Movie Review – God Bless the Broken Road

Even though the critics panned God Bless The Broken Road, I did find a few redeeming qualities I’d like to share with you. The movie touches on a few issues, that sadly, are all too prevalent in our world today: we have the ‘war widow’ trying desperately to hold her world together without the support of a husband. And a child whose life has been turned upside down because war left her without her father, while her mother works odd hours in a diner.

This movie stresses the importance of faith, even when your world is falling down around you. I’m sure this message will resonate with many people in the audience. All that having been said, my criticism deals with the technical aspects of the movie. The acting was sub-par, with the exception of the race car owner played by Gary Grubbs, one of the best character actors in Hollywood. The pacing was excruciatingly slow, and the directing left much to be desired. Many times the camera lingered on the sad face of Amber, and left me thinking, ‘Okay, we get it; she’s sad.’ A three-second shot of her sad face is acceptable, but a fifteen-second shot of the sad face is annoying.

Parents can comfortably take their children to see this movie, and later discuss the message of faith. I give God Bless The Broken Road a C, because it was an average movie with an average story.

About the Peetimes: God Bless The Broken Road is a faith-based movie that’s more drama driven, with very little action. Getting 2 Peetimes was fairly easy. Each gives you 4 minutes to break, so let your bladder decide.
