I just got back from seeing “The Nativity Story”. Wow – I left ready to worship. There has always been something about the story of the birth of Christ that gets to me. My eyes were filled with tears many times throughout the movie. To see common men, like shepherds, being invited to come worship the newborn babe. Then to see the wise Magi come and worship, too, is very powerful. It was great to see the story brought to life on the big screen.
The only thing I would have done differently is try to make the angel and scenes where the angel appears be more dramatic, a little scarier, the angel a little bigger and more supernatural. That’s my only “complaint”. Otherwise, I thought it was very well done and is a great movie to see during the month of December to remind us what Christmas is really about.
