      Matt H Now I really enjoy Hillsong's music but Lord Almighty this movie was boring. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review Audience Member Since Hillsong UNITED is my favorite band, I tried to watch this in an objective way so that I could give it a fair rating. By doing that, I discovered that this is a really, really good biopic. It's not a basic band bio, but dives deeper into it, going into the members' family and the church's ministry and how impactful the Christian message is throughout the world. Even for a non-Christian, this would be an enjoyable and heart-tugging film. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Audience Member This movie stirred my heart like none other. It captured the essence of why we have music in our lives, and specifically why we have Christian music. I highly recommend watching this, as it will usher you into the realm where God meets with His people, and takes you to a place in your own life where you can experience the presence of God. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member Although I enjoy the music of Hillsong, the movie drags and left me disappointed. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/23/20 Full Review Audience Member I’m not really all that familiar with the band but Hillsong is a pretty by the book music documentary. I didn’t really find the human aspects of the people that are interesting and the music was just OK. A few catchy tunes but nothing more. Unless you’re a diehard fan of the band I would skip it. There’s much better music documentaries out there. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 04/29/20 Full Review Audience Member A disappointment of a documentary Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/10/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Steven D. Greydanus Decent Films It may be one-sided, but it's also genuinely moving, even to the viewer who doesn't share the band's world, or not entirely. Rated: B Sep 15, 2016 Full Review Andy Webster New York Times "God created music for the sole purpose to connect the human heart, our soul, with heaven," Joel says. Perhaps, but these tunes won't keep you awake. Sep 15, 2016 Full Review Kevin Crust Los Angeles Times Though there is undeniable uplift to the performances and Warren builds to a suitably inspiring crescendo, the film's hybrid format may prove frustrating. Sep 15, 2016 Full Review Sandie Angulo Chen Common Sense Media Moving concert docu is ideal for Christian teens, families. Rated: 4/5 Sep 23, 2016 Full Review Mike McGranaghan Aisle Seat Upbeat and meaningful. Effectively showcases how the band's work has touched lives everywhere. Rated: 3/4 Sep 20, 2016 Full Review Roger Moore Movie Nation "Hillsong's" biggest worry is "being underwhelming." Are you ready for some bad news, kids?
