|Ian Colletti never goes full retard in the Christian family flick Jimmy (2013).|
Bad news on the doorstep:While definitely sidestepping the heavy-handed approach so often the bane of most faith-based North American family flicks, Jimmy is structurally a telemovie and would make for bible study group screenings faster than it would commission an okay from someone who paid full price for the DVD looking for a family feature. The voluminous events in the book don't always get the proper pacing or focus that would make the narrative more sprightly. If this fell to more ambitious hands, we could feel like we did in K-Pax (2001) or Powder (1995). As it is, we simply have to respect it as a product that's marketed to the religious.
I can't remember if I cried:The disappointing stock music doesn't allow it.
Amacam joker, berapa bintang lu mau kasi?I appreciate and the titular performance and I like the message. Gary Wheeler and Robert Whitlow can carry on with more collaborations.★★1/2
