Before The Grace Card came out in theaters last February, my pastor showed some clips of it at church and encouraged us to see the movie at the theater. We weren’t able to go see it at the moie theater but I added it to our list of DVDs we wanted to see. Today The Grace Card is available on DVD.
We watched the movie as a family last Saturday night. The story of grace and redemption is powerful and the acting is well done. Overall we enjoyed the movie though there were some glaring inconsistencies that we all saw, though that is to be expected, considering this is the first movie from Memphis-based Graceworks Pictures in conjunction with Calvary Pictures. The first thing that jumped out at us is the police officers never wear their seat belts! Also, in some of the driving scenes the police officer is moving the steering wheel like he is turning but the background never changes.
In case you aren’t familiar with The Grace Card here is a brief synopsis:
Everything can change in an instant … and take a lifetime to unravel. When Mac McDonald loses his son in an accident, the ensuing 17 years of bitterness and pain erodes his love for his family and leaves him angry with God … and just about everyone else.
Mac’s rage stonewalls his career in the police department and makes for a combustible situation when he’s partnered with Sam Wright, a rising star on the force—who happens to be a part-time pastor and a loving family man.
Can they somehow join forces to help one another when it’s impossible for either of them to look past their differences—especially the most obvious one?
Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships and heal deep wounds by extending and receiving God’s grace. Offer THE GRACE CARD … and never underestimate the power of God’s love.
