ALL SAINTS is based on the inspiring true story of salesman-turned-pastor Michael Spurlock (John Corbett), the tiny church he was ordered to shut down, and a group of refugees from Southeast Asia. Together, they risked everything to plant seeds for a future that might just save them all.
Far from perfect, yet a remarkable and moving story
Overall the film is very enjoyable, and will be more so for those that are religious, even more so, for those with Christian backgrounds. It panders tho those audiences, but anybody with good sense can find something pure and inspiring from the film's story.
It starts off rocky, with poor editing and confusing scenarios, however as the plot develops and we learn more about the characters, it seems to pick itself back up and progress more smoothly. The film is rather plain in and of itself, but does a great job bringing an ordinary and believable true story to life, while delivering a strong message about community and faith.
Nothing truly stands out as extremely amazing about the film, but neither is there anything horrible. What the film does very well, is bringing a true story to the screen. It is quite real, believable, and does not exaggerate miracles. It is simply what it is, nothing overly grandeur, even using real people from the story to play themselves, because why not? The story is about them, and a humble tale to help inspire those who watch it.
Through its flaws, it's well put together and quite enjoyable. It's essentially a feel-good completely family friendly story, a film Hallmark movies pretend to be.
