Dove Review

The special effects are awesome! This movie features the modern popular idea of time travel aided by a TPU (Time Pulse Unit). However, a Christian theme is incorporated into this film and a son learns more about the great love of his father which goes beyond what he even knew.

The importance of timing is a theme in the movie which includes the scripture from Ecclesiastes 3:1 about there being a time for everything. When tragedy strikes a young man named Tom becomes angry at God, even throwing his Bible into the pouring rain. The storm which is erupting at this time seems to be symbolic for the turmoil raging in the boy’s soul. Despite his pain Tom is given hope from Romans chapter eight which states that nothing, not even death, can separate us from God’s love in Christ. Due to the TPU and its help Tom winds up in the year 1917 on September 23 and he learns there is a mission for him to complete. The movie has some nice twists and surprises which should keep the audience guessing as to where the story will end up at and what the conclusion will be. Ultimately, Tom learns that God is actually a friend who is there for him at all times and the Bible is a book in which he can place his hopes.

In fact, Tom must battle a powerful evil man named Morris who intends to wipe out the Bible’s influence in the earth. Who would have thought that Tom, the same young man who tossed his Bible into the rain in grief and anger, would be the one chosen to ensure the gospel message continues to be spread? This is a powerful movie with a powerful message and we gladly award it our Dove Seal. Enjoy the special effects and the story!
