Reviews - What do customers think about Cross & Switchblade?
Very awesome and powerful movie. Aug 25, 2004
The acting may be a bit on the poor side, but this is an awesome and powerful movie. This movie is about a small town minister in a gang-infested city, trying to get the word of God across to the gangs. Trying to get Gods unconditional love across to the gangs. He wants to fill the gangs with love so bad, that he does whatever it takes, including entering their "turf" to tell them that Jesus loves them. I'm telling you, this movie is just powerful to see who and what God's love can change. I highly recommend this movie to all, Christian or not. Even though the acting is a bit so-so, I am giving it all 5 stars because of the power I believe this movie has. Please watch this movie. You will be moved.

The book itself was excellent. The movie is so lame it's not even a good waste of time.
Dramatic, vivid, and very highly recommended viewing Jul 16, 2003
