It has been said that “religion is box office poison.” Mel Gibson disproved that 11 years ago with The Passion of the Christ.
But what about Noah? What about Exodus: God and Kings? They did badly, but they were not faithful to the Bible — neither in letter nor spirit.
Meanwhile low budget Christian films made by a church from Georgia show over and over that religion is not box office poison. I refer to the Kendrick brothers, who made the recent independent film success, War Room, which I saw recently and enjoyed and found uplifting.
It is still in the theatres — nine weekends after its opening on 8/28.
War Room is an explicitly Christian movie. The title is in reference to one’s prayer closet, where true prayer involves true spiritual warfare. The film is the latest product of the Kendrick Brothers, who madeFacing the Giants, Fireproof, and Courageous, among other films.
The production quality of Christian films is on the rise.
