“Heaven is For Real” movie review

“Heaven is For Real”  Movie opens Easter Sunday and promises to be a tear jerker

In the book,  Heaven Is Real,Christian pastor Todd Burpo writes that during the months after his emergency surgery in 2003, his son Colton began describing events and people that seemed impossible for him to have seen or met. Examples include his miscarried sister, whom no one had told him about, and his great grandfather who died 30 years before Colton was born. Colton also claimed that he personally met Jesus riding a rainbow-colored horse and sat in Jesus’ lap, while the angels sang songs to him.  He also says he saw Mary kneeling before the throne of God and at other times standing beside Jesus. Pastor Moody says that “Heaven is Real” to him.

 

“Heaven Is for Real” became Hollywood’s fourth overtly faith-based hit of the year over the Easter weekend, taking in an estimated $21.5 million — double the dismal ticket sales that Johnny Depp mustered for his latest big-budget effort.
