Do You Believe? Is a Christian movie with an all-star cast. I was intrigued by how the film would play out with names like Sean Astin, Lee Majors, Cybill Shepard, Delroy Lindo, Brian Bosworth, Mira Sorvino, and Ted McGinley. I know a lot of these names from a variety of films, just didn’t expect to see them all in this one.
This film has a lot of different stories going on at the same time. Some interact with each other while others don’t. Some characters will intersect, while others will never meet. The only thing they have in common is all their stories will end on one particular evening, all in the same accident on the bridge.
Like most stories with multiple storylines, you get invested in some and could care less about the others. I loved the story that featured Bosworth and Sorvino’s characters. His character has a heart of gold, despite facing a life-threatening illness. The way everything plays out for him could bring the emotionally vulnerable to tears, as it did to me.
McGinley’s character is the only Pastor of the group and comes face to face with death at one point, only to save a life at the end of the movie. His character really got to see life come full circle. Astin’s character is hardly in the film. For an actor known for making Christian films, I was surprised to see him come across so brash and rude. He totally deserves what he gets at the ending, which is saying something for this genre.
There is a lot to take in while watching Do You Believe? I consider it the best Christian film I have ever seen because it got me emotionally invested in so many random people. These people were already God-fearing or had no clue that God was watching over them. As a sucker for a good tear-jerker, this movie has plenty of those moments in the end. There are even a handful of moments that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
Quite honestly, I didn’t expect a whole lot but was utterly blown away at how good this movie was and how it all came together at the end. 9/10
