‘Amazing Grace Review’ By Kenneth Turan, Times Staff Writer

“Amazing Grace,” a story of idealism, idealists and speaking truth to power, understands there is something inordinately moving and dramatic about a man who stands up for what is right and makes a difference in this life.

Inspiring epic celebrates the triumph of passion over evil By William Arnold, Seattle Post Intelligencer

“…those who take the plunge will be rewarded with an unusually satisfying and inspiring historical epic from one of contemporary cinema’s best filmmakers…”

Amazing Grace Review: A stirring and important drama by Stax, IGN Movies

Amazing Grace is the film that Amistad should have been. It is a moving and engrossing story about well-meaning real-life people out to right one of history’s great wrongs.

    Our family of five saw the movie today. A perfect blending of a man’s secular and nonsecular life. A perfect blending of a most dire subject with wit and intelligence. I am proud to have become acqainted with these historical figures.

    i absolutely loved this movie. it was outstanding and deserves oscar nods for next year. at the end, when amazing grace played, you could hear a pin drop. not one person got up from thier seat until every credit had been rolled.

    This movie was one of the best I have ever seen…it rates right up there with “THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST” and “BRAVEHART”. Our family of five will never be able to sing the hymn again without being moved deeply. Prior to this movie we had never given the horrors of the slave trade much thought…but we were so inspired that we came right home and looked up William Wilberforce in our encylclopedia. Did you know that the oldest African American college in this country was named Wilberforce?

    Wow - what a wonderful film. I figured I would like it but didn’t figure on how good it was going to be.
    I cried twice.

    Albert Finney should be recognized for a best supporting actor nomination

    Just fantastic in every way. A historic subject addressing a timely topic–how do we retain our compassion in a time of war.

    It is a film that celebrates the virtues of liberal idealism. And present a vision of Christian action very alien to the moral majority crowd.

    I have to balk at the comparison to any Mel Gibson film, particularly his vengeance films. This film is not about vengeance, but about compassion.
