Story comes Thru - awful production value
30 March 2009 | by Babe in the CitySee all my reviews

I was looking forward to seeing this film ... I remember seeing Arthur Blessitt on TBN back in the early 80's and was just fascinated with his tales of his travels around the world with the cross. He had such an infectious personality ... there was always so much energy and joy he radiated. Thankfully the story of his life comes across but the production value of the film was unfortunately awful. Bad editing and sound mixing to name a few ... which is a shame. I left the theatre wanting a Jesus STICKER .. like the ones he hands out on the streets to the people he meets. I wish they would have handed them out as we left the theatre!
