There is literally one moment in which it raises an interesting theological problem, then goes right back to what it was doing before...a movie designed to preach to the choir. Full Review
Kermode & Mayo's Film Review
May 22, 2019
Rating: 3/5 -- This Is Us regular Chrissy Metz makes her presence felt as the boy's mum, and Topher Grace and Josh Lucas bring modest star power to a slick if sometimes slushy against-the-odds drama that's perfectly watchable, whether you subscribe to its claims or not. Full Review

Rating: 3/5 -- Sure, it gets a little bit melodramatic here and there, but what's a good family drama without a little cheese? Full Review

Rating: 1/5 -- As the film's saccharine sanctimoniousness swells, the intendedly God-awesome turns to the increasingly God-awful. Full Review

Rating: 2/4 -- Another glib and unconvincing faith-based movie that pushes miracles, spirituality and divine intervention, hoping for box-office gold. A terrific cast is the only thing that saves it from last rites. Full Review

This brand of lazy, simple-minded propaganda is long past its sell-by date, and Breakthrough does next to nothing to break out of that cycle. Full Review

Rating: 2/5 -- Here is another illustration of how the faith-based drama has pushed into cinemas material indistinguishable from vast swathes of the afternoon TV schedule. Full Review

Product Description:

Based on a true story, this biographical drama directed by Roxann Dawson follows the incident of 14-year-old John Smith (Marcel Ruiz,) who falls into a frozen Missouri lake after playing on it with friends. Now unconscious in a hospital bed, John's adoptive parents fret about his chances of survival. But his mother Joyce Smith (Chrissy Metz) won't give up hope and pours all her efforts and prayers into bringing her son back, as she asks God for a miracle.
