Clint Worthington RogerEbert.com It's your standard warm, fuzzy tale of Christian love that plays to the church set in ways that are hardly objectionable, even as it plays those notes straight down the middle with little finesse. Rated: 2.5/4 Jul 7, 2024 Full Review Kyle Smith Wall Street Journal Sound of Hope, like its predecessor, is a big-hearted film made with a homespun sincerity that comes as a refreshing surprise at the multiplex these days, though it has the gauzy, simplistic feel of a cable-TV movie. Jul 3, 2024 Full Review Nell Minow Movie Mom It never allows its characters to question their faith or even lose patience. It glosses over the challenges of raising severely traumatized children. But it is a sincere, thoughtful effort that could get an audience beyond the core faith community. Rated: B Jul 3, 2024 Full Review Tim Appelo AARP Movies for Grownups It’s likely less fictionalized than the controversial Sound of Freedom. But it plods, and lacks that film’s propulsive plot. Still, it definitely is heartwarming. Rated: 3/5 Jul 12, 2024 Full Review Rachel Wagner Rachel's Reviews (YouTube) One of the best movies of the year Jul 12, 2024 Full Review Erik Childress Movie Madness Podcast The film leans so hard into the ‘God told me to do good things’ that it diminishes the altruistic message we should all aspire towards on our own. Perhaps its characters should watch Penny Lane’s Confessions of a Good Samaritan for inspiration. Rated: 2/4 Jul 10, 2024 Full Review Read all reviews
