For such a time as this-- we have "War Room", a movie with a powerful message that is impacting lives in a way no other movie has done in a while.
"War Room" is not just about Christianity. It addresses the decaying nature of the foundation of every society-- the family. And from that position touches on other key issues that affects you and me-- ethics at the workplace, friendship, finance, forgiveness, repentance, personal responsibility, personal values etc.
It also points out the role we all need to play to awaken the sleeping giant in us, the body of Christ. People gather every Sunday in church and disperse the same way they came. All lukewarm. No power. As long as we can all manage a plastic smile, life is good but the devil is having a great time dealing. Until we get angry as Elizabeth did, take a stand and pray the devil back to hell, nothing will move. Wait, but first, there has to be a Miss Clara... that will help us become a Miss Clara for others.
I have to confess that during the first few minutes into the movie I felt a bit uncomfortable. Am I going to spend two-hours of my life watching a movie about couples struggling with their marriage? But no. The plot did unfold into other key areas that I, a single lady in the academia, bootstrapping a business idea could relate with.
Winning in life is all about having the right strategy. It does not matter who you are or what position you are in at the moment, "War room" is the movie to see this season! You won't leave the cinema the same way-- something will give. Something will spring up.
This review is nothing compared to the actual experience.
I thank God for Alex Kendrick and the team. Amazing storyline, amazing movie in honor of an AMAZING GOD! You MUST see/watch it!
On a lighter note, is it just me or did Elizabeth [Priscilla Shirer] look like Michelle Obama in this movie?
