War Room – Shannon in Kansas City

I’m off from work for a week for Holiday vacation.  One of my plans for my break is to catch up on a few movies that I’ve been wanting to see.  One of those movies is “War Room” which  I watched last night on Movies on Demand.

The film was pretty good but I didn’t like it as much as a lot of other people did.  “War Room” has a great Christian message about the power of prayer that a lot of people that has encouraged many.  I would describe the film as a love story minus the sappiness.  It also has a great message about mentorship and family values.

I have enjoyed other Christian movies such as “Fireproof” and “Remember the Giants” more.  There were parts of “War Room” that are a bit dull but it is definitely worth seeing.  It finishes strong.

I also like that the movie features a mostly Black cast but the film is not about what Hollywood seems to think are typically Black subject matters.  i.e. picking cotton, organizing marches, playing basketball, gang banging  or break dance competitions just to name a few.  I have thoroughly enjoyed movies that cover all of these subject matters but it’s a shame that Hollywood has such a narrow view of African Americans.  It’s great to see something different.

I would recommend “War Room” if you haven’t seen it yet.
