The film revolves around Colton Burpo a 4 year old and his father who is a pastor. Greg Kinnear displays a solid and earnest showing here. Connor Corum was really wonderful but the slow start just kills it. Visual effects looked authentic and the story itself is worth viewing. Had moments where the cinematography was just gorgeous.

Some may think this is a boring film (so Christian), no, it isn't. Though the whole film, the cinematic technique and direction, feels like really heavenly and visually comforting it won't make you asleep. You feel the lightness of the film and at the same the amazement on how everything Colton says are true and …

A must watch for non believers

From a guy who always kept his religious beliefs quiet (And still do) as soon as I read online about Colton Burpo a 4 year old who told his father pastor Todd Burpo (Played by Greg Kinnear in the film) that he, after being almost declared dead during surgery for a ruptured appendix, had visited heaven and met Jesus with the most vivid detail including info he couldn't possibly have known needless to say I immediately ran out and picked up the book..perfect timing as I was having extreme difficulties with my own beliefs. Put it this way the book was a head scratcher ....

Now they released a film on the book and to be quite honest with you I had little and no interest seeing (I always believe the book to be better in any case scenario ) however after finally sitting down and watching …
