I received a preview copy of The Imposter* last week and was finally able to sit down and watch it on Sunday afternoon. The movie came out yesterday and so I figured I should do my review on it.
The story is about a guy that is a lead singer in a Christian rock band. He sings about Christ on stage but his life doesn't reflect the message he is singing about.
The plot in this movie is a thought provoking one. It reveals to the audience how the lead character Johnny C isn't at all what he claims.
There were a few things that I didn't like about the movie. It was quite choppy. I couldn't figure out where the character was half the time. Was he in Texas or back in Tennessee? Did the crazy homeless guy hitchhike to Texas with Johnny C? By the way, the crazy homeless guy was my favorite character and the reference to Oprah as the bug zapper was hilarious.
It was distracting to the viewer that the story line went a few different directions without clear transitions. The story felt all over the place and the music video during the movie was a little annoying.
Overall, I would recommend this movie. It wasn't the best movie I've seen but if you want to watch a clean movie with a good message this movie will do.
