Movie reviews:

The fact that Pastor Fischer would probably consider the film an accurate portrayal of her mission may be the most terrifying thing of all.

This team has succeeded at making a film that opens a subculture without programming our responses to it.

Doesn’t function particularly well as a documentary; it lacks a strong editorial point of view and doesn’t really comment on the evangelical movement so much as it just portrays a selection of people and their views.

A fascinating glimpse of kids’ role in the evangelical movement’s political agenda.

If we are in the midst of a culture war, as many people proclaim in Jesus Camp, then the left should be concerned. The right’s Christian soldiers appear to be extremely well trained.

Jesus Camp works nicely as a time-capsule document confirming the impact — and popularity — of American evangelism.

    This movie certainly is real and an eye opener for many. Yet, if you want to watch an upbeat documentary about a overnight summer camp in Wisconsin I suggest summercamp!
