ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇIt is great to see a Christian film that unabashedly says what it wants. Its message of truth is clear.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å« ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å Andrea McAteer, ChristianAnswers.net
ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇThis movie has a strong faith-based message and points to Christ as mankind's future and only hope. It should be noted that there are moments of strong violence in the film including people being shot and a couple of characters display very bloody wounds and the blood flows on their clothes and on a man's hands. Several people do die. Despite the violent moments there are strong themes of faith so we are awarding our Faith Based Seal to the movie with a caution for violence.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å« ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å Edwin L.

ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´åÇTHE MARK is a highly entertaining action thriller. ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ It has a very positive Christian worldview with themes of forgiveness and redemption. Jesus Christ is extolled and the Gospel is presented in conversion scene with prayer. There is some action violence that requires a light caution. Otherwise, THE MARK is a very wholesome, redemptive action movie.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å« ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å MOVIEGUIDEÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎå«Ì´ÌàÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎÌ_ÌÎå¢

ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ What makes this thriller interesting is that ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ__ Chad was not a Christ-follower, not even a believer when the implant was inserted. He had heard the Gospel several times from his brother, but had not taken it as a serious option. But while on Flight 747, with a chip planted in his arm, and an evil power-play jostling for his life, his opinion drastically shifted from an unbeliever to a desperate seeker of truth.ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ_Ì´å« ÌÎÌ_ÌÎ_ÌÎÌ__ÌÎÌ_Ì´åÇÌÎå«Ì´å Janey DeMeo, The Examiner
