Mikel Wisler on the state of Christian Cinema

Mikel Wisler, who you might recall wrote one of, if not the first review of Fireproof that we linked to way back in July, has an interesting article on the state of Christian Cinema.  He talks a lot about the stereotypical "proselytizing" movies, such as Left Behind and The Omega Code, and compares Fireproof quite favorably to them.  

I'm really interested in seeing Fireproof, but I am concerned that it is not making as big an improvement on movies such as Left Behind as it might seem.  Those films were awful movies, designed to "reach out" to non-Christians but appealing only to Christians willing to overlook those flaws.

Only time will tell, and fortunately, for Fireproof that time is soon.
