS THE MANHUNT THAT CHANGED THE FACE OF HISTORY.

Synopsis:Risen1
Follows the epic biblical story of the resurrection, as told through the eyes of a non-believer. Clavius, a powerful Roman military tribune, and his aide Lucius, are tasked with solving the mystery of what happened to Jesus in the weeks following the crucifixion, in order to disprove the rumours of a risen messiah and prevent an uprising in Jerusalem.

Dove Review:
Risen captures the powerful influence of Christ and his followers on a Roman military tribune and is symbolic of the life-changing salvation experience converting the Gentile as well as the Jew. Joseph Fiennes is outstanding as Clavius, the Roman tribune, who is battle weary and weary of life, period. He carries out Pilate’s whims (played by Peter Firth) and has little patience with the Jewish Sanhedrin. Clavius is given the task of finding the hiding disciples, and he does locate Bartholomew, played humorously and charmingly by Joe Manjón. When Clavius demands that Bartholomew spills his knowledge as to the whereabouts of the other disciples, Bartholomew replies, “They are…everywhere!” and he laughs with delight.

The film contains a few head-scratching moments: Barabbas, who was released when Christ was condemned, is speared in the head and killed before Christ even dies on the cross. But, for the most part, the film does a good job in showing that Clavius just can’t explain away some things about Christ, his followers, and that empty tomb.

We are awarding it our “Faith-Based” Seal with a Caution for Violence. Its message is powerful, and Fiennes does a good job in keeping us engaged. The viewer can always tell by a simple expression on his face that he has questions going on in his mind about this Christ, questions the other Romans cannot explain. What he learns about this humble carpenter will literally change his life. –  www.dove.org

16SL – NOT RECOMMENDED FOR FAMILIES

Synopsis:
trainwreck_posterIn Trainwreck, Amy Townsend, a commitment-phobic, promiscuous woman, takes her father’s opinion that marriage and monogamy don’t work. The men’s magazine Amy works for assigns her to write a story on Aaron, a sports doctor working with star athletes. Attracted to one another, Amy and Aaron begin dating. When Aaron turns their fling into something more serious, Amy gets cold feet and is unsure how to respond. Can Amy make the necessary changes in order to find the happiness that eluded her parents?

MovieGuide Review:
Trainwreck features a brilliant, unexpected comedic performance by Amy Schumer as Amy. Another nice twist is the use of basketball stars like LeBron James as supporting characters. Overall, the script is well written by Judd Aptow, but it becomes rather predictable. A largely godless pagan worldview drives the behaviour of the main characters, but few others exhibit a more moral approach to life. Finally, despite the female protagonist deciding to change her hedonistic lifestyle at the end, the rest of Trainwreck contains a lot of foul language, extreme lewd content and some substance abuse. So, it’s ultimately unacceptable. – www.movieguide.org
