'I Still Believe' Review
The directors of 2018's 'I Can Only Imagine' are back with another faith-based, true story drama. 'I Still Believe' tells the real-life story of Christian music singer Jeremy Camp and his ill-fated relationship with his true love, Melissa.
The two met while students at a Christian Bible college in Southern California in 1999. K.J. Apa from 'Riverdale' delivers a convincing, moving performance as Jeremy, and Britt Robertson is at her career best as Melissa. Country singer Shania Twain plays Jeremy's mom. And Gary Sinise is excellent in a subtle, supporting role as Jeremy's father.
The Erwin Brothers have made an emotional, spiritual romance. We're locked in on Jeremy and Melissa for nearly the entire time. Some of the scenes are quite simple and lovely. Others are more complex and challenging.
There isn't much of a focus put on Jeremy's meteoric music career rise. And a couple of other minor elements are presented in a shallow and slightly confusing manor. But overall, 'I Still Believe' delivers the purpose and power you hope for.
