The Genesis Code begins with college journalist Kerry Wells being assigned to interview the newest hockey star at her school, Blake Truman. As Kerry gets to know Blake and they start to become friends, she learns that Blake is going through a huge personal crisis. She suggests he turn to prayer and he in turn tells her he believes that modern science completely disproves the Bible, especially the story of Genisis. With the help of her brother, who happens to be a science whiz, Kerry sets out to prove that maybe both science AND the Bible are right!
I thought this was a really interesting movie. I found all of the many characters likeable and their questions and reservations to be valid concerns that someone might face, especially in college. I really enjoyed the explination of how science and the Bible are both true because of the difference in how time was perceived in Biblical times and how it is now. I thought this movie did a great job of drawing the parallels between the two. The Genesis Code will cause it's viewers to think outside of the box, a wonderful sign of a good, thought provoking movie.
The only complaint I have is that a good portion of this story is about a hockey player, so I thought there would be at least some hockey in the movie. The beginning starts off with a game, but it also happens to be the beginning of Christmas break, so there wasn't too much hockey. It only bothered me because it seemed to be that it would be a part of the story, however it didn't take away from the story line at all and it wasn't really a big deal. Just a personal bit of knit-pickiness. :) I still really felt this was a good faith based movie with a great cast. Fans of The Love Comes Softly series will love seeing Logan Bartholomew in an entirely different role and there is even a small part played by Catherine Hicks from the popular television series, Seventh Heaven.
