JC E (nl) wrote: Let's be honest here, I only saw this movie because I am transfixed by the sheer power of Jennifer Hudson (The Three Stooges). She's got some serious pipes. I saw the previews for this and I wanted to see it just for her. The story didn't look that appealing, nor did the presence of Forest Whittaker (Out of the Furnace), Angela Bassett (Olympus Has Fallen), Mary J. Blige (Rock of Ages), Tyrese Gibson (Fast Six), or newcomer Jacob Latimore. Hudson has some soul stirring moments, but nothing that really meshes into something memorable. In fact, that's kind of the jist of the whole movie - unmemorable. That's not to say that the performances aren't heartfelt - though, Whittaker's sermon/show seems quite awkward - nor is the music off-putting. But it just never really sticks with you. Maybe the stage version - upon which this film is based - is better. But there isn't one single theme that rings true, except maybe that of forgiveness. And the dream-like sequence with the modern take on the nativity story was just awkward. It's not the worst Christmas movie out there, but there are a lot better ones to sit through.

victor l (ru) wrote: A bestselling latinamerican novel adapted to the big screen with international stars in the cast. One of the very few books that get this interest. The result: A poorly made film with awful makeup, casting, cinematography and direction. Miscast actors: Jeremy Irons from young to old, Winona Ryder (who didn't take anything after Irons or Streep), Meryl Streep was too old to play young Clara and this is terribly evident. The only Oscar worhty performance was Glenn Close as Ferula. The book is really thick and the film adaptation wasn't fair enough to its success. I think it should be remade as a miniseries someday.
