A couple weekends ago my Dad and I rented Guy Ritchie's The Covenant (2023). While some war films are shallow and gratuitous, this film was the opposite.
The acting is solid, especially from Dar Salim. And while Jake Gyllenhaal is a phenomenal actor, I connected less with his character in this film than in others. At times he came across as flat. Perhaps that was what he was going for? I still enjoyed watching him on the screen, though.
An inclusive way is when a story highlights ideas or images found in Christianity. They’re not exclusive to Christianity but overlap with other philosophies or worldviews. For example, a story might highlight the importance of marriage or the moral code written on our hearts. Non-Christian philosophies and worldviews can do this because of the doctrine of common grace!
This final category is more subjective than craft or content, as it’s based on our opinion, or how we received the film. And it may be the most enjoyable part of reviewing a film for me.
