Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A faith-based drama about redemption and renewal that is blessed with the saving graces of persuasive performances, handsome production values and some undeniably affecting moments of spiritual uplift."
‑ Joe Leydon, Variety
"Unconditional is a little movie with a big heart, a message film that doesn't taste like medicine."
‑ David Martindale, Dallas Morning News
"While strongly acted by stars Lynn Collins and Michael Ealy, it's a clumsy picture that feels like it's going to add up to more than it actually does."
‑ Brian Orndorf, Blu-ray.com
"This inspirational drama, while trafficking in cliches, manages not to deliver its message too heavily."
‑ Frank Scheck, Hollywood Reporter
"If only McCorkle had a bit more, er, faith in his audience."
‑ Gary Goldstein, Los Angeles Times
"While the script is a bit thin and the murder mystery overlay feels a bit forced, Unconditional is a gentle and sincere movie about the power and potential of love. And Papa Joe is a character worth getting to know."
‑ Philip Martin, Arkansas Democrat-Gazette
"Contrived and simplistic."
‑ Mark Jenkins, Washington Post
"A strong story (based on true facts)and an endearing cast make this a good movie experience."
‑ Jackie K. Cooper, jackiekcooper.com
"In a year where what divides us seems to get more attention than what unites us, it's enough to restore your, well, faith."
‑ Chris Foran, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel
