      Critics Consensus

      While Woman is a little less heavy-handed than other message movies, it still feels like an After School Special.

      Audience Member The audience score says it all. Don't even pay attention to the critics, the audience knows what they are talking about with this film. "Woman Thou Art Loosed" is fresh in my book. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member I have been meaning to see this, and I'm glad I finally did. It was a beautiful message about how the hurt that we all experience can lead us to certain points in our life. This movie is about moving past those points and getting the healing and deliverance you need. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/14/23 Full Review Audience Member A compelling movie of God's grace reaching to the unlovable & his grace flowing into Death Row. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/25/23 Full Review Audience Member Great movie. Tear jerker though. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/14/23 Full Review Audience Member sad but great movie atthe same time Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Not bad. Tolerable, cliched stuff.

      V.A. Musetto New York Post Rated: 1/4 Apr 16, 2012 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle A very interesting, if not always successful drama that is also part revivalist sermon. Rated: 3/5 Oct 24, 2004 Full Review Mary Brennan Seattle Times A monochromatic melodrama. Rated: 2/4 Oct 22, 2004 Full Review Jae-Ha Kim Jae-Ha Kim Michelle Jordan's God-fearing mother resented her for being around, while her "Uncle" Reggie enjoyed having her around all too much. As she later tells a friend, "That ain't my home. It's just a place where part of me is buried." Rated: 3/4 Jul 26, 2023 Full Review Richard Propes TheIndependentCritic.com Kimberly Elise gives a mind-boggling performance. Rated: 3.5/4.0 Sep 27, 2020 Full Review LaTonya Taylor Christianity Today The film raises the questions it hopes churches will answer. It's clearly designed to open discussion on these questions, and to encourage churches to discuss sexual abuse. Rated: 3/4 Nov 17, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews
