Black Nativity was a good show, though not a Christmas must see. It had an awesomely strong cast, which is why I had over-active expectations. You figure with Forest Whitaker and Anglea Bassett co-starring together; along with the vocals of Mary J. Blige and Jennifer Hudson it should have been a block-buster. It was a "GO" at best.

This movie starts slow but builds to an excellent finale. As a story of forgiveness during this season of honoring the greatest forgiver of all it is right on point.

A much like real life. You know we sometime fall asleep I church. The plot was excellent. I did a lot of crying and rejoicing. There's nothing like a good movie without swearing. Very relative to family ambitions for their children. trying to protect them. People were clapping, and rejoicing by the end of the show. The actors were very believable. The scene in the pond shop had me on edge and praying.

The actors and actresses are outstanding and they more then measure up to their roles. The message is great and the crafting of the scenes is also very nice. The singing is outstanding but this is a very specific form of a musical in terms of the music as one would expect, lots of very high frequency for very, very long. Even though I am very fond of this music, I thought the music was a bit over the top. I felt the kids around me in the hall lost their focus and were being somewhat impatient. Many adults were texting - so you can figure that no matter what you feel, it is definitely not for everyone. The music could have been done better, especially given the outstanding talent that was involved.

Took my family, wife and two children (5)(10) on Thanksgiving Day. We could not take our eyes off the screen; the children loved the movie. We discussed the movie all the way home.
