Movie Review: The Way Home

If you have been following my blog for any length of time, you know I generally stick to all things related to books. But I do enjoy the occasional movie, so when The Way Home came up for review, I decided to step outside the box and try something new. Here is my review. Enjoy. :-)

Based on a true story THE WAY HOME is the story of one family’s desperate search to find their missing two year old son.
I wasn’t sure how a 90 minute movie could sustain a search for a little boy without feeling like it drug on. But I was pleasantly surprised that the film moved at a pace that kept me interested. Actor portrayals were well done, it didn’t feel “put on” or “tacked together”. There was no language, which I appreciated and the faith message wasn’t overdone, but mixed into the story at a good setting.
The camera for the first half of the movie jiggled some. If you are like me and tend to focus on little things like that, it can be bothersome, but once the movie hit the peak, I wasn’t noticing it anymore. There was one aspect of the story I found confusing. About the matter of one of the searcher’s younger brother they kept referring to, but the movie portrayed him like a son. This had me wondering what I missed, but I am sure with another viewing, the little confusing things will be cleared up.
Over all I thought this was a good family movie with life lessons that will make a difference beyond the last scene.
This is my honest opinion. Thanks to the publishers, Thomas Nelson through their Booksneeze program for my copy to review.


  1. I read a blurb that the boy was the searcher's brother who died. Sounds so heart-moving. Please enter me.

  2. See that is what I thought, but it sounded like they kept referring to him as the RESCUER's little brother. I need to go over that again... Thanks for coming by to read the review!
