I didn't really have that much desire to see this movie, as I was not a fan of the first one, but I went with someone else who did want to see it. In general, I don't really like preachy faith-based films, and this definitely fell into that category.
As a faith-based film, this movie definitely succeeds. It is moving, it is inspirational, it is everything that it tries to be. One thing that it doesn't try to be, though, is a well-made movie.
The movie isn't really cinematically well-made. The dialogue feels forced a lot of the times. The film has a somewhat cheap feel to it (albeit far less than that of the predecessor). It feels overlong, with many scenes that are stretched out too far. That being said, I felt that the legal proceedings in this film were much more interesting than the student's research in the previous film.
So overall, "God's Not Dead 2" definitely has value for what it is: an inspirational faith-driven film. Is it very good? No. Will some people love it? Yes. Should you rush out to see it? No.
