Still, a film worth watching at home or in youth group, Breakthrough's quality is best left at the comfort of your own home rather than the theater.

I recommend the movie because it is very exciting.

Really engaging film.

Partially true but felt like a propaganda piece for the church especially when you read into the actual truth.

Every scene with her caterwauling made the movie near unbearable to sit through.

The mother's extreme weight was unnecessary and confusing.

I would particularly cite the works of Jefferson Moore, most of which are enjoyable and thought provoking on several levels.

So don't waste your time.

This film can make a grown man cry, my daughter loved it, my wife enjoyed it.

Other than that, this is a great film, with good drama and emotional moments, appropriate and enjoyable for the whole family.

Boring and an over exaggerated plot.

Someone on another review site said they found the relationship change between the pastor and the mom obvious and predictable - again, this is apparently how it happened to the actual people those characters are based on.

Pointless .

Its an engrossing well made terrific top quality Sunday afternoon movie that is just amazing.

The worst movie of my life .

I would like to remind the people giving it one star reviews or saying that some of the events or relationships are "predictable" that it's based on a true story and I'm told they stayed true to the basic events.

100% Worth Watching!.

I'll just give one example - and I think that will explain it: When John is in the hospital, and we are all supposed to pray for him to survive, his church family gathers outside to sing a rousing praise song.

I found the acting of Chrissy Metz and Topher Grace to be phenomenal and engaging.

Engaging story and acting .


I got dragged to see this by my friend.

Kept us on the edge of our seats.

Save your money.

Beside those moments it was extremely boring with bad-timed jokes and lack acting.
