I personally liked the movie as a form of entertainment. The plot was not complicated and somewhat predictable. Overall the movie was enjoyable and just the right length for this type of movie.

Great Family Feel Good Movie for the Holidays!

The story is at first sad but bridges the warmth of the holiday season with the ultimate love of a family bond. The music is soulful from the deep bluesy feel of Jennifer Holiday's woeful song of not being able to provide enough and Nas' rendition of "Motherless Child" rendition, to powerful gospel and rap. This is a MUST SEE movie that warms the soul in a way that a holiday movie should. Take the family!

Black Nativity Review

By thebright1
Written December 03, 2013
First of all, folks need to understand that this is a musical vs. a movie with a good sound track. That means a lot of the scenes are sung-thru rather than spoken. That might turn some folks off. The story line is predictable, but it's a good story. If I had my druthers, I would have waited for the DVD, but gotta support the cause. The featured characters have great voices; even Forrest Whitaker surprised me!
