      Journey to Bethlehem adds a solidly traditional and surprisingly fun -- albeit occasionally treacly -- entry to the lengthy list of Nativity films.

      Journey to Bethlehem is an excellent adaptation with enjoyable songs that stays true to the spirit of the story despite taking a few liberties along the way.

      Jo Ellen F C I enjoyed it. And yet was a little disturbed it was a musical for some reason. Generally I like musicals. So not sure why this bothered me. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/21/24 Full Review Claudia C very good musical!!! I like the musical about Jesus. I think the plot needed more but overall was pretty good. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/20/24 Full Review B.J. C That movie was BIG MEGA CHURCH SCHLOCK. A musical w pop songs a la MammaMia- like Marys gettin married, and Antonio Banderes singing ITS STINKING GOOD TO BE KING as Herod. Total eye roller. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 12/30/23 Full Review James L We enjoyed the singing, acting, cast, and creative script Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/19/23 Full Review Ayana Seen it three times and I love love love it!! Can’t wait to stream it over and over at home Rated 5 out of 5 stars 12/18/23 Full Review Lena It’s really good - not totally biblically accurate but the songs lowkey hit and honestly make the movie!! Like I don’t like musicals but I was vibing to the whole movie with these songs!! Really enjoyed the story !! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 12/18/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Catherine Bray Guardian If you feel the need to watch a faith film, you could do far, far worse than this one, a decently staged musical treatment of the nativity that feels like a Christian version of a live action Disney movie. Rated: 3/5 Nov 30, 2023 Full Review Randy Myers San Jose Mercury News A snappy, satisfying seasonal-appropriate gem, complete with wisecracking Three Wise Men. Rated: 3/4 Nov 15, 2023 Full Review Peter Debruge Variety A competent, if undistinguished directorial debut with the least edgy retelling of the nativity story around (which is essentially what the faith-based audience has been asking for). Nov 10, 2023 Full Review John Serba Decider Maybe I should apologize for my sacrilegious tone here, but it’s kinda in step with the tone of the movie, which takes a story that’s rather serious to many and renders it rather silly. Feb 8, 2024 Full Review Carla Hay Culture Mix As an earnest faith-based musical, Journey to Bethlehem does what it's supposed to do for its intended audience. Other people might be surprised by the charm and appeal of this pop music version of the Bible's nativity story about Jesus Christ. Jan 4, 2024 Full Review Tim Brayton Alternate Ending It's kind of hair-raising how just tacky this all is. Rated: 1.5/5 Dec 1, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews
