What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Alan Zilberman Religious drama doesn't live up to its own ideals.
Karla Janse van Vuuren Idee van God uitgedaag in 'The Shack'.
Jim Judy An understandably angry man taking on God and company should have been dramatically powerful, captivating and moving. But as presented here, it’s anything but that. And with no real answers provided for the tough questions at hand, the entire offering ends up being a cinematic non-starter.
Tomatometer The Shack’s undeniably worthy message is ill-served by a script that confuses spiritual uplift with melodramatic clichés and heavy-handed sermonizing.
