It’s not easy pleasing movie critics. It’s even more difficult if the subject is a Christian film.
The most popular Christian movie of all time – The Passion of the Christ – was liked by only 49 percent of critics at RottenTomatoes.com, the popular go-to website that compiles film reviews. Likewise, the most popular Christian film of 2016, Miracles from Heaven, received a score of 43, while the top faith movie of 2015, War Room, got a 33.
But if you dig deep enough into RottenTomatoes.com, you’ll find several Christian movies that received the website’s coveted “fresh” label, which is awarded when a movie is liked by at least 60 percent of critics. We found eight such films. (To be included on our list, a movie had to have strong Christian content and had to have received at least 10 reviews.)
Of course, we’re not saying that movies not liked by critics are bad. War Room – which mainstream critics rejected – remains one of my all-time favorites.
Following are the eight Christian films that received a fresh rating from Rotten Tomatoes. The film title is accompanied by the Rotten Tomatoes score:
