It simplified The Wesleyan Way of Salvation in ways that nothing else has done for me as a Methodist. I studied in England for a summer and visited many of the places depicted. Great job on bringing the WesleyMethodist Movement to life on the big screen. To God be the Glory for your wonderful work. I think that Christians of any tradition will enjoy and appreciate this film, and it is a must see for anyone in the Methodist tradition who wants to know more about the founder of Methodism.
I very much appreciate your title. But I wish those who are transformed should mingle irrespective of color, country, creed and custom.
Regards , Isaac India. The film lacks depth. It shows Wesley as a confused saint. It overlooks the struggle he had in developing his religious focus when he had a flirtatious encounter with Mrs. That was a foreshadowing of his hesitancy for marriage and commitment to a family. This would have broadened his character and shown his vulnerable side. As it is he looks like a cold and withdrawn commitmentphobic and there is no reason given. The plaster saint he is shown as in the film and his incessant horseback riding to spread the word is almost laughable. And the ship on the ocean was that lifted from Pirates of the Caribbean?
Other than the character development problem for Reverend Wesley the acting was good the costumes were fantastic. The cinematography was excellent.go

It holds the viewer's attention. I suggest the producer look to the film clips not used and re-edit and shorten the film by about 20 minutes. The audience gets the horseback riding don't beat it to death.
Unfortunately this movie did not live up to my expectations. It seems much too Americanized and overdoes the scenes between Wesley and the young lady in the first part of the movie. I can't imagine anyone as proper as Wesley behaving as he is portrayed in the film. There was some kind of relationship as we know but there seem to be a lot of modern behaviors transferred into the 18th century. In addition the accents are much too American. I doubt that the colonists in Georgia would be so American in their speech at that point.
The acting was good but I think the version despite its dated technology and cheesiness is much more satisfying in portraying the ministry of Wesley. This film was excellent. I so enjoyed this and was strengthened in my faith journey. I also love that it was taken from the personal journals of John and Charles. Truly amazing man of God! Anyone living out their faith today will find encouragement.
My only complaint is that I did not want this film to end! I would love to see another as a part 2 of Wesley's life. This was a great movie I have been reading about John and Charles Wesley they were workers and so dedicated. It was a wonderful movie and displayed the prejudices that the Anglican church still has! In the film and in real life, Wesley loved her but she married another but they used different names for both people.

The film also portrayed that this woman was beaten but we don't know that at all. Yet another political push to portray women as the victim of Christian men when in fact Wesley was not. But all in all, it was a wonderful inspiring film that leads us to a greater and deeper understanding of the Gospel and the real risks of preaching these men had. Well done. Will they make another portraying the abusive wife he later had who was violent towards Wesley, also betraying his good name for many years? Shopping Cart Your cart is currently empty.
