Evan Almighty

"Evan Almighty" is a story of a Evan Baxter who prayed to change the world and the Lord answering his prayers in the most unpopular way possible!

“Evan Almighty” is a timely sequel to 2003's "Bruce Almighty" with a creative twist, nemesis Evan Baxter gets to receive God's prank! Although we kinda missed Jim Carrey, Steve Carell puts on his unique rendition of a man who talks to God. The animation worked pretty well, and we are satisfactorily entertained by harmonious display of animals. All in all, the film is fast-paced and should be slowed down to give way to more emotions.

But beyond all technicalities, Evan Almighty is an example of how religious themes could be as relevant and as entertaining as with other genres using digital animation and still get their message across millions of audience both young and old. God is alive here and now, and the messages as old as Noah will find their way to the present.

Rating: 4/5
