A troubled youth vandalizes a church. For his punishment, he does community service at the church with the woodcarver whose work he vandalized. Starring John Ratzenberger, Dakota Daulby, Woody Jeffreys.
This is a typical Christian film with the usual message. It just falls flat in delivery. It is a solid story, but the writing failed to give the characters any depth. No one is as placid as these characters. In a situation and type of story like this, there should be a deeper probing into the characters’ motivations and heart issues. Ratzenberger was wonderful, and the other actors tried to match his quality but weren’t quite able to. Despite its apparent flaws, I do still recommend it, especially to a Christian audience. For its overall message, this film is worth a watch.
