The Genesis Code

The Genesis Code
2010
Directed by C. Thomas Howell, Patrick Read Johnson
Rated PG
138 minutes

Scene: college. Girl (journalist) meets boy (hockey player). Boy struggles with some unanswered questions/prayers. Girl agrees to show boy that faith and science can both be true and that God does exist. Boy does not believe that if God exists that He would allow some things in his life to have happened.

While I was expecting there to be more of a story behind the hockey part of the movie, I was not disappointed by the explanation that was given about creation, which is the main point of the movie. I do wish there was a better connection between the two instead of it just being the way that the main characters meet. Seeing that the hockey was not a huge part of the movie, the beginning hockey scene is a little too lengthy. The explanation and connection that is made between science and faith was a little drawn out, and may be a bit boring for those who are not into science-y explanations. I like how some of the characters were connected to the story, but there were others who were somewhat of a distraction to the main story. And because I’m picky (hubby is a worship leader nonetheless), I wish they could have used a variety of music during the worship service instead of “nice Christian worship songs/hymns”. :p

  3. Sounds like a great movie! This would make a really good movie for a church youth group and as an outreach movie as well.
