Freshman university student Josh Wheaton attends a philosophy class, where Professor Radisson requires all students to submit a signed statement staying “God is dead” and never existed. When Josh refuses (due to his own beliefs), the professor challenges him to defend his position, leading to a series of confrontational presentations between himself and the professor, with the class as jury.
User Reviews: I didn’t expect to like this movie as much as I did. Originally a friend and I went to support the film, not really sure we would like it all that much. But wow! What a great story! There is more going on than the ads portray, with many different characters and situations of all kinds. There are some clunky scenes that weren’t well-edited, but overall it’s a good story not too far outside the realm of reality.
The acting was better than I expected it to be based on other comments and reviews. I’ve concluded that most viewers are over-rating or under-rating the movie, depending on their perspective on God. As a Christian, of course my friend and I had an appreciation for the subject matter, but as movie-lovers we also enjoyed the film.
