Fresh: Matheson's script focuses its energy on small, wickedly funny gags, half of which Robinson seems to have sputtered out as improv.
- Amy Nicholson, Los Angeles Times, Thursday, June 6, 2013
A brilliant idea but very poorly produced. The budget is low but what they do with it is impressive, the special effects are very good but not unnecessary or overdone (which they could have been). The idea is so clever though, it is such a shame they couldn't have polished up the script a little better. I loved the characters; the Mum who gets kicked out of heaven for arguing in the queue, the atheists who just carry on among the blood rain and meteors, the demons who are left behind who turn to drugs, the talking locusts, it's all very dry and witty. Only the Craig Robinson scenes are overlong and a bit too heavy handed. I like the way that atheists are portrayed as well, after all, this is for them. As one myself, I very much appreciated it. You have the atheists who have thought about it and don't believe and then you have the people who just haven't given it any real thought, there is a huge difference. The argument with God and the Antichrist is brilliant because it's not over done or nonsensical, it visualises God's word and the scriptures and shows it for the ridiculous idea that it is without having to poke fun at it. If you believe it is offensive and ridiculous I suggest you re-read the bible. Anyway, belief aside, it's a great idea but like I said, not brilliantly produced with a notable lull in the middle. Worth it though if the idea appeals.
