HEAVEN IS FOR REAL (Theatrical Release USA 2014)


Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Heaven is for Real puts into movie format Colton Burpo’s vision of heaven. The casting choice of Conner Corum for Colton works very well. The information causes wonder and establishes another example of the life after death experience. The movie also includes the story of Akiane Kramerik and her painting of Jesus. The overall film needs boosting for effect, but the message is strong and well-supported. The acting and portrayal are good.

Storyline

A boy has an otherworldly experience which his parents must understand in a real-world context.
