Do You Believe from the same folks who gave us the God's Not Dead movies and both of those take their model from those secular films, Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and most of all Crash. It's Crash with a Christian twist to it. The center character is a street preacher who runs into minister Ted McGinley and asks a simple question, Do You Believe?
Meaning are you really believing or just going through the motions? The actions of the various characters whose lives intersect at various points in the film. In the end nearly the entire cast is involved in a multiple vehicle crash on a city bridge. That climax is gripping and well staged.
In this cast the two performances that stand out are Madison Pettis as the homeless and pregnant teen taken in by Ted McGinley and Shwayze as a young gangbanger who takes to heart the words of Delroy Lindo.
I'm in agreement with the reviewer who said that the characters are a bit too goody goody. That even the bad ones for the most part aren't really that bad. Makes it a bit hard to swallow the plot premises.
Still for a Christian film it's not bad entertainment.
Do You Believe?
Do You Believe?
A dozen different souls-all moving in different directions, all longing for something more. As their lives unexpectedly intersect, they each are about to discover there is power in the Cross of Christ ... even if they don't yet believe it. When a local pastor is shaken to the core by the visible faith of an old street-corner preacher, he is reminded that true belief always requires action. His response ignites a faith-fueled journey that powerfully impacts everyone it touches in ways that only God could orchestrate. This stirring new film from the creators of God's Not Dead arrives in theaters Spring of 2015. More than a movie, it's a question we all must answer in our lifetimes: DO YOU BELIEVE?
