Review:

Welcome to The FishFlix.com Christian Movie podcast. Every Wednesday we review a Christian film, informing you about the story, production quality, and family friendliness. Our goal is to bring you all the latest news and insights on Christian movies and recommend wholesome films for you to watch together as a family. I’m your host Noah Metzger and today we’ll be reviewing God’s Not Dead 2.

God’s Not Dead 2 is releasing next month on April 1st and was produced by Pure Flix Entertainment. The film stars Melissa Joan Hart, Ray Wise, and David A.R. White. This film is the continuation of 2014’s mega-hit God’s Not Dead and continues the story of certain characters while introducing new ones simultaneously. If you’re interested in finding out more about this film after our review, it will be available soon on our website at www.fishflix.com.

From the college classroom of GOD’S NOT DEAD to the public square in GOD’S NOT DEAD 2, the name of Jesus is welcomed less and less with each passing day. If Christians don’t take a stand today, will we even have a choice tomorrow?

Welcome back to Hope Springs … home not only of Hadleigh University, but also Martin Luther King Jr. High School, where beloved teacher Grace Wesley helps students understand and enjoy history. Her love of teaching, her love for her students, and her love of life all come from the same place: her love of Christ.

So when Brooke, a hurting student grieving the loss of her brother, reaches out to Grace, their coffee-shop conversation naturally leads to Grace sharing the hope she finds in Christ.

When Brooke later asks an honest question about Jesus in the classroom, Grace’s reasoned response lands her in big trouble—almost before she even finishes giving her answer.

With the principal and superintendent joining forces with a zealous civil liberties group, Grace faces an epic court case that could cost her the career she loves and expel God from the classroom—and the public square—once and for all!

GOD’S NOT DEAD 2 is the highly anticipated sequel to the beloved Pure Flix movie from 2014 and features an all-star cast. Coming to theaters beginning April 1, 2016, GOD’S NOT DEAD 2 will have audiences standing proudly for what they believe … while they still can. Where will you stand?

God’s Not Dead 2 was an obvious movie to make. After the huge success of God’s Not Dead back in 2014, it only made sense that Pure Flix would make a follow up film. And after more successes like Do You Believe? last year, God’s Not Dead 2 continues the trend with what will most likely be another box office sensation.

I had the opportunity to go watch this film pre-release and I can definitely see how they have been able to improve over the first film. The production value is clearly bigger and better, and I didn’t notice nearly as many production flaws as I could with the first film. I appreciate their willingness to improve over previous films and I would say it was very apparent here.

God’s Not Dead 2 definitely tries to continue the same idea of the first film, although it was taken to a much bigger scope in this film. It all led up to a huge and exciting courtroom battle and I really appreciated the intense courtroom scenes. It made me think of old courtroom dramas like Perry Mason episodes or Inherit the Wind. They definitely tried to take the scope to the next level in this movie, making this bigger than just a student in a classroom.

Another thing I appreciated about this film was how it continued the stories of certain characters from the previous movie. I enjoyed seeing the Pastor Dave, Martin, and Amy all back from the first film. I particularly enjoyed the continuation of the story of Martin. At the end of God’s Not Dead, we see him becoming interested in Faith, and this movie follows up with that story bringing us the next chapter of his life.

If you enjoyed the original God’s Not Dead, you are sure to enjoy the sequel. This movie does a great job of recapturing the same feel while also introducing new plotlines and new ideas. While it definitely featured a similar concept and idea, it didn’t feel like a retread or repeat. This movie covered new ground and made some obvious improvements over the first film.

The story of Pureflix entertainment is a fascinating one as they have risen to popularity over recent years with films like God’s Not Dead and Do You Believe? This movie has a similar call to action like the first movie, and I’m sure word about this movie will spread just as much as the first one. I look forward to seeing how this movie is received and how it does at the box office. The original God’s Not Dead surprised not only Christians but the secular market with its amazing success at the box office, and hopefully this film will have the same kind of reception.

This film is appropriate for all ages and contains very little content that could be considered objectionable. The idea behind this film is that it will appeal to all ages and be a good and wholesome film for families to go and watch together. But as always, we recommend that you watch this film first and decide if it’s appropriate for your particular family.
