Preacher's Kid Blu-Ray Review

Preacher's Kid Blu-Ray Review

Synopsis: Family, faith and music: small-town girl Angie King leaves the first two behind to pursue a dream of singing stardom. LeToya Luckett of the original Destiny's Child makes her movie breakthrough in this inspiring tale bursting with music (including performances by Luckett and co-star/R&B hitmaker Durrell "Tank" Babbs) and talent. Luckett plays Angie, the daughter of a stern but loving bishop, whose attraction to the hunky star (Tank) of a traveling gospel show takes her on the road...and into romance, heartbreak and the realization that the happiness she seeks may be in the home she left behind. But will her disapproving father welcome his prodigal daughter back? Join Angie on a powerful coming-of-age journey.

Review: The Preacher's Kid is a genre film that I typically wouldn't have bothered with.  Mostly, because it didn't appear to offer anything new.  It appeared to be on the lines of a number of other films in the same veign that I've seen over the years.  I'm happy to say that I was pleasantly surprised with the quality and the content of the film.

The film actually had a decent message intertwined in it.  Normally this type of film just preaches, but this one really advocates that even if you raise your children in a faith that you cannot let them be naive to the way that the world works.  They really have to be able to integrate to their surroundings.

This blu-ray has a great high-definition transfer and wonderful sound, which comes in handy during a few booming gospel numbers.  LeToya Luckett certainly can sing, she does a great job of acting too.  Beyonce definately doesn't compare.   

Rating: 4 out of 5 Stars
