Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"When most movies are selling it loud and fast, this one sneaks in a message that seems revolutionary for its quiet confidence that you can't make it to the top without something to believe in."
‑ Chris Hewitt (St. Paul), St. Paul Pioneer Press
"... offers a realistic view of the world that may surprise people who haven't seen a Christian film lately."

‑ Christopher Null, Filmcritic.com
