Overcomer is extremely uplifting, inspirational, entertaining, and moving.

This was a slow boring predictable movie with the worst acting I have ever witnessed.

We all need to see movies it out both entertaining and make you feel good.

The momentum in the film and the race will have you on the edge of your seat!

It is a faith-based fictional story with a good message, we enjoyed it.

There are some nice shots during the climax, but the directing and cinematography are mostly bland.

Among the most enjoyable and well made Christian films I have ever seen and among the most enjoyable films I have seen in the past several years.

An extremely moving and enjoyable film .

So, if you are pre-disposed to propaganda-based movies, you will probably enjoy this.

I was a little disoriented in the first hour of it, in how boring and amateurish it was, AS A MOVIE.

Edit out the faith elements and the message of betrayal and redemption, bringing a wayward parent and the betrayed child is very compelling an uplifting.

Is this the worst movie I have ever seen?

Young Aryn Wright-Thompson was so watchable and enjoyable.

Cheesy acting, overdramatic, churchy, religious propaganda.

All the leads create quite a believable family, one that is entertaining, funny, and comes of natural in (most) of their deliveries of a family facing tough times that somehow makes it relevant in ways.

We all enjoyed it very much!

One of my areas of interest is to see Christian film get better and grow into a legitimate art form rather than co-opted into a glorified gospel tract or propaganda.

Religious propaganda thinly veiled as an inspirational sports movie.

I loved this movie and will highly recommend it to everyone I know.

Although it can sometimes be a bit predictable, there were enough surprises to keep it interesting and entertaining.

Started off well enough from the storyline point of view, despite the mostly dull flat acting.

no filthy language, no violence, no gore, no sex, etc. I enjoyed it.

I enjoyed it.

I enjoyed it.

Unexpected Inspiration .

There were some parts of the film that were predictable and other parts that surprised me, and all of it was enjoyable.

I highly recommend it for church youth groups.

The other half falls flat with its bland editing and acting.

Many of the animated style films from her early childhood tend to bore her now and we are not candidates for The Missing Link or The Adaams Family.

A complete waste of time and how about we never gonna talk about this movie again

At about the halfway mark the movie reveals itself as a full blown and nauseous evangelical propaganda excercise.

Despite it's compelling and moving narrative, Overcomer still fails in what it is.

Great film, fun and engaging.

Great film, fun and engaging.

Slow start.

The acting was excellent and the storying was relevant and gripping.

This is such an enjoyable story, with good family life and breakthroughs in relationships.

Clean, gospel driven and enjoyable.

Yeah you tear up occasionally and you respect Overcomer's languid, PG rating.

The movie dragged on with melodramatic talk scenes that only preached to its target audience.

The acting was of the highest caliber, natural and compelling by all.

I love all of the Kendrick Brothers films but initially found this one to be a little predictable and a little on the cheesy side in the beginning.

Waste of time and money (ours) .

I highly recommend it for church youth groups.

Another propaganda production .
