Same Kind of Different as Me had potential to be a really good movie that intertwined faith and good consciousness. Instead it was a movie about terminal illness disguised as something else, which didn’t get me to care as much as I could have. The only thing I thoroughly enjoyed about the movie was the performance of  Djimon Hounsou. He’s already a decorated actor, but this was truly the first performance where I felt he deserved an award. His abilities as an actor were so powerful and moving that I got heavily invested in his character and what happened to him. If I took away anything from this movie it would be that people can be good and that not everyone can be judged by their appearance or status in life. I knew nothing about this subject the story is about, but came away having learnt that some people changed the world by offering to volunteer.   5/10
