Movie Review – The God Who Wasn’t There

Rating – B-

Saw on DVD

Borrowing the lively approach of documentaries such as Fahrenheit 9/11 and Super Size Me, ex-Christian fundamentalist Brian Flemming’s expos√© shines an unflinching spotlight on Christianity and the existence of Christ. Flemming interviews religious experts and Christians of varying backgrounds, ultimately asserting that Jesus Christ is more than likely a fictional character based on legend and that Christian doctrine is rife with contradiction.

My personal point of view is similar to Flemming’s, but I am not sure I agree with his tactics.

He set up the principle of the christian school he used to attend.

I felt that his presentation was very one-sided. In retrospect, movies like Super Size Me and Fahrenheit 9/11 probably had the same one-sided presentation; but this just felt wrong.
