It seems like everyone involved (especially the writers) did the bare minimum possible to get this to screen.

Very well put together. Intense and suspenseful, great acting, a good movie. David Oyelowo and Kate Mara deliver powerful performances . We are taken inside a terrifying situation, based on a true story. Absolutely compelling.

I think people were unfairly unkind to this movie. I don't know if it's an anti Christian bias or what it was. I didn't find it to be an infomercial for Rick Warren's book, as some have suggested. I thought the leads both did very credible jobs. The movie was actually what I hoped it would be and I found it intriguing.

This would have been better if done as a documentary. The real story has some interesting events, but there really wasn't enough here to fill out a full feature storyline. After the jailbreak, it really just wasn't very compelling to watch, so the last 2/3 of the movie was pretty flat. This felt more like a plug for a crappy book, and less like an entertaining film.

Based on a true set of events- This film is a fairly straightforward linear narrative, recounting the facts of Brian Nichols' murderous escape from the courthouse, leading to his kidnapping of Ashley Smith in Atlanta. Thought it would be more action filled than the drama and dialogue script
