      Tracey R Lovely movie, thought provoking and thoroughly charming. Well scripted and the cast were excellent. We stumbled upon it by accident on YouTube and it was so engaging we watched it all the way through. Recommend it. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/08/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie sucked me in from the very beginning and held me spellbound to the end. I just need someone to explain Brutus at the very end. I have many theories but need to hear from others. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review dustin d Frank vs. God is a religious film, despite the (few) accusations of Evangelical Christians against it (this movie wasn't released with much fanfare). The message, though, may confuse some as it's both nondenominational and respectful of atheists' worldview. I see these as the movie's strengths, along with a good script, humor and fine acting (particularly a nuanced performance from Ever Carradine as Rachel Levin, great-great granddaughter of evangelical author Beverly Carradine, and granddaughter of David Carradine, who played Jim Casy, a preacher who lost his faith in The Grapes of Wrath--I like to think both these movies take place in the same cinematic universe, and Rachel is Casy's granddaughter). Unlike most religious films, which blatantly preach to the choir, like God's Not Dead, another movie in which God is "put on trial" released just two months prior to Frank vs. God, this movie treats both atheists and religious leaders charitably, and accurately, if simplistically, depicts their views. God's Not Dead and its ilk are shoddy and the scripts are indistinguishable from a Chick tract. The movie's flippant and occasionally hilarious tone, as well as the subject matter, is probably what upsets Evangelicals, who clearly didn't get the point. While David Frank is never converted, as would be the character arc in a lesser religious film, he does come to a sort of peace with God and has a religious experience in a sense, which is why I don't understand the Evangelical reaction to the film. A legitimate criticism of the film is its cartoonish special effects. However, as the filmmakers appeared to be working on a relatively low budget, and this isn't explicitly a "special effects film," some leniency is warranted. Frank vs. God is funny and entertaining and should be seen by a wider audience. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member A great , complex, touching, sometimes very irreverent yet other times very reverent movie with many twists and turns. One of the best movies I have seen in a long time! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/23 Full Review Audience Member Painfully rotten. Atheists have their voice over everything, can they just leave God alone, or must they admit, now, that's He exists to deny Him. The voice of atheism ring through everything. Leave God out of your mouth if you're truly atheist. If you really believe God doesn't exist, there's no need for all your propaganda. There's no morality objectively in your world view so religion is as moral as it claims to be. Either be consistent to say there is a God and you hate Him, or shut up and sit down. The only true atheists, will shut up and sit down. Anyone who responds to this is a theist but believes in an evil God, or will provide actually proof there was some other way. In which case, they believe in God, but don't like the outcome of that. Or the other religions of the world. Atheist religion is taught in school, the teachers are the rabbis and priests. Schools are their churches. Indoctrination is the goal. This movie sucked because it sucked, not because I believe in God. I have seen movies that never mention the name of God, and liked them. This one was a stinker. It was rotten to the core. It was rife with propaganda and logical fallacies that were refuted in the 1800's. It was a fail because it was a fail. Just like that other terrible movie. Charlie's Angels 2019. Barf. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review Radwa H Itï¿ 1/2 1/2(TM)s really a good movie with a great performance from the cast. It does put up lots of questions about religion and god. Faith and beliefs. There is no evidence or a satisfying andwer to any of those questions. But the only thing that remains is the spirituality of the faith people have in god and that is actually the whole point of religion. Keeping to the faith.

      Alex Arabian Film Inquiry Frank Vs. God makes solid arguments for and against the effectiveness of religion and the existence of god, but, like reality, doesn't offer any life-changing answers. Jul 3, 2017 Full Review Read all reviews
