      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      The Shack's undeniably worthy message is ill-served by a script that confuses spiritual uplift with melodramatic clichés and heavy-handed sermonizing.

      Tara Brady Irish Times Perhaps there are Christians who will appreciate The Shack's Oprahfied universal heaven, wherein no bad deed goes punished. But it made us pine for the Book of Job God to spitefully hurl leviathans and behemoths. Rated: 2/5 Jun 28, 2017 Full Review Wendy Ide Observer (UK) Making a sincere film about religious faith is a tricky thing to pull off. And this folksy dose of misguided manipulation demonstrates many of the common pitfalls. Rated: 1/5 Jun 11, 2017 Full Review Kevin Maher Times (UK) Touchy-feely New Age therapy runs headlong into evangelical Christianity in The Shack. Rated: 2/5 Jun 9, 2017 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens Essentially a parable at its core, like the book, the film challenges traditional Christian viewpoints, notably in the visual interpretation of God. Rated: 3/5 Oct 30, 2019 Full Review Nicholas Bell IONCINEMA.com The Shack is as graceless as its monosyllabic title. Rated: 1/5 Oct 5, 2019 Full Review Louisa Moore Screen Zealots The Shack is far from profound or thought provoking, but it's not as harmful or hurtful to outsiders as most doctrinally centered films tend to be. Rated: 3/5 Dec 20, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews

      Darcie J Every time I watch this movie I pick up more. Very awesome and worth watching multiple times. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/09/22 Full Review Elliot C I have to watch this in class and it is so painful. I would rather do a 12 marker Rated 1 out of 5 stars 06/10/24 Full Review Don E Look, I'm no starry eyed simpleton or religious lemming. This movie though is a fantastic view of what the love of God surely is. We should be so fortunate to hope what a relationship is and will be. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 06/07/24 Full Review Brian D I cannot believe some of the reviews given here. Take the movie for what it is, a wonderful journey that we all must face sometime in our lives. Very human, hard, and emotional. For anyone who is grieving, this is powerful. For anyone who is a human being this is powerful. The main message that I took away from this personally is let it all go, and let God be the judge. How it should be. Not people, GOD. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review Dustin L If you're looking for a Christian movie, this isn't it. Has nothing to do with Christianity. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/24 Full Review Ashley N This movie was amazing. Must watch! Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/24 Full Review Read all reviews
