The Shack is a movie that involves a man meeting the Trinity and ... doesn't even seem to care a whole lot. That about sums up the entire agonizingly long experience of watching the movie: it's something that should, theoretically, be very interesting, but in the end, it amounts to nothing more than a generated yawn. Sam Worthington ruins whatever his character had going for him, the dialogue further dulls an overlong and underdeveloped story, and the entire experience is excruciatingly boring. [Full Review]
This is sort of a modern take on the Book of Job--why do bad things happen to good people? But instead of the Jobian God saying "It's none of your business" (paraphrased), here she/he says, "You misunderstand the mystery"--a reworking of the old saw, "God works in mysterious ways". From there on, it's hit and miss with some touching moments, and two or three really over-the-top absurdities as the story flits from flower to flower.
