Everything can change in an instant, and take a lifetime to unravel. Every day, we have the opportunity to rebuild relationships by extending and receiving God's grace. Offer The Grace Card, and never underestimate the power of God's love.

Filled with heart, humor, and wit, WAR ROOM follows Tony and Elizabeth Jordan, a couple who seemingly have it all-great jobs, a beautiful daughter, their dream home. But appearances can be deceiving. In reality, their marriage has become a war zone and their daughter is collateral damage. With guidance from Miss Clara, an older, wiser woman, Elizabeth discovers she can start fighting for her family instead of against them. As the power of prayer and Elizabeth's newly energized faith transform her life, will Tony join the fight and become the man he knows he needs to be? Together, their real enemy doesn't have a prayer.Written by
I don't normally write reviews but figured I'd go ahead for this one, being that this is a limited release low budget film.
The movie is about the power of prayer - It showed these themes very well.
I felt that this movie was very uplifting and encouraging, but it felt heavy emotionally and some of it was hard for me to watch. I had a headache afterwards. Not really sure why. I cried a few times. But in the end it was still a well done film.
I don't want to say too much to give away any plot points.
The acting was okay. But I've seen way way worse acting. The daughter was definitely the best actor in the movie.
The production values were pretty solid, this didn't feel like a TV movie. There were a few things that bothered me about the movie such as realism/continuity but I let it slide, because I was interested in the subject.
The only other thing about the movie that bothered me was the running time. 2 hours is long for any movie and there were times when I felt like it dragged on.
They had a low budget but not so low that they couldn't make a good looking movie. $3M was their budget according to box office mojo and it's already made $11M - not bad at all for only being out 3 days - and they've already made more than double their money back.
If you are a brother or sister in Christ then go see this movie to be encouraged to seek God more and pray more! It definitely encouraged my faith - and I pray that it will encourage you too.
