Movie Review & Giveaway "The Genesis Code"

  Trailer Courtesy of American Epic Entertainment

Synopsis:  Kerry Wells (Kelsey Sanders), a college journalist and committed Christian with an effervescent personality, has been assigned to do a story on Blake Truman (Logan Bartholomew) the college’s newest and very popular hockey superstar. As a relationship between them begins to develop Kerry finds that Blake, who hides behind a tough and independent fa├žade, is actually struggling through a difficult personal crisis and that he bears the cross of a secret he has kept hidden for years. Blake rebuffs Kerry's suggestion that prayer might help ease his burden; he is convinced that modern science completely disproves the Bible, especially the opening verses of Genesis. Kerry — who is herself suddenly confronted with a challenge to her faith on another front — sets out to prove that science and Genesis are not in conflict and her quest leads to a startling revelation. Could it be that what science teaches us about creation and the Story as told in Genesis are both true!

Review:  I viewed The Genesis Code with my husband and found that it balanced well opposing viewpoints, Creation and Evolution. The young actors (Kelsey Sanders) and (Logan Bartholomew) were believable in their roles and this is a great family movie especially if you have teenagers or college age children. My oldest son is in college and he commented that he has questioned some of his religious beliefs after some of the material he was presented with in his philosophy and biology courses so our family found The Genesis Code very relevant to our lives. I found that it was a little difficult to follow in  places when the actors started arguing for Creation and talking about scientific theory but I loved the ending. I do not want to reveal the ending because that would spoil it for my readers but if it does not leave you in tears I would be surprised. This movie would make a great addition to the family collection and I recommend it.
